Resume Tips for Making the Transition

Transition Resume Tips from Military Resume WritersYou're leaving the service and are faced with the daunting task of developing your resume. No doubt your military career is studded with accomplishments, but even the most decorated veteran needs to figure out how to make the transition to a civilian position. Follow these tips to draft a high-impact resume that shows how your military experience is transferable to a civilian job.

Define Your Civilian Career Goals

You can't effectively market yourself for a civilian job if you don't have a clearly defined goal. Because so many service people have diverse backgrounds, they often make the mistake of creating resumes that are too general to be effective. Before writing your resume, do some soul searching, research occupations and pinpoint a specific career path. Your options are entering the private-sector, federal government, or working for a defense contractor. You can also prepare yourself for all three civilian employers.

We Create Resumes That Speaks your Value to Employers

Now that your objective is defined, you're ready to have your job-winning resume created. Our Master Federal Career Advisors and Master Military Resume Writers know just the right language to demonstrate your value to a civilian employer. Consider having one of the Master’s develop your resume and it could be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make to advance your career search.
