  1. My fellow Veterans, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on my troubles as a U.S. Marine Veteran post my discharge this last November… I was mislead into believing that, just because I am a Veteran, there were tons of Veteran Jobs just “waiting for me” when I was released from active duty. Just a little bit about me. I was honorably discharged last November 2011 with 8 years of active military service under my belt. I specialized in Law Enforcement as a Military Policeman with combat and non-combat experience and on top of that, military intelligence, operating as a language specialist. Now, looking in from the outside, I would say that is pretty good resume materials that would land me an awesome veteran job. Well truth is, in a dieing economy it is not enough… I found myself working a job in customer service of all things, because there was just nothing available in my area where I now currently reside that was looking for my special, tangible skills. But, like anyone else, I still needed to pay my bills even though I was now only making half of the amount of money I made in service, and I was a Sergeant. And I didn’t find that job on any Veteran Jobs website. Veteran Jobs..Not Guaranteed Needless to say, I needed something else because truth is, you will not get hired “just because you are veteran”. Don’t get me wrong, there are tons of companies out there that are “looking” to hire veterans. Most high paying ones require that you spend time overseas in another God forsaken country. I'm not willing to do that again. If you have any advice for me, please feel free to respond. Your feedback is much appreciated.
