3 Key Points:
As a veteran during a pandemic, it is best to be as professional as possible. Be yourself and make yourself available, and then let the job market know you're available.
Go outside of your shell to the massive digital world, reach out, and take advantage of social media platforms as a networking tool to promote yourself.
With the pandemic going on, look at that checklist of what you can and can't do, identify the things you like doing, and then find different ways to enhance your main interest/passion.
“What an exciting time to be a veteran during the pandemic because you already know what it feels like to hear that general quarters alarm. As a veteran, we are well prepared, so what a veteran can do is just be themselves and be available to the job market.”-Vincent Wainwright
“The danger in going out in this massive and digital world is that people are going inside their shells instead of reaching out. ”-Vincent Wainwright
“You don't have to jump fully in and appease everybody, do it professionally. Go on LinkedIn, put out a couple of your interests, put yourself out there and then find like-minded people.”-Vincent Wainwright
