I'm a military spouse and have used my military spouse equal opportunity status (which was an entire form to fill out) to help with giving my a better chance at landing jobs, AND I've spent $350 to have my resume rewritten for a specific job I knew with 100% confidence I could do and wasn't referred. I also wasn't referred for many other jobs after that. I have yet to get a government job. I've selected "Very experienced" in all questions. I haven't even been able to get a simple assistant job. I owned a magazine company and ran 3 businesses on my own with much success and I've gotten nothing other than a job interview with the Commisary (which I believed all my experience I was over qualified for), but they didn't hire me because of my religious beliefs and not being able to work in one of their departments, the meat department. I've had someone in HR look at my job application and approved it before the system at USA jobs didn't refer me. I've spoke to a few people about key words to use, which I've done and also was told I was perfectly qualified for the job, but couldn't get past the intense screening on USA jobs. I don't believe this system is equal at all. Opportunities are slim picking and the process is incredibly unfair. In the civilian world I would get picked up no problem, but I wanted to be a part the of the military community. I'm just incredibly disappointed. You can keep trying, but if you're really looking for an equal opportunity or know someone specifically in the position you're looking for, prepare to have your dreams shattered.
