Military experience is an asset, and should be treated with confidence and pride. Life in
the armed forces hones skills such as loyalty, teamwork, leadership, and a focus on objectives - all positive
attributes that are in demand in civilian work settings. The trouble is, it's sometimes hard to translate
those positive attributes into a language that civilian employers can understand and apply to current job
Specialists in military transition resumes address those difficulties head-on. They work to
define your goals and craft a resume that demilitarizes your job titles, duties and accomplishments to appeal to
a non-military audience, identifying and highlighting those details that underpin your qualifications and
bridge your value onto the civilian marketplace.
It's not always easy; a military transition resume writer needs a good
amount of writing skill, time on the telephone to get to know their client, and (ideally) a military
background. The good news is that there are writers out there with just such qualifications.
We've tried to provide a bit of help in identifying a resume service that can
translate your unique qualifications into a marketing document that opens doors. We wish you well in your job
