Freelance Vets with Jay Sheehan


You going out and soliciting companies, saying hey, we can help you with their stabbing I'm sure there's a mix and then. Can you kind of walk the dog with us about? What it's like to land a contract with a company like that, and then where do you go to your fishing hole that you go to find labor or skilled labor or management type people and how you screen him? Match 'em up and ultimately. Closet on the other where you get, somebody hired or bring somebody in. Roger that yeah well. As you said it is a mix of going out and soliciting business getting the getting to hear that word, no a thousand times before year. Yes, once. So you build that Dick Skin, but I think we already had fixed skins being in the military, especially depending upon your Mos. We're yelled at a lot. So I think we kind of develop that understanding that at the end of the day just got to get the job done so. So yet. We would go out and sell a lot Because if you're not selling your dying in that industry, you know one one bad one bad job and you could lose twelve, you know. And that's that's one of the drawbacks of the industry is. Is that your commodity so to speak or actually putting the work? There are people it's not like buying a laptop putting on his desk and it works you know a person has. Their own process, you know they might not want to get up and go to work. So. They don't go to work and if they don't go to work, then you're not getting paid. You know so. There's all of that mixed into. It so with my companies. We always would try to place a veteran. I, in fact, I had an office in Jacksonville North Carolina right off the rear gate. So you know we would constantly try to recruit veterans and military spouses, because you get a different work ethic. No, we're used to get up early. We're used to going to work for doing. Our job is not always a lot of thanks in what we do you know, but you get up and you do it anyway. Because it's your job, you know so. From a standpoint of employer for us. We were employer. With a lot of employees so. We would always look for a veteran I. and that that really held tight for us. No matter how big or how busy got there was a veteran and they need a job. We would give them the opportunity to. Better themselves and get a position that might. Might otherwise change your life. You know I. Know a Lotta, guys and girls when they get out. They don't have the the past drawn out for that. That's one of the problems with transition. I think I don't know if I'm getting off track on yet. But no, not at all I would love to talk about. The transit led to hear your perspective on transition would've. Would have had one is. I I. Mean I think we've we've all been through. A lot of times. When you're transitioning. You just want to check the box. You know you're tired. You don't WanNa. Go through and sit that sitting in that class and be told how to write a resume you. Don't you just don't want to do it? And unfortunately it's It's something military provides us, and we don't always depending upon age I think. I think a lot of it has to do with age in. Where your head's at now when you're younger and you're getting out after like four four six years you're. You're thinking you're invincible. Will now see just? GonNa get out. Do whatever you WANNA do. I think that you get a career military person. And he or she has a different mindset as to what they would like to try to achieve. You know they've had a career. They're trying to move on. Kerryon, with hopefully family, or whatever their next step in their career passes so I think that. Age inexperienced play a lot of. Different roles during that transition And I think a lot of that transition programs.
