Tip number 1.
Remember that you are sending your resume to Busy people. They don't have a lot of time to spend reading your resume. Make it short and sweet and make sure you get their attention quickly.

Tip number 2.
If you can see your way clear to do so, I strongly recommend that you get your resume professionally written. In todays competitive job market you need an edge, something to set you apart and a professional
resume writer
experienced in military to civilian resumes can put you leaps and bounds ahead of your competition. I suggest  Give them a a try I think you will be very happy with the results.

Tip number 3.
Focus on your strengths, skills and abilities. But write about them in civilian terms don't describe them in military speak! Your civilian resume reader will get lost, confused and lose interest in your resume.

Tip number 4.
Keep your resume relevant! Information that does not relate to the job at hand should be eliminated. lose the long lists of unrelated military awards and training that don't apply. If you have training and awards that apply by all means use them just don't get heavy handed with those that are off topic.

Tip number 5.
Keep the faith! Most employers know that veterans are top flight candidates for employment. They understand that Vet's are well trained, disciplined and know what work means. So don't get discouraged. If it gets tough, push through use your Resume and you will get the job that you want.

Good Luck!
