Military Dogs: Emily Schlesinger
It can seem like there are a number of risks involved in hiring veterans into a more conventional workforce: The culture is completely different and their highly specialized skill-set doesn´t seem to apply. Emily King, author of Field Tested: Recruiting, Managing, and Retaining Veterans, wants recruiters and HR professionals to not take military resumes so literally. Driving a tank may seem irrelevant to an office culture, but the skills, knowledge, and training that went in to learning how to use a very complicated and expensive piece of machinery can be extremely beneficial in any job. 1.

Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston return to their Ender´s Game prequel series with this first volume of an all-new trilogy about the Second Formic War in The Swarm. The first invasion of Earth was beaten back by a coalition of corporate and international military forces and the Chinese army. China has been devastated by the Formic´s initial efforts to eradicate Earth life forms and prepare the ground for their own settlement. The Scouring of China struck fear into the other nations of the planet; that fear blossomed into drastic action when scientists determined that the single ship that wreaked such damage was merely a scout ship. There is a mothership out beyond the solar system´s Kuiper Belt, and it´s heading into the system, unstoppable by any weapons that Earth can muster. Earth has been reorganized for defense. There is now a Hegemon, a planetary official responsible for keeping all the formerly warring nations in line. There´s a Polemarch, responsible for organizing all the military forces of the planet into the new International Fleet. But there is an enemy within, an enemy as old as human warfare: ambition and politics. Greed and self-interest. Will Bingwen, Mazer Rackam, Victor Delgado, and Lem Juke be able to divert those very human enemies in time to create a weapon that can effectively defend humanity in the inexorable Second Formic War?
