Pro Tips to ensure your resume sells you as the best job candidate
If you are just out of the military and about to start your job search, or been stateside awhile and unable to land a job, you may be unaware how dramatically the work-world has changed since you were last employed as a civilian. Or discovered this, and unable to figure out how to make changes necessary to adapt to it all.
Bottom line, job changing and interviewing is stressful for most. Perhaps more so for you having been away for several years. You may be asking yourself 'how do I deal with these changes'? What steps can I take to successfully integrate into this new work-world?
First you must start with your Resume since it’s what introduces you to hiring pros and decision makers. Unfortunately these people don’t always understand the general skills and abilities of ex-military applicants.
To these hiring pros and decision makers your skills and experience are often so unique, and written in a way understandable only by military types making it difficult for hiring pros to translate them to determine where you and your skills and experience will comfortably fit into their company. Putting you at a distinct disadvantage before you even meet them.
According to hiring pros - if you don’t make your skills clear, don't follow todays customary hiring practices plus capture their attention, and engage them - from word one - it’s likely your resume ends up in the unqualified file.
