Are you a Veteran looking to land a Federal Job? Did you know you may have a preference in being hired over all non-Veteran applicants? There is an ocean of information out there on the federal hiring process. Knowing and understanding the preference eligibilities that will float your name to the top of the Certificate/Referral list thereby being the first name a Selecting Official/Hiring Manager looks at, is the most important part of the hiring process for a Veteran. This is a small but extremely important piece of application puzzle. Your name at the top of the competitive certificate/referral list guarantees you must be considered before all non-preference eligible candidates when a Hiring Manager is trying to fill a position. This book will show you how to secure the Veterans´ Preference eligibilities you have earned and rightly deserve. Whether you are about to be released from active duty, retired Military, or you have been out for a while, this book will help guide you through the Veterans´ Preference eligibilities piece of the application process. This is information especially helpful if you separated from the Military a while ago. I will discuss the federal hiring process, the important parts of your DD214, and I will walk you through the section of USA Jobs where Veterans´ Preference is claimed. The reason you should read this book is simple. Having all this information in one place and explaining it in terms that are easy to understand, will be a tremendous advantage to you when applying to federal jobs. You having that advantage is what gives this book its value. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelly Rhodes. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/031115/bk_acx0_031115_sample.mp3.

Although revered in history for their civilization and culture, the Greeks were always in a constant state of warfare amongst themselves. With the likes of Athens, Sparta, and Thebes asserting dominance over the Ionian Peninsula, none of the other city-states could amass an army strong enough to challenge their superiority in the area, much less take on all challengers and invade Persia. However, none of these other city-states had a ruler named Alexander. With his fierce tenacity, unrivaled ruthlessness to his enemies, superior tactical understanding, and his compassion and charisma for his soldiers, Alexander III of Macedonia has carved out a niche in history as one of the greatest generals to ever step onto a battlefield. His ability to react to what his opponents did and his willingness to surrender favorable conditions in exchange for a better opportunity to strike has set him apart from every other general or military leader in the history of the world. From birth and through his early years, tutored by Aristotle at the will of his father, also a successful commander, Phillip II, Alexander was molded to become the greatest leader the Greeks had ever known. Through the personal training from his father in the art of commanding an army, Alexander proved at every battle that he was far superior to any other general of the time, and quite possibly, the greatest military leader of all time. 1.
