Review

Praise for Networking for Veterans "Networking for Veterans serves as an effective guide to help veterans make strong first impressions, build those initial connections into professional relationships, and finally turn interviews into job offers. This book is a great tool to prepare for and take advantage of programs, like Hiring Our Heroes, and hundreds of others around the country that are making a concerted effort to connect veterans with meaningful employment."
Kevin Schmiegel, Executive Director
Hiring Our Heroes, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
"One of the major barriers veterans face when reentering the work force is an understanding of how to find their new path through networking. As a veteran, it took me several years to realize the importance of finding a trusted network of advisors and mentors. Networking for Veterans teaches us how to find our paths after military service and translate past experiences into successful professional careers."
Derek Blumke, Co-Founder
Student Veterans of America "This is a guidebook with routes toward future success at home for transitioning military personnel. Networking for Veterans provides invaluable insight to getting connected with civilian culture and the workforce. Every college career center in the nation should have this resource."

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Resource for Veterans and Educators Alike! 4 Dec. 2012
By Kristine L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Networking for Veterans is a well-organized guide for transitioning into the civilian workforce. It takes our transitioning military personnel through a professional journey, teaching them to capitalize on their strengths, identify their weaknesses, and accept their new reality. The book helps veterans recognize and utilize various channels and resources for successful networking as they take the corporate world by storm! Abrams, Faulkner, and Nierenberg do a wonderful job of illustrating a detailed strategy for this process along the way, rather than just simply stating the obvious. The real life testimonies add a nice personal touch as well.

As a Staff Advisor at a local university for an SVA chapter, I recommend this book to all of our student veterans. I have also recommended it to staff and faculty members to gain a better understanding of what our veterans go through as they transition back into the civilian workforce. An absolute must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars The book you should have been provided in TAP/ACAP 3 Jan. 2013
By John Donovan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an absolute must have for anyone leaving the military from junior Enlisted or NCOs to JOs and Career Officers. Having started my transition in 2011 and getting my DD214 in January of 2012, this is the book that I could have used back then. This book touches on so many of the lessons I had to learn the hard way, through trial and error, making mistakes, and missing opportunities. It is written on a level that every military service member can understand and uses appropriate analogies to show you how to apply the confidence you have as soldier/sailor/airman/marine to overcome any apprehension you might have about growing your professional network. If you are at a loss as to what you want to do after you leave the military but you still have the passion to serve your country and your fellow man then you have an obligation to pursue the career that will allow you to reach your potential. The best way to find out more about those career possibilities that exist outside of the military is to reach out to those who have gone before you, your fellow veterans in the private or government sectors who are willing to help. By serving you already belong to the strongest and most robust network in the world...U.S military veterans. This book will guide you through the steps to take advantage of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leading the Way! 27 Nov. 2012
By Deniz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a recently transitioned veteran or a service member who is about to get out, and you're wondering where to start... Stop! Get this book before you proceed any further as it will undoubtedly save you from the unnecessary heartache and pain associated with making the leap from active duty military service to professional civilian life. Without the plan of action and rock solid foundation that this book lays out, you may very well find yourself later on down the road looking back from a place you had never imagined, wondering why it all had to be so hard. This isn't meant to scare you, but rather to tell it like it is. Do yourself a favor then -- before it's too late, and take advantage of the opportunity in front of your eyes.

Indeed, Networking for Veterans ought to be mandatory reading for all military personal in their last year of service -- particularly those that plan on going to college and taking advantage of their amazing Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. I highly recommend this book and support the author 100% with the message he is trying to convey. This is a man that has been there and truly cares.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for small business owners! 24 Nov. 2012
By Jack, Small Business owner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Networking for Veterans is a great resource for transitioning veterans in this day and age. It clearly and simply instructs and assists veterans to be able to take advantage of utilizing the tools of today's technology to assist them in finding their way in a challenging job market at a time when veterans need it most. This book also helps connect the dots for small business owners everywhere and can assist in helping small business owners find qualified and quality employees to help businesses grow. In my opinion the release of this book coincides with perfect timing to assist at a time when America needs it most. A must have!
