Providing Career Independence for Returning Vets (as Featured on

I recently had another opportunity to “guest blog” about military job search tips and resources, this time for Puget Sound area veterans and Seattle-bound military experienced job seekers on “The Hire Ground”, as seen on – a Seattle Times company.  Read the post via permalink.  The Hire Ground offers valuable advice to job seekers of all locales and backgrounds.  I highly recommend referencing the blog for career search insights.
