Have my class A CDL with both military and civilian experience driving flatbed trailers. Trying to find a trucking job but it is hard locally because I do not have a lot of "over the road" experience.

Techniques for Conducting an Effective and Efficient Job Search

Please join Jay Fusaro, Founder of Eureka Professional Services, an interview coach he provides his clients with the skills and techniques necessary to successfully conduct an efficient and effective job search.  
Jay is a CPA in the state of Texas as well as a Certified SMU Business Coach.  He was Vice President of Financial Planning for Alliance Data during their successful IPO.  He has both built and led high performing teams throughout his career and has led team up to 47 spread across 3 counties.
 
He is in the process of writing a book titled “Interviewing From The Other Side of The Desk” that should be available later this year.  He has been a guest speaker at the Texas Society of CPA’s Expo Conferences in Houston, San Antonio and Arlington.

A brief history of my company:

Eureka Professional Services (EPS) was started in October of 2012.  EPS teaches its clients the skills and techniques to conduct an efficient and effective job search. To date, over 45 clients have landed new positions.  EPS's average interview success rate is 63% compared with an industry average of 25%.  Our client mix is approximately 37% employed, 37% in transition and 26% recent graduates.  Additionally, several clients have received offers for more than they expected and many have received multiple offers.  EPS charges a flat fee and stays with its clients until they land a new opportunity.  As part of its continued effort to give back to the community, EPS conducts seminars at local churches, business organizations, non profits dedicated to women's causes as well as the Dallas Veterans Administration.

DESCRIPTION:  
Searching for and getting hired into a really great job is….well, it’s a job in itself!  There are many new skills to learn and many resources to investigate and access.  It can be overwhelming.  Wouldn’t it be great to have an experienced partner guiding you through the job search process?  You need an online career mentor!  In this hangout you’ll learn how to access an online career mentor to help you in your job search or career building efforts through a unique web-based program called the Veteran eMentor Program.

The Veteran eMentor Program is a partnership with the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring our Heroes initiative. The program’s goal is to help veterans find great jobs and build their careers with the help of volunteer career mentors who work in the veteran’s target career field.  Mentors may be veterans themselves but veteran status is not a requirement.  Veteran protégés select a mentor on the Veteran eMentor website and then work together to achieve the veteran’s career goals.  Veteran protégés can select mentors to work with on any personal or professional challenge they face…not just on job and career.  Come learn how you can benefit from having a mentor in Veteran eMentor!
