How to Find the Right Job Quickly
The military mind set and the civilian mind set are not compatible. They are two different worlds. A career in the military is not the same at all as pursuing a career in the civilian world. Plus, the benefits, rewards and opportunities for advancement are not comparable. Finding the right veteran to take a position at a company involves more that fitting a person with the proper qualifications and experience with a job he or she can do. There are several other critical factors to consider and evaluate. – This is the purpose of HirePatriots’ one-of-a-kind, innovative Military Veteran Career Transition Program or MVCTP. This comprehensive program is the brainchild of Marine Mustang, Cesar Nader. A “Mustang” is an officer that began as a Private and then worked himself up through the ranks to become an officer. Cesar spent 10 years as an enlisted Marine. He served two combat tours; and, he became a Gunnery Sergeant before being commissioned as Marine 2nd Lieutenant, Logistic…

What makes us strong and resilient to decay and destruction? What must be done to preserve us and to provide safety and security and stability for generations to come? Respect for national institutions, traditions, elected authorities, law enforcement and US military veterans are all crucial to the perpetration of a Democracy and to our nation America in particular. Like all humans, these man-made societal systems are flawed. But that by no means permits us to disregard or to disrespect their essential value to our perpetuity as a sovereign people. Our obligation is to always be vigilant and to repair the breaches to these walls of protection that are the bulwarks of any nation that endures. And that is the overriding theme and purpose of the ‘An American Crisis: The preservation and security of America. Whether y…
