117. #Hired: Be Ready When Opportunity Strikes

Show Notes | August 30, 2021 | Episode 117

This episode is sponsored by our military spouse employment partner Stay at Home Profit.  

Milspouse Victoria Strand applied for her dream job. After a month of not hearing back, she took a job with Instant Teams. On her first day of work, she got an email from the other company. They wanted to interview her. 

Victoria couldn’t let this opportunity pass her by. So, she poured over VirtForce’s resources, listening to podcast episodes and taking the free online course How to Ace Your Virtual Interview.

With a fresh understanding of how to impress in a virtual job interview, Victoria landed her dream job! 

Victoria realizes it’s not ideal to leave one job for another so quickly, but it happens. “You never know when opportunity is going to strike,” she says. Victoria had to follow her heart and do what was best for her life and career. It may not always be the best timing, but it all works out in the end.

Tune in to hear where Victoria is working now, and her advice for those who are still trying to land their ideal remote job.
