Craig Pleasant, Veterans Services coordinator at ACTC, serves as middleman between ACTC and the VA.

“Military veterans are disciplined, come from diverse backgrounds and are leaders,” Pleasant said. “They have great skills and experience to offer any company. However, they need assistance in translating their military experience into language that will be understood by human resource specialists. It is recommended that veterans practice presenting themselves in interviews and get assistance writing a resume that truly reflects all they have to offer.”
