On November 9th, 2015, Paul Mitchell teamed up with Orly and Makeovers That Matter to provide makeovers and job interview advice to female veterans. John Paul DeJoria spoke to the veterans about his inspiring journey and how he transformed his life for the better. DeJoria, who has a personal connection to veterans since he is a navy veteran, explained how he went from being homeless to working hard to become a successful businessman. He offered the veterans insightful tips for applying for jobs and interviewing to help them as they rejoin the work force.
Five Job Interview Tips for Veterans from John Paul DeJoria:
1. Be prepared for rejection.
2. Let employers know that you follow orders well and can follow through.
3. Look the employers in the eye when you meet them.
4. Stand up straight and show confidence with your presence.
5. No matter how many interviews you have been on, act just as enthusiastic about the job as you did on the first one.
