As a Supply Officer in the Navy, I gained an excellent background in engaging companies that I use in my position as a Sales Manager at Siemens Energy. Supply chain management is an obvious parallel, but the best thing about my military experience is the leadership background. It gave me the flexibility in the job search and did not pigeon hole me.
Mike Wood was engaging and responsive. And those are two of the most important attributes during a job search, because you never want to feel left in the dark. He addressed my needs and met my specific requirements.
If you are an assertive, hard working individual who can engage people, then you are capable of being very successful. I would encourage everyone to do their homework on every part of the hiring process. Always work to strengthen your value to potential employers. Be honest with people in regards to your job search and your legitimate interest in opportunities. Most importantly, never close any door.
