“A few months back I read an article in the LA Times about a veteran in New York trying to find a job. He was turned down at several prestigious companies because he is a veteran and because the job market is in poor shape. This of course was very disheartening for me, as I was constantly looking for “the job”. I wanted a career in SOMETHING that had benefits for my family and I, as well as a competitive trade I could remain in hopefully until retirement. I’ve spent the last 3 1/2 years in commercial plumbing only to find myself out of work and struggling to make ends meet for my family.
One day while searching through jobs online, I found a link to a job website for veterans, V-Force. I applied for a position that was posted. Within a day I was contacted back by one of the employment specialists. He was very friendly, informative, and diligent. He sent my resume to an international company he recommended. A couple days later I received a call from the company for an interview. I was hired on the spot!
I have now been with this company for 10 weeks and am quickly learning a trade I had no experience in. I have full benefits, full time employment, and the pleasure of working next to fellow veterans. My family and I are back on track and so very grateful for this career. I know how it feels to think there is no break coming in regards to the job industry for a veteran. V-Force gave me my break. Try them.”
