Employment Transition & Resume Writing Services For Veterans
As a veteran transitioning out of military service, you have probably asked yourself one question over and over.
Fortunately, the job market is clamoring for the specialized skills, leadership experience and work ethic you have accumulated over your military career. In fact, according to the US Department of Labor, the veteran unemployment rate in 2017 was just 3.8 percent, the lowest in over a decade.
Your challenge is not to enter the job market, it is to help potential employers see how your military career translates to the civilian workforce.
Writing the Perfect Resume
Many HR professionals will tell you that the perfect resume highlights your knowledge, skills, and abilities in an easy-to-skim format.
It should have lots of active verbs when describing your past accomplishments.
It should only use technical jargon if it is specific to the job you are applying for.
Your resume should also be targeted at your desired industry.
If you are applying for a federal job, your resume should reflect federal job requirements. Likewise, government contractors and corporations look for dramatically different keywords and experiences on your resume than someone hiring from a federal agency.
Your resume should also include education, certifications, awards, and memberships in professional organizations but in a way that a civilian hiring manager can appreciate.
Seems simple, right?
- But how do you translate technical, military-specific information into something the civilian world can appreciate?
- Which active verbs trigger the interest of HR managers, resume scanning apps and administrative assistants?
- Which format should you use when describing your military career?
- How do you tailor your resume to its intended audience?
