A while back I was approached by Webucator and asked if I could do a post about the importance of getting a solid education. They also wanted me to provide information for veterans to use should they decide to enroll in their programs. Now I feel like I must say that they are not paying me to say anything and I am doing this of my own free will. When I got out I tried to find a job and it didn’t work. Luckily I had the GI bill, which offered some money, and my husband was still in. I took advantage of that and went to school. I earned my degree and with that degree I was able to get a job. The school that I went to had online degrees which worked out well for me because I didn’t have to transfer schools every time my husband got a new duty station. This is similar to what Webucator offers. They have programs that you can do online as a class or on your own. They offer training courses on web design and security as well as management. It’s at least worth a look if you’re struggling to find your place in the civilian world. The person who contacted me also informed me that they also will help you create your resume which we all know is crucial for getting an interview. I applied for jobs for two years with no success while I was in school. Then I tweaked my resume to fit my new skills and to make it stand out. Three months later I had two interviews which turned into a position. If you are not a vet, I would still recommend checking these people out, sometimes we all have to go off into a new direction to make our lives better. For my fellow vets and their families, if you decided that Webucator is something for you then sign up for the self paced courses and enter the promo code VETERAN. This will allow you to take the courses for FREE!
Times are tough and any little bit that you can do to put yourself ahead of the game is at least worth a going over. And to the rest of you who are not veterans, should you come across one who is struggling to find a job could you let them know. I would appreciate it and I know that they would as well. Take care everybody.
