TRANSITIONING FROM MILITARY TO PRIVATE SECTOR


The transition from service member work to civilian work can be a stressful task but a necessary one.


As you near your EAS you have a plethora of tasks to take care of, and one of the most important ones is employment.


It is important that you have a resume that can showcase your military skills but can also translate into civilian skills in a way that a recruiter and/or hiring manager can read and understand what your skills are.


If your military experience is supply then your resume should reflect your experience with supply chain, or asset management.


If your military experience is operations or management of projects, your resume should show your experience in managing operations or management projects (Project Management).


If you have military experience managing teams or running programs for different teams in various global areas then you may want to put in logistics in your resume.


These are some of the areas that translate into the private sector skill set.


When you are preparing your resume, take the time to look at your skill set and research how your skill translates to a civilian title.  This helps a recruiter sell you and a hiring manager to understand your skill set.
