Military-to-Contractor Resumes with Just the Right Amount of “Demilitarization”
A Smooth Military Transition with Targeted Military Resumes
Transitioning from a career in the military to a government contractor job has become very popular among veterans. Sometimes, in the military, you are performing the exact same job as a military contractor, so transitioning to a government contractor job is less stressful than landing a corporate or federal position after time spent in the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard.
The “Demilitarizing” Factor
CareerProPlus.com has been successfully developing military transition resumes for more than two decades. Should you write your resume entirely in “military speak?” Should you “demilitarize” your resume so Human Resources (HR) can better understand the experience you bring? Do you struggle with crafting a targeted military resume? We can help you with all that and more.
Our Master Military Resume Writers know exactly how to develop a targeted military to contractor resume, drilling down hundreds of pages of military performance evaluations and writing the perfect balance of content that will catch the contractor’s eye.
Online and Job Board-Friendly Military Contractor Resumes
Most Department of Defense contractors require resume submission through online systems. Our military transition resumes are built with important keywords and acronyms targeted to specialized equipment, systems, training, projects, names of programs, or missions that will cross over to contracting job requirements.
CareerProPlus.com has in-house secure servers, systems, and databases that arm our writers with the most current career tools and resources. Our Master Military Resume Writers stay on top of the trends and know how to craft a military to contractor resume that’s sure to get you noticed.
