My name is Daphne, I was job hunting and seems as if I could not get a job interview, for jobs I am totally qualified to do. Just the same I was a little reluctant to go to "Still Serving Veterans" mostly because I did not understand what they really assist a veteran with. Well I finally needed some assistance trying to figure out what I was doing wrong....
My first appointment was 26 Jan 2016. And we went from there. The have a GREAT team, they assisted me with my resume, and ideas and different approaches for how to job hunt head on, and I finally got and interview.. It might not sound like much but that's a huge stone for me. I've been looking for work since July 2015. My goal was to check and search the internet daily and fill out at least 1 job application a day. Absolutely NO HITS...until I went to "Still Serving Veterans" From Jan 26, to 4 March 2016..... I finally got an interview.
Thank you so much to Still Serving Veterans for you assistance with all that you do for FREE to veterans actively trying to find employment. Keep up the GREAT work with that GREAT team. Daphne

I met an Advisor while at a Job Fair and they really try to help with and educate in the job search. And they still contact me from time to time! I Love what they are doing for Veterans and their families!

Love what they do to help veterans and soldiers. They have been very helpful through my job searching process. They have also been very supportive every step of the way. Love how they call an see how things are going. Also love how they give you information to help you along the way. Like sending me an email about an upcoming job fair. They do a wonderful job and I would recommend them to any veteran or solider I know looking for help.

Still Serving Veterans is not just a great name or organization. It is committed people helping, sacrificing and striving to assist veterans in finding employment The process was smooth and their continued resolve to follow through is superb. From the initial, first time encounter to the first person to person appointment to go over goals, producing a finish product (resume), information gathering for jobs and subsequent follow up, has been wonderful. The entire team of Kim Woods, Jim and Charles have been great in extending their knowledge and passion for helping others.

Still Serving Veterans gave me the tools I needed to hopefully land a good job and Veterans benefits. The day I called them, I was seen the next morning. Still Serving Veterans will do what they advertise, and it's all free!

I am in the process of transitioning and am confident because I have Still Serving Veterans and Joe Woods assisting me along the way. Very professional and helpful. Still Serving Veterans is there when I need them for questions anxious moments /questions such as resume building and building health records of which I otherwise would not have known, they arecovered there. Because of this service I'm less anxious regarding my separation process. I'm looking forward to continued positive experiences.

The name speaks for itself and says it all! This group of professionals will take the time out to point you in the right direction when searching for employment. Their follow up is unlike anything I've encountered which further lets you know that they really do care about finding the right job for you.

I have been unemployed for a substantial period of time. At about the 4 month point, I went to Still Serving Veterans and was immediately provided outstanding personal service. I get regular Emails for jobs and talk to them weekly. Although I still am seeking work, they have helped me immensely. My job history was of good paying jobs and many employers simply won't make an offer but Still Serving Veterans keeps me morivated. I wish to acknowledge two people in particular; Paulette Risher and Anthony Bush. They have both been exceptional! I believe in what this organization does and highly recommend them as a Top of the Line organization!
