P.S.A.

While I’m logged in here, I’d like to blatantly promote a project I worked on recently that I think is cool:

Heroes Get Hired book cover

Heroes Get Hired by Michelle Tillis Lederman

It’s a job-interview guide for military veterans and their partners, and though I didn’t read every word while I was working on it (I designed and coded the e-books and designed and typeset the print edition (not the covers)), I got the impression that it’s practical and well thought-out.

And it’s free to download in lots of formats (there are versions with video and versions without), or to view on the Web. Free, FREE, FREE!

So if you are a veteran (thank you!), please have a look; if you know some, pass it along.

And if you see any typos or formatting errors, drop me a note. I can fix those!

    Holy crap, India, I just skimmed the pdf and it looks great! Not bad for your first time. You should do this for a living.

    Seriously, it’s cool to be able to apply your skills to a project that has so much value.

    I downloaded an e-book, and it works real good.

    Plus, there’s some sensible advice in there even if you’re not a vet.

    Seriously. The early chapter titled “Stop Playing Mind Games!” includes wisdom applicable not solely to insecure vets. It addresses traps into which even the most confident and experienced civilian job-seekers fall.

    And you can download the whole book as an e-book (or PDF) or read it on the Web for FREE. Plus: Our India designed and coded the e-book versions. So you know they’re right.

    Congrats, India! Ten-Hut! In your pants.
