Operation Job Search is the ultimate guide for US military veterans seeking employment after discharge. It provides information about the civilian workforce, rubrics for navigating one's career, and a list of essential resources to consult during the job search. Also included are sections dedicated specifically to suggestions and resources available to female veterans.

Weiss explains that hiring managers and human resources directors hire veterans who make the effort to build a professional relationship. He discusses the importance of leaving the house and meeting employers at venues such as job fairs, trade shows, office parks, and even Starbucks. Weiss offers practical instructions and crucial tips, such as:

Establish an operations center (home office) for job hunting
Don't be afraid to make cold calls
Dress appropriately for job interviews and practice communicating in civilian-speak, not military jargon
Target military-friendly companies that value the skills of returning military personnel

If you are a US military veteran searching for a job, Operation Job Search will guide you every step of the way from translating your skills into civilian-speak to negotiating your contract.
