Demilitarizing Your Military Resume for a Civilian Career
by Adrienne Erin - Feb, 2015
You might be an 0311 — ground pounder — in the United States Marine Corps for eight years. Maybe you’re a Navy Corpsman, with more field experience than any hospital internship could have ever provided. Or perhaps you’re a Gunnery Sergeant, training new recruits from dawn to, well, dawn. Leaving the military can be as much of a culture shock as enlisting. But don’t worry; your military resume will transfer to a civilian car...

Joe Quits His Job: A Cautionary Tale of Transition
by Emily King - Apr, 2012
This is a true story. A career military officer – let’s call him Joe for simplicity’s sake – retires after 20 years of service with a valuable and highly marketable skill set. Joe receives several offers early in his job search. He accepts one based on his interest in the work, the small size of the company (that would allow him to grow with it), and salary among other factors. Two months into his employment Joe is happy with...

by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2012
Making a career change isn't easy. You need to showcase why you are qualified for the targeted job, even if your past experiences do not identically match the employer's requirements. Most employers are not familiar with military service, positions, jargon, or acronyms, so it can be even more challenging for veterans to make a strong case. What can job-seeking veterans do to help transition into civilian positions? Identif...

1. Write to the future. Resume writing is not about rehashing your past history and listing what you’ve done and where. Rather, resume writing is about writing to the future, to the job that you want or the career path that you wish to pursue. This is a critical consideration throughout every phase of writing your resume and conducting your job search. Clearly define your objectives, identify the skills and qualifications you’...
