Navigating the job hunt - already a tough task during an economic downturn - is especially difficult for veterans hoping to transition into a civilian career. A major obstacle they face is to write a resume that resonates with civilian hiring managers and recruiters.
This timely addition to JIST's popular Quick series of booklets provides essential job search information about writing resumes and cover letters, finding jobs, and interviewing while focusing on issues specific to transitioning service members. For example, the guide discusses how to address employers' potential military stereotypes and how to market military skills and accomplishments in civilian terms. Worksheets, checklists, and information about additional resources are also included.
