I recently had another opportunity to “guest blog” about military job search tips and resources, this time for Puget Sound area veterans and Seattle-bound military experienced job seekers on “The Hire Ground”, as seen on nwsource.com – a Seattle Times company. Read the post via permalink. The Hire Ground offers valuable advice to job seekers of all locales and backgrounds. I highly recommend referencing the blog for career search insights.
Here is an excerpt from the article:

But you may be thinking, “But I don’t have sales, manufacturing or field-service experience.” This may be true, but the fundamentals required for success in the military directly correspond to the fundamentals required in these fields.
