Military to Civilian Resume Sample
For transitioning military personnel, whether enlisted or officer, a carefully written resume is essential to future job success. Regardless of rank, every soldier, sailor and marine acquires skills in the military that are highly desirable to civilian companies and corporations. However, the most common problem encountered by any experienced and certified resume writer is how exactly to translate military skills and experience in a manner that a civilian hiring manager can understand. If you’re just now ETS’ing from the military, you may be encountering that exact same problem- civilians just don’t understand what’s involved with being in the military nor the skills developed while in. Theresa came to me with this problem. Although her 25 years of service in the U.S. Navy decorated her with proven leadership skills, managing both personnel and budgets, she found it difficult to get her foot in the door of civilian companies looking for someone exactly like her. After we discussed her ideal position and career goals, we were able to streamline her Military to Civilian resume in a manner that presented her in a way that civilian companies could understand. With her new resume, she was hired within three weeks at a job she’s later described to me as her dream job. Are you transitioning out of the military and need assistance in writing your resume?
