    Scene you have mentioned job boards one that I have found that Granted.com was also very helpful to go to as well. they have everything laid out so well and it was a easy site to navigate. I would recommend that they look at Granted.com.

    I think this is a great program. My husband after leaving the Marines was so worried about not being able to find a job. I was so proud of him. He had only been home a day and had a job interview that following Friday after his return. I asked him how he was able to find a job in our area so fast (because we live in a terribly small town). He told me that he was looking on job sites such as: Indeed.com and CareerBuilder.com he said they really helped him out and made things very easy to find. I would highly recommend these sites to anyone looking for employment. They have tons of job listings. I want to thank you all for your service and wish you luck with everything.

      I don’t know of any. What kind of skills do you have? I may have some ideas for you but I can’t make any promises. I just want to help a little if I can.

    Hello, your resume’ is key to getting rejected or getting the job. Get help from a writing Center at a Community College or University. Make yourself look exactly like what they are looking for, then you will get the interview. Read all you can about interviews and sell yourself like you are above their expectations. I did it for 35 years after the Military. Good-luck,

      Thank you for the advice, Charles. I am DEFINITELY going to follow it! I can’t seem to get any call backs for interviews. I have a lot of good experience so the only thing I can figure is that my resume and cover letter are not up to speed. Fortunately, I’m taking classes at a community college AND a 4-year college, so I should be able to get some great help there. Are there any online resources you would recommend as well?

      Thanks again for your advice,
