From Our Clients (Resume Services)

  • Cynthia Cohen - civilian to federal client

    " 5 Stars ***** I am very impressed how professional and knowledgeable the CPG team is. Of the two coaches that I worked with, they did not hesitate to refer to the other one if they did not have the answers I was seeking. My resume is totally awesome - it even impressed my civilian coach! The coaches were extremely pleasant and professional, but also personable. I would absolutely recommend Career Pro Services - I feel without the help of your coaches, I would be clueless and lost in mounts of government paperwork. "

Overseas Contractor Resumes

Providing a wealth of benefits and opportunities for veterans having trouble finding their career niche as civilians, overseas contractor jobs offer a great way for veterans to put their skills and military acumen to excellent use.

In fact, military overseas contractor jobs may serve as a kind of bridge for veterans transitioning from the military to the civilian workplace.

By initially working overseas after leaving the military, veterans can enhance their resume with non-military examples of adapting and succeeding in a civilian setting. Another reason that veterans should consider overseas contractor jobs involves the financial rewards. It’s not uncommon to earn more than $80,000 a year working overseas, and a large portion of your income is exempted from federal taxes if you live outside the U.S. for most of the year.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF A VETERAN AS A CONTRACTOR?

Employers advertising overseas military contractor jobs for veterans often seek special individuals to perform highly specialized jobs. They want U.S. veterans because they cannot find people in their home country qualified to handle these jobs.

Teamwork and leadership are the two top skills that employers value that veterans possess. They understand that veterans have, at some point in their military career, operated as vital components of a team, and also learned how to accept and follow directions from a team leader. In addition, employers looking to fill veteran overseas contracting jobs want to hire people they know are dependable, disciplined, and trustworthy, and have a strong work ethic.

Overseas companies also value veterans as contractors for their occupational skills, experience working with diverse groups of people, and demonstrating resilience in stressful situations. Accustomed to performing tasks in difficult conditions while consistently traveling and relocating without much notice, veterans are always in demand with employers seeking to fill specialized overseas contractor jobs. Armed with a professionally created, overseas contractor resume, veterans are almost guaranteed to find high-paying, exciting, and lucrative positions outside the U.S. upon leaving the military.

TIPS FOR STANDING OUT WHEN SEEKING EMPLOYMENT AS AN OVERSEAS CONTRACTOR

Veterans just out of the military often find it challenging to develop a resume that is civilian friendly. What kind of information should be included in a resume meant for overseas employment? What does a military-to-civilian resume look like, anyway? Does a veteran need to list everything they’ve learned and accomplished while in the military?

WRITING THAT FIRST DRAFT

Overseas contractor resumes for veterans seeking employment outside the U.S. should describe the following skills in detail, where applicable:

  • Training and experience in specialty tasks relevant to the contractor’s business operation
  • Ability to speak fluent English
  • Advanced weapons and safety training for contract security jobs
  • Experience and competence in crisis management, law enforcement, protective services, and crowd control
  • Interpreting expertise (list languages)
  • Security clearance as a U.S. veteran

    Don’t forget to include medals, awards, and accommodations you received while serving as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces—you earned them. Also, while concentrating on de-militarizing your skillsets and knowledge, remember to proofread for spelling and grammatical errors. Most foreign employers and their hiring managers seeking qualified applicants for overseas contractor jobs can read, write, and speak English quite well. Finally, numerically describing your achievements—instead of writing out the number—will attract the attention of whoever is scanning your resume.

    For example, if you were in charge of a large number of troops, write the number as “200,” not “two hundred.” Adding impressive-looking numbers to your overseas contractor resume naturally, makes someone look more like the “take-charge type.”
