Related: 10 Helpful Job Search Resources For Veterans When I first got started on my job search, it was overwhelming on its good days. I didn't know how to write a resume, I had no idea what good interviewing skills looked like, and I was made painfully aware of just how little I knew about the private sector on the whole.
