Being of Service to Those Who Have Served w/ Jim Sutton

One of the unfortunate challenges faced by those who have served as members of the armed forces is that once they have completed their service, it can be difficult figuring out how to translate that work experience in a way that is compelling to employers in technology.

In this episode of SoundNotes, you’ll learn how LeadingAgile’s Jim Sutton was able to offer assistance to a veteran who recently completed his time in the Air Force and was struggling to figure out how to present his work experience in a way that made it relevant to potential employers. By taking the time to talk through his experience in serving the country, Jim was able to help him reframe his accomplishments during job interviews.

If you know someone who has served and is struggling to find a gig in IT, or if you are in that situation yourself, what you’ll find in this podcast is a valuable case study explaining how to leverage experience in the service and present it in a compelling way.

Those who have served have sacrificed a great deal for the rest of us and we owe it to them to take the time to help them find a path to a rewarding career. This interview provides tips on how you can take a step towards repaying the debt we owe them.
