#5 - 5 Ways to Demonstrate Your Value During Your Job Search

One of the most important things you can do during your job search is knowing how to clearly show a Hiring Manager what value you'll bring to their organization. A Hiring Manager's goal is to make sure they are hiring top performers who will succeed in the position, and you can make the decision easier by demonstrating why you are the most qualified person for the job throughout each stage of the process. Amy West, Navy Veteran and Orion Recruiter, joins the show to discuss how to show a prospective employer your value through a carefully crafted resume and interview preparation.

#6 - Building a Business that Works for You

Ben Burt, Army Veteran, knew very little about franchise ownership when he transitioned out of the military. He considered a career in the medical field based on his military background, but quickly realized that his top priority was finding a career that would allow him the flexibility to spend more time with his family - which is what led him to become a franchise owner.

Fibrenew specializes in the repair, restoration, and renewal of leather, plastic, vinyl, fabric, and upholstery. As a franchise owner, Ben gets to make his own schedule and work with customers to repair everything from medical furniture to boat and aircraft interiors. In this episode, Ben discusses his rewarding journey as a franchise owner and why franchise ownership is a great career for veterans.
