Proud of Your Military Background
You might have heard you need to develop a functional resume format to mask
or downplay your military experience, but the opposite is true. Your
military experience is an asset and should be marketed as such. Many
employers realize the value of bringing veterans on board. Attributes honed
in the military include dedication, leadership, teamwork, positive work
ethic and cross-functional skills. If you fear a potential employer won't
realize the significance of your military experience, make sure your resume
clearly communicates the value you bring to the table.
Marketing your Military
Anyone thinking about leaving the service
should read this
at least 18 months before
separating, whether leaving after one hitch, or a 20+ year retirement. Mr.
Henderson has laid out in a clear, logical manner all the things that must
be considered before transitioning into the civilian work force. Most
military people simply haven't thought about leaving the service until it is
upon them. This book is a "primer". It will get you started in the creation
of your own personal transition plan, one that meets your needs. Not a "one
size fits all" book by any means, you build your own plan. The book lays out
a foundation, the details are your personal choice. In fact, the amount of
other sources of important information referenced in the book is one of it
most valuable strengths.
