  • This was great, thank you Military & Veteran Career Wise! Resume keywords are way more important than resume formats. Because recruiters conduct keyword searches during the initial sourcing process in Applicant Tracking Systems. You're not found if your resume doesn't contain the exact keywords. But it's a pain to find those keywords from the job descriptions. I found the site Jobscan that identify keywords for your. All you do is paste in your resume plus the job description, then Jobscan analyzes your job description for you automatically and identify the most important keywords for you. It literally takes seconds and it so worth the copy and paste. Saved me so much time AND I got more interviews using Jobscan! I recommend it as well.

Navy Career Wise picked CDB as a special topic this month because it covers the entire career of a Sailor – a process that everyone in the Navy should have, at least three times in each tour whether it’s for PTS, Transitioning, Advancement and other scenarios when a Sailor has to make an important decision. Without a CDB, I could give you at least 5 of the many things that could happen: 1. Failure to reenlist on time because Sailor did not have the information on the requirements. 2. Failure to correct records therefore failure to advance or get the other requirements on time. 3. Failure to obtain benefits and entitlements because Sailor has been getting unsupported information. 4. Failure to complete the mission because Sailor has been misinformed or did not have an opportunity to officially address important issues. 5. Failure to document commitments and follow up because there is no accountability that only a CDB can do. This list could go on and on but a CDB can happen and it is just a matter of investing that 20-30 minutes of your time together as CCC, CMC, Mentor, Division Officer, including XO & LPO and talk about all the issues related to our Sailor’s career, family, benefits, and their goals.

Navy is definitely going online with many of the services that can help you have a squared away career. Check all few of them identified in this Career Wise edition. •Develop a Plan. Find out what is your short and long term plan and write it down. This will give you a visual map to attain your goal. •Set up a Career Development Board (CDB).

Many Sailors have completed their Bachelors Degree without even using their GI Bill. Save up your GI Bill by using your TA benefits. •Attend a TAP Class – If you are undecided and unsure if the Navy is the right career for you. • Prepare yourself for the job of the leader at the next higher rank, volunteer to take on challenging tasks and be open to learning. •Develop a Financial Plan. If you have a poor financial health, it affects your job and ability to focus in your work. Setup a budget or talk to your Command Financial Specialist. •Be Involved with your Community, this will expand your horizon and get you time-off, away from military obligations and have that self-fulfillment that you really have contributed something to the society. It’s an added bullet for your evaluations too. •Train yourself in other Jobs. With PTS requirements some of you may be forced to convert to another rate, so be prepared.
