Yes, Ma'am! No, Sir! Why do you have to be SO Formal?

Veterans can be accused of speaking too formally during interview situations when they default to calling recruiters "Sir" or "Ma'am". Not to worry, this is old military training and a habit that can be broken, it is not a reflection on the vets' inability to flex to corporate culture - sometimes they just aren't sure what else to call you in order to show you the proper respect they believe your position merits. Give them a little guidance and watch them open up! 

Watch my video for more insight to this common challenge.
