Find Work Anytime: Funny Thanksgiving Jobs

Posted on

 

 

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble! It’s that time of year again to get out the cookbooks, family recipes, and make a nice thanksgiving feast for the family. You bought your turkey and all the fixings yet and ate your heart out.  Have you ever wondered who prepares the food that we purchase each holiday or the types of jobs people take around Thanksgiving.

Some men and women actually hunt for their family bird and others just help process and package it at different food companies. Many men and women make pies from scratch while others go the easy route and purchase them from their local bakery. If you are looking for a fun job to help contribute to putting food on everyone’s table.

Veterans Day Edition – Serving those who Serve

Posted on Updated on

 

This picture went viral back in August. You may have seen it. It was a picture of a lone Sentinel, “walking the mat” and standing guard over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the midst of Hurricane Irene. Since July 1, 1937, through every type of weather, there has been a Sentinel from the 3rd U.S. INF Regiment – The Old Guard guarding the Unknown Soldier Tomb, every minute of every hour of every day. They consider it an honor to stand their watch, regardless of the weather the Sentinels never budge. And they never allow any feeling of cold or heat to be seen by anyone. It is an act of service, in honor and respect for the unknown soldiers buried in the Tomb and for everything they have sacrificed. We owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who have stood in front of this nation and fought to protect and defend the freedoms and liberties that we so easily take for granted.

For over 235 years, courageous men and women have stood up for our individual rights to disagree with our government, peacefully protest, bear arms, and the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness at great personal sacrifice to themselves and their families. But, who stands behind the soldier? Who supports the men and women who have given so much to protect and defend this country? In a sense, we all do – or should be. Certainly, the family – the parents, spouses, siblings, and children who are left behind to fill in the blanks and face, each day, with the threat of losing a piece of their family’s foundation. Certainly the friends, acquaintances, and neighbors who share a meal, mow the lawn or care for a beloved pet of a deployed service man or woman.

This week’s edition of Find Work Friday Veterans Day Edition focuses on careers which support and serve our nation’s heroes. As we enter our 11th year of conflict, the toll on the lives and families of our service men and women has been significant. This nation and our military need men and women in civilian and public sector jobs who can stand behind our military and their families as the one percent of our population soldiers the burden of 10 years of war in two countries. Companies, businesses and organizations have committed to serving our military, recognizing the challenges of our military as they transition from military to civilian life, assist with financial planning, family counseling, career assistance, physical therapy, and emotional support. It may be a matter of opinion, but to me, no paycheck is greater earned than one that is earned by supporting the men and women who have served this country. Except, of course, the one earned by the serviceman (or woman) himself.

Find Work Wednesday: Veteran Career Interests after Serving

Posted on Updated on

November 11th is Veteran’s Day and in honor of all of those who have served we will be dedicating all Find Work Wednesdays in November to Veteran’s Jobs.

If most troops are like mine, they have a steady paycheck, a job they love, and no immediate plans to get out, so they have not given much thought to what they will be doing after they get out. When probed they probably say “I will worry about it when the time comes”. In this economy, you need a plan. First, think of what you want to do. Once you have an idea you can research job requirements needed, experience, education, and certifications. Veterans need know local resources to choose from to get help, who to contact, and how to use their military experience to add skills to their resume to achieve career goals in the civilian world.

A common occupation area chosen by Veterans is law enforcement, because it is similar to their military training, duties, etc. Some specific job titles veterans look at are: private contractors, physical fitness trainers, security officers, overseas contractors, recruiters, weapons experts, etc.
