Getting Your Resume Noticed
Hint: The most universally accepted format for soft-copy resumes is a Microsoft Word document.
Provide contact information on your resume and profile that will remain consistent for several months.
Be sure to note your date of availability. If you are an officer, list both your terminal leave and actual retirement date.
Listing your military experience in reverse chronological order is ideal. Include pertinent information such as: all military acronyms, MOSs, NECs, equipment, nomenclature, commands, responsibilities, and position titles.
Make yourself more attractive to recruiters and hiring managers by widening the choice of locations in which you would be willing to work. It may help to list specific cities you would relocate to.
When listing each command you served, make sure to include the dates, jobs, and responsibilities.
Check your DD-214 for details about any other information that may be valuable such as: your education, military training/schools attended, any certifications or degrees, special training, or any honors and awards.
List clearly any security clearances you may hold. It may also help to check with your SSO before your service departure to learn the active, expiration, and other pertinent dates of your clearance(s). Please ensure that your resume does not include any information regarding "sensitive" work or materials.
