From Our Clients (Sample Resumes )

  • SSG. Allan Young

    " After 2 years applying to Federal Jobs on my own with no luck you made it possible. I can not find the words to thank you for the Resume and KSA's that you wrote for me. I applied to the U.S. State Department and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Both Resumes went to the hiring Managers who conducted a phone interview with me. Believe it or not one Federal Agency told me that the position that i applied for may not be good match for me. When I heard that I was shocked until they respond by asking me if I may consider a higher position with greater pay. Thank you so much Deborah. "

Sample Resumes

If you’re looking for a government job or a civilian job as a veteran, you need to prepare for an entirely different way of submitting job applications. The format and use of resumes in the civilian and government sectors may be different than what many military personnel expect.

Sample military resumes can give you a sense of what your own resume should look like, what it should include and what format it should follow. Fortunately, CareerProPlus has assembled a selection of sample military resumes for civilian job applications and federal jobs to help you out.

 

 

Resume Trends for Civilian Jobs

For civilian jobs in most sectors and industries, your military experience can translate well to the job market. As you can see from the military resume examples below, jobs in the private sector focus on specific skills. If, for example, you worked with computers or led teams as part of your military experience, you can list this on your resume for a job in the private sector. You should stress how transferrable your skills are and show that you have performed similar work to what the employer needs.

Military resumes also tend to have a lot of white space. Make sure you use text boxes to set off separate areas, such as your contact information or specific duties. You can also use headings or bolded text to make your resume easy to scan.

Resume Trends for Federal Jobs

When you look at a sample federal resume, you can see that they differ from private sector resumes. These resumes tend to be longer and more focused on accomplishments, qualifications and training rather than descriptions of job duties.

The majority of federal government jobs are advertised through USAJOBS, and you’re expected to use the platform to apply. As you can see from the sample USAJOBS resume below, USAJOBS requires you to fill out specific “fields” such as training and KSAs (Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities). Sometimes, it will ask you to complete a supplemental questionnaire as well.
