For some military personnel, it has been years since he or she had to interview for a job. That’s why there is a need for our heroes to have a resource that will help them update their job interviewing skills.
Michelle Tillis Lederman is a communication expert who authored, Heroes Get Hired: How to Use Your Military Experience to Master the Interview, FREE to military personnel and their families at HeroesGetHired.com.This project was sponsored by Citi and published by NBC Publishing. I accidently said during the intro that it was NBC Universal (please forgive me!) It is a detailed and practical read that can be applied immediately to his or her job search strategy.
Many veterans are challenged with how to translate his or her unique military experience to civilian careers. Michelle not only walks through many of the challenges veterans face, but also how to communicate value. From everything from simplifying titles and military acronyms to handshakes and eye-contact this book articulates ways that each vet can demonstrate a compelling unique selling proposition to a potential employer. Michelle can be reached either through her website michelletillislederman.com or her Facebook page.
In a related note, I attempted to record a video call that ended up an audio call. You may hear several references to seeing rather than just hearing. I accidentally referred to Michelle as a “What you see on the screen…” rather than a “Who.” I was so excited about the visual we had, I lost my mind for a second.
Please enjoy our conversation.
