I had recently graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Sciences with a concentration in Network Administration from the University of Arizona. I had applied for positions on my own, but wasn’t hearing back from the places I had applied to. When I connected with Linkages it opened a whole network of business connections. In about a month I landed a position in my field of study and I am enjoying the work I am able to do with the education I earned.

Why do Wounded Warriors get their own page?

Great question! You're special to employers. Certain employers are looking to connect with you because there are regulations/compliance around making strong efforts to recruit veterans and individuals with disabilities. And, guess what? You fit both categories.

Don't get us wrong, the reason all people get hired is because of what they can do - their abilities! However, if all things are equal in qualifications and experience your veteran status and disability could actually help land you the job! 

Linkages' job is to be the 'link' between job seekers and employers. We do this through job seekers creating a profile with us and applying to employer openings.
