Items to Consider When Seeking Employment as an Overseas Contractor

Veterans just out of the military often find it challenging to develop an overseas contractor resume that is civilian friendly. What kind of information should be included in a contractor resume that is 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 of Your Resume

Overseas contractor resumes for Veterans seeking overseas employment 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
  • Foreign language skills (list languages)
  • Security clearance and expiration date

Don’t forget to include medals, awards, and commendations 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— for instance, writing “$50,000” instead of “fifty thousand dollars”—will attract the attention of whoever is scanning your resume.

Adding impressive-looking numbers to your overseas contractor resume naturally, makes someone look more like the “take-charge type.”
