I am an Active Duty Sergeant in the United Stated Marine Corps seeking any available help in finding employment in the high desert ( Inland Empire Area ) of Southern California. I am a Systems Administrator with 4 years experience in Windows Server Administration & VMware virtualization. I am a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate in Server 2012 currently working on my CompTia Sec +. Any help at all is greatly appreciated!
I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE SOME FEEDBACK ON MY CURRENT RESUME IF ANYONE COULD BE SO KIND AS TOO LOOK OVER IT FOR ME. PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
I would be glad to review it.
You should have a website with your resume posted. Maybe your next step is to create one if you have not one yet.
Dear Sergeant Sauceda:
I would be happy to review your resume and cover letter. One of my specialties is helping Active Duty and Veteran folks transition to civilian employment, so I'm glad to help.
Thank you very much for your service. I would be happy to review your resume.
Hi Maclovio, as you work through finalizing your resume with these very capable advisors, please make sure that you are creating a strategy for your job search. Clearly having a great resume is an important part of it, but sending out resumes without a strategy of how you will connect and interest the employer can prove frustrating. Targeting companies with a point of view on why they should hire you, creating a network of connectors, using LinkedIn etc. all become part of an overall strategy that yields results. These advisors can all help you and I could be of assistance as well if needed. Good Luck to you and thank you for your service.
Best Regards, Mike
Be happy to review your resume. You can send to my email at your convenience.

You can search for jobs in the high desert at www.militaryhire.com. Its free for veterans and is veteran only oriented.
Hi Maclovio - Per previous replies - think of your job search as a process:
1) find targeted jobs and job descriptions you're interested in
2) cater resume and linkedin profile towards those jobs - e.g. keywords, skills and experience in your resume and profile that sell you in that space
3) network, reach out for informational interviews, go to meet ups, find recruiters, etc
4) prepare for phone screens and interviews by practicing questions - know who you are personally and professionally, how you can contribute to the organization and reasons why they should hire you
5) when the call comes in - research the company, prepare intelligent questions and act professional (e.g. show up on time, dress professionally, etc which I know shouldn't be a problem)
So, happy to review your resume and provide guidance on the other "steps" - feel free to message me.
