As Jim progressed through his employment search, he began reaching out to any veteran services that crossed his path.  Then, he found Corporate America Supports You (CASY) and began by taking a FREE virtual training entitled “How To Lock That Job - Interview Techniques That Work For You” with Training Manager, Co-Founder and Editor of the MSEJ, Amy Rossi.

“I took an online seminar on resume writing and interviewing, and they were both fantastic.  Sometimes they reinforced what I was doing, often times they helped me focus on what I needed to improve upon.”
