Success Statements

Kevin F.

Indiana, December 2023

“The biggest challenges range from being able to project my capabilities and experience to being understood by a civilian company. I have had a great career in the military, but the experience did not translate with equal value. For example, I had over a dozen years of experience in project management, but companies did not give me the value of experience.

The next biggest challenge was the hiring process. The application process, resume writing, interviewing (virtual and in-person) process, luncheon rules, etc., were a massive learning experience.

Lastly, I was challenged to keep a positive attitude. I went from being a leader of leaders to being a candidate with undervalued experience. Mind you, I have an MBA, PMP certification, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification, and more, so I was humbled by the process.

Operation: Job Ready Veterans (OJRV) helped me project my capabilities and experience to be understood by a civilian company. Also, OJRV provided me with knowledge and training on the application process, resume writing, interviewing (virtual and in-person) process, luncheon rules, etc., which were massive learning experiences. OJRV even provided me with supportive services to help with my interview success.

The best help I received from OJRV was a support group of individuals believing in me. OJRV was present through the roller coaster of my transition. My Employment Transition Manager, Anna Kennelly, and the team lifted me on days I was down and cheered my good news.

The result of the assistance from OJRV was landing a lucrative, prestigious position with Anova as a construction project manager, representing the life science industry owners with the construction of new facilities ranging in value from $200 million to $500 million.

OJRV became like family, supporting me and keeping my chin up when life looked bleak.”
