Veteran Success Story: Demetrius Bussey

U.S. Marine Corps, 12 years
Management Analyst
Department of Veterans Affairs
Washington, DC

Veteran Demetrius Bussey was unemployed for over nine months. He had filled out hundreds of applications but was unable to find a position that fit his skills and interests. When an acquaintance informed him of the VA for Vets website, Demetrius decided to check it out immediately.

After Demetrius created a VA for Vets account, he was assigned to Career Coach Diane Hart, who helped him modify his resume to better reflect his skills and experience. She also provided tips on searching for federal positions and interview techniques.

Within a few weeks, Demetrius was offered a position with the Department of Veterans Affairs as a Management Analyst. “Diane Hart was very helpful in the process and very knowledgeable,” Demetrius said. “I am forever indebted to the assistance of her and the VA staff.”
