NYC, New York Harbor, May 27, 2010. The USS Iwo Jima and 3,000 Navy and Marines sailed into NY to celebrate Fleet Week and Memorial Day. Kathryn Troutman thanked all of the military personnel for their service to our country! She autographed first-edition copies of the Military to Federal Career Guide, 2nd Edition to military personnel, who might sometime in the near future separate or retire from the military and begin another career in public service – as a Civil Servant this time. President Obama has initiated a significant Federal Employment program for Veterans. This book will help veterans compete and qualify for federal jobs. Photos by Zoey Troutman.
We were invited by Crew Chiefs of the CH53 Super Stallion Helicopter to come and tour the helicopter — and bring our books too! The Crew Chiefs on the Iwo Jima were fascinated with the sample Crew Chef resume and the possible career they can begin if and when they separate or retire someday. These Crew Chiefs were very happy in their current military careers, so, the book was for future planning or friends who were considering a separation.
Kathryn Troutman, Zonette Troutman and Kim Schmitt walked down to the Harbor after a busy day at the Book Expo of America to climbed aboard the CH53 for parachute lessons. From the looks of our faces, it seems like we were going to take off any second.
The Military to Federal Career Guide, 2nd edition (pre-pub copies available now) features as the first sample, a federal resume for a CH-53 Helicopter Crew Chief / Pilot who flew 60 missions in Iraq. We are very proud of his service and success with his missions. He has just finished his college degree cum laude with the GI Bill, and is now in the Maryland National Guard, and pursing a career as a Civil Servant as well. FREE pub-publication copies of the book are available for preview for a limited time. Write to Kathryn@resume-place.com. Available from our website and amazon very soon – this week!
