Friends of mine who are not veterans or served in the military have not had a problem getting a job at the VA. They have helped me and I have filled all the necessary paperwork and still nothing. It's very disappointing that I cannot be the one to treat veterans with respect. I go there and I see how these Veterans are treated. It's disappointing and sometimes even when I go I get treated badly.
Keep in mind that any type of negativity is searched for during the vetting process. If you have made any comments similar to this one on Facebook or any other social network, this could have something to do with a no go on getting in. It is possible to clean that stuff up and try and again(that is saying there is some). I would suggest Hire Heroes USA, they offer free assistance in matching a resume to a VA application. Thanks for your service and God Bless.
I am a resume writer and career coach who has helped may folks get into the VA. I would be pleased to look at your resume along with a job announcement to see if I could help you further. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with this information.
