Veteran Airman Wins Amazon Echo For His Hire Our Heroes Story
From November 21st until December 5th 2017 Hire Our Heroes was running a contest for veterans to submit their story to win an Amazon Echo — and we have a winner!
Here is Seth’s winning story from military service to civilian career —
with the help of Hire Our Heroes (HOH)
“After serving in the active Air Force from 2005-2013 I chose to separate as an E-5 to finish my masters degree in security. I moved over to a cyber security focused career interest after learning about the job market and exciting challenges associated with the field.
I used the FedVTE resource from Hire Our Heroes to gain an understanding of cyber security. In December of 2015 I was hired by Accenture as an associate manager in security operations. I’ve been with Accenture since then and have volunteered at some local recruiting events to meet Accenture’s commitment to hire 5,000 veterans by 2020. I still serve one weekend a month as an Air National Guard member in Arizona.”
Congratulations to Seth, thank you for your service and for submitting your story to us!
In 2016 and 2017 with the help of its partners and supporters HOH was able to ensure that:
- 30,000+ veterans received free training in cyber security
- 2,000+ veterans trained in resume-writing and interviewing skills, LinkedIN and social media platforms, job-hunting expertise and home ownership
- 250 veterans were matched with Mentors
Please help us help veterans like Seth in the new year by donating to Hire Our Heroes
Thank You For Your Support!
