Throughout the job search process I encountered plenty of dead ends and disappointments. My job search was not easy. But, in the end, with a gigantic emphasis on networking and a tremendously positive, aggressively confident attitude, I was able to land my dream job. GPVN helped me to hone skills I already had; they truly brought out my best. My success is directly attributable to their enthusiasm and proven method of finding veterans permanent employment. – Pete B
