Illinois, November 2023
“The biggest challenge that I faced when separating from the Army was to determine what type of jobs I would be qualified for. I went to school to help me find something that better fit my personality.
While I attended school to determine my next career path, I also received assistance from my Employment Transition Manager (ETM), Kristal Watts, at OJRV. Kristal has been instrumental in helping with my resume, and I now feel more confident about applying for valuable positions. In addition to the support I received from my ETM, I took the professional value proposition statement course through OJRV. The instructor was amazing and gave me great pointers on updating my ability to sell myself to prospective companies.
I was very impressed with the help received. My ETM has answered all my calls and questions while also being uplifting and encouraging. I feel good about where my future is headed with my new employment as a senior technician/requisitioner with Panduit Corporation thanks to the wonderful support and help I have received from OJRV.
Thanks to OJRV and the Call of Duty Endowment, I am learning more skills and staying up to date with my job searches and technology skills. I am thankful that this organization exists to help veterans like me.”
