Advice for Transitioning Veterans
5 Resume Writing Tips
- Re-write your skills and qualifications. When writing your skills and experiences, tailor the words and phrases to the position you are going after. Focus on the skills and training you received that you would use on the job and less on the daily mechanics and functions of your positions in the military.
- Explain Military Terms. The people looking at your resume are civilians and might not be familiar with any military acronyms or terms. Using too many military terms and acronyms may make it difficult for a civilian to read and understand.
- Display your accomplishments and education. The education you received from school, colleges, and other classes is very important and shows you have the knowledge to execute the job. Your accomplishments like awards, promotions, and other kudos show you have the ability to execute the job well.
- Choose a style that highlights your best skills and accomplishments. There are several different styles of resumes, including chronological, functional, and a combination of the two.
- Proofread, Proofread, Proofread! The first thing a prospective employer sees or knows about you is the resume we receive. A resume with errors can imply that the work you perform will be performed with errors as well.
