Transition Advice
Resume Top Tips

A good resume advertises your qualifications and shows your value to prospective employers. Be sure it not only captures your key skills and accomplishments, but also illustrates what you can do for their company. Here are a few of our top tips to greatly improve your likelihood of standing out and getting an interview:

Focus on your accomplishments as they relate to an employer’s needs. This requires you to do company research to target your resume to specific employers. Make a recruiter’s job easier by showing them why you are a good match and how you can fill their needs. Stating this first on your resume as an Objective or Summary statement will get their attention.

To make it through the initial software auto-screening that many companies use, tailor your resume to the specific job opening you’re targeting. How are the skills and requirements worded in the job posting? Mirror that wording on your resume to increase the likelihood your resume will make it through the automated screen.

Translate into civilian terms all the military acronyms and jargon that describe your skills and accomplishments. To help translate your skills and experience into civilian terms, read the article:
6 Steps to Translating Your Military Skills and use tools like the O*Net Online Military Crosswalk.

Corporate Gray Online has sample resumes to get you started in creating your resume. Choose from a selection of common military occupations such as electrician, engineer, homeland security, maintenance, etc. These can be downloaded in Microsoft Word format and easily modified.

Share your resume with a few people you think will give you objective and useful feedback. Seek advice from someone in a hiring position similar to one you will encounter in an interview. Take the time to make your resume a quality first impression!
