Veteran leverages CareerForce and LinkedIn to land a great job
Monday, November 11, 2019
Laura, a U.S. military veteran, contacted CareerForce in St. Paul for assistance when she unexpectedly was forced to resign from a position she had only been at for 2 ½ months. There, Laura met with Andrea Dunn, a Disabled Veterans Outreach Program Representative, who helped Laura in identifying promising job leads, refreshing her resume and leveraging other job search resources.
Among those resources was a free trial upgrade on LinkedIn, where Laura connected with a recruiter. The recruiter urged her to apply for a position, Laura landed an interview, and a few days later she was offered a great job within her career field. Now, Laura is making $5 hour more than her previous job.
