  8. 8. Military to Corporate • • • • • • Compete Against Your Civilian Applicants In the economy we face today, it is not enough for your resume to be good; it must be great. The biggest challenge for military members is how to describe their experience like that of their civilian counterparts in order to be competitive. "Demilitarizing" military jargon is one of the most important strategies in landing a corporate position. We wrote the book, Roadmap to Job-Winning Military to Civilian Resumes to guide you through this process. Your Success Is Our Success With 25 years of past performance, we have developed more military to corporate resumes than any other company. We find that most of our military clients are very humble and tell us that they just did their job or accomplished their mission. So it’s our job and mission to extract the myriad of experiences gained from your training, actual real-time missions, and, most importantly, accomplishments, that set you apart from everyone else in the military with the same MOS. Our writers have a vast amount of training and expertise to accomplish this on your behalf. Corporate America Wants to Hire the Military Now you can have a superior military to corporate resume that will crystallize your military experience into plain civilian language with a twist of excellence that is compelling, is accomplishment-focused, and describes your experience and the value you bring to any corporate environment. Contact us for professional military resume assistance to help you as you transition.
  9. 9. Military to Federal • • • • • The Federal Government Values Military Experience If you are about to leave the military, chances are you have thought of seeking your next career in the federal government. Why? Well, there are many reasons. The federal government values military experience, as many of the jobs are similar to work performed by military personnel. It's a natural transition for military personnel to apply for their counterpart civilian job in the federal government. Military to Federal Is a Natural Transition It is not unusual for a military member or veteran to be hired as a civilian for the same job or similar position once held while on Active Duty. Many of the skills and duties involved in military positions are directly transferable to civilian government jobs with DHS, FEMA, DoD, VA, TSA, DLA, FBI, CIA, and many other agencies and organizations. Many federal agencies also value the training and certifications gained in the military, not to mention those who possess and hold an active security clearance. Experience can substitute for college degrees in many mid- and senior-level government positions. Private-sector jobs often require a minimum four-year degree for mid- to senior-level positions, but the federal government recognizes that military experience can often provide invaluable real-world experience. A military member or veteran without a degree can often enter the government workforce at a higher level than in the private sector. With the federal government, you are less likely to start at the bottom and "work your way up."
  10. 10. Military to Federal • • • • • • Veterans' Preference Military veteran candidates are often eligible for special preference over non-veterans when applying for a government job. In some cases, even the spouses of veterans who were separated under honorable conditions can receive Veterans' Preference. New federal hiring initiatives have been established by President Obama in 2011 to ensure veterans have preference in landing federal jobs. What Federal Position Best Matches Your Experience?

  11. 11. Military to Contractor • • The "Demilitarizing" Factor has been successfully developing military to contractor resumes for more than two decades.

We have all the answers and more.

  13. 13. MILITARY SPOUSE RESUME • • • When military service members are transferred, most of the time, the spouses and families are moving, too. Quite often, this means the spouse of a military member will be leaving one job and scrambling to find another in the new location. It can be a stressful time, so prepare yourself with knowledge and assistance. A new military spouse resume will help the job search process. Our certified Resume Writers have written thousands of professional, military transition and federal resumes supported by advanced industry credentials and our rock-solid ISO 9001:2008 quality process.

Today's military spouses are a viable solution to the shortage of dedicated, high-quality employees necessary in a volatile economy. While often overlooked in the past, military spouses are proving their value as they combine talent, training, and unique skills honed by the rigors of military family life. This might be the best time to press the advantage of being "married to the military" and secure quality work.
