Military to Civilian Conversion Tips

Converting your military career for the private sector requires some work when it comes to preparing your resume. here are some tips to help you write a great military transition resume:

  • Use the resources that are available to you. There are plenty of transition services offered by the military and other organizations, which you can use and are free: for example they will help you with finding job listings and companies hiring veterans; they also offer classes on how to write military transition resumes. So make sure you use all these resources.
  • Forget your jargon. Civilian employers and recruiters not only have no clue on how military work is but they won’t understand your military jargon. So make sure you describe your experience and duties in a way that is clear and understandable for the average joe.
  • Avoid any warrior-like details. If you were involved in combats, you can mention it but avoid any Rambo-like detail people might not want to hear.
  • Do not expect special treatment. Even though what you did for your country is greatly appreciated, do not expect any favor as it will be treated as any other type of experience. What matters to employers is that you have the right qualifications for the job.

Keep these tips in mind and you should be able to prepare a great military transition resume.
