Operation Grateful Nation is a Beyond SOF hiring initiative that is available between now and Jan 1, 2021 with the purpose of moving as many of our candidates and under/unemployed veterans into as many jobs as possible before the Holiday Season.

Our goal is to get over 100 veterans hired by Thanksgiving and over 500 by Jan 1, 2021. (as of Nov 11, 2020 – 12 Vets onboarding)
We manage over 22,000 veteran profiles, most with security clearances and many are some of the most skilled and specialized Service Members in the World.

During the pandemic have you been growing or not growing (as in “depreciating”)? Take time the time to look at what your current “optics” are as compared to you during your prime “production” or “purpose” phase and ‘get back there.’ It was when you were at your best, and it was that way for several reasons.. One of which was very likely your ‘presence’. Think about setting the alarm 15 minutes earlier each day until you are back where you were. Haircut/Saloon, Shave/Nails.. again, this isn’t judging-it’s where you were right-wrong-indifferent.. I say that because society has changed. For better? Worse? Either way this gives you the baseline and a starting point of where YOU were at your peak. (Total invested time in yourself? 15 min a day until ready)
Take a news article, literature, or op-ed and record yourself reading aloud. Play it back. How would you rate yourself? Save that audio file. Do it again and again until you like what you hear. Let someone else listen to the last one-ask them what they think.. then let them listen to the first one. That will be both the metric and true confidence differentiator. Do this exercise occasionally. This is Conversational Optics and it is as, if not more important, than visual or non-verbal as it proves “Judge not a book by its cover” (Total time invested in yourself? 15 min a month)
What do you look like online? Ask a parent or guardian figure to look thru your social media.. then ask them if they would hire you. Listen to them as to why or why not.. they are likely the same age as your supervisor’s boss. Is your impulsive opinion on something after only reading the headline and not researching the source worth risking the first impression for how you would fit in the next organization you want to work for? (Total time invested in yourself? 15 min a quarter-90 days)
You get what you pay for.. meaning in this case, your time and your focus.. If you put together a resume with little interest, little research or critique, it shows. Hiring managers go through over a 1,000 resumes a year, they can smell a solid candidate, just from structure before they even get into the material. Find someone who you know and is, in your eyes, more successful (best if that person is in the field you are pursuing). Look at their resume. Ask why they built it that way. Most importantly, look at your resume against theirs and ask yourself ‘why’ yours does not look like theirs.. Write down why you think that is. Then go to the owner/mentor of the resume you chose and present your resume, their resume, and your notes. The information exchange that happens next will change your life: Outlook, Rationale, Growth.. You will learn with not just your resume, but in Life.. it’s not what to do.. It’s what successful people do NOT do or avoid.. (Total time invested in yourself? 2 hours a year)
If you want a normal interview, do the normal (online-what the internet suggests) prep. If you want to own the outcome of the interview, set up a challenge. For introverts, just outside your comfort zone.. for extroverts a full blown roast.. Organizationally, we do this already with our pre-interview sessions so that the candidate is in a quite place, good phone signal, no appointments right after to worry about, not in their car or travelling, suit and or tie, and a review of their screening answers to the min requirements. Those are the basics. Basics get you a passing grade, intrepidity gets you a reputation..
Preparation determines the outcome. How prepared? Simple: Do you feel prepared? If no, figure out what topic worries you and research/tackle it. If yes, ask what else have I not thought about and explore. Remember, there is no such thing as over-prepared.. just look at your insurance policies-there is one page for what is covered, 40 pages for what is NOT. (Total time to you, for you, by you? Avg 12 hours a year)
