Employment Advice, Revamped Resume Gets Veteran Going
Nadine Wicklander, who cleaned and tested underwater mines while serving in the Navy, admits she found job interviews difficult and her resume needed help. Local Veteran's Employer Representative Adrian Morado of California's Employment Development Department came to her rescue. He crafted Wicklander's resume toward civilian-friendly occupations, coached her, and helped her find job openings through social media. Morado, who is also a Navy veteran, said he works hard to "pay forward" the employment help he feels all veterans deserve for serving their country. Within two months, Wicklander accepted a job with a large retail company, and shortly after, a large bottling company offered her training to become a supervisor, which she accepted.
