We understand that as a veteran, there are a number of skills that you can bring to an organization, but it may be difficult to translate those specific skills into civilian jargon for job searches/resumes. At Northrop Grumman, 20% of our employees are veterans, with another 1,600 reservists on our team. It is important to us to help members of the military transition to a civilian career. Develop a strong impression with these resume tips for veterans.
A common issue with veterans writing resumes is that the veteran has been trained to think of "self" last; that the team and mission are all that is important. These are excellent values and an ethos that are to be commended. However self-serving as it may seem, as a veteran, you must promote yourself and your skills when applying for a job outside of the military, including your contributions and experience.
