  • Resume Writing Tips for Veterans | Top Online Bachelor and Master Degrees | Southwestern College - Professional Studies | Wichita, KS
    resume indicating to employers who you are and what you have to offer This is also a pronounced way to show what position you are interested in applying for You will not stand out if you are using a blanket career objective 2 Match You Skillset Applying to jobs you are qualified for You are only wasting time and energy by applying for ones out of reach Focus your attention on jobs you stand a good chance at acquiring because of your experience and skills For example if your area of expertise is human resources you will have a difficult time landing a mechanical job Instead search for jobs using keywords such as human resources HR workforce planning and the like If you still have your heart set on mechanical positions find a technical school near you and enroll Education will help with you qualify for what your passion is 3 Cut out military lingo Remember most civilians do not speak military Acronyms or specific knowledge of military applications will liikely be lost to the person reviewing your resume If you do use an acronym in order to keep your resume at a certain length make sure you type out the full title of the acronym first Then you can shorten it with the acronym in a later sentence This may come as a challenge but translation will be needed from military specific language Resumes containing a lot of military terminology will cause human resource managers to overlook quality skills because they do not understand it 4 Sell Yourself It s OK to brag here No one knows you like you so sell yourself This is where you get to flaunt and even brag about accomplishments you have made awards you have recieved ands skills you have mastered But remember to make it easy for a civilian to understand taking that extra step to translate military jargon Also add credentials by including military honors and any medals earnd as this is definitely be one area where civilians will not be able to compete with you Display what you have to offer from your military skill by using HR friendly words such as Strategic Planning Performance Optimization Budget and Financing Corporate Administration World Class Organization Crisis Management Organizational Leadership Decision Making In many cases having served in the military makes you a highly desired candidate Critical thinking and problem solving skills are highly sought after skills By complementing your military involvement with these skills you validate your titles which is something that many civilian applicants will strive to do 5 Proofread proofread and proofread again When writing your resume it is essential to check for grammar and spelling errors It is not enough to simply run your resume through a spell check it requires proofreading One of the best things you can do is step away from your resume for half an hour and then go back to it It s amazing how many typos or grammatical errors you can miss

  • Spotlight Student | Top Online Bachelor and Master Degrees | Southwestern College - Professional Studies | Wichita, KS
    sure that you meet the mission of the military as well as accomplish something for yourself and your future What do you most look forward to upon retirement from the military The one thing that I look forward to the most is finally being able to use the skills that I have learned while in school I am happy that I currently work in a position where I am able to build upon the strengths of my Human Resources Development degree Once I retire I will not only have skills to expound upon but some experience as well What are your fears if any upon joining the civilian workforce I do not have any fears about joining the civilian work force I have worked in both sectors and I pretty much feel comfortable in both realms What tips would you tell someone who was thinking about furthering their education When you do it first take the time to figure out what you really want to do with your life The saddest thing is to see someone dedicate time and money to an education and never use it If time is an issue at least get started a little at a time rather than waiting until the last minute and life passes you by If you are in a position where you know that you won t use your degree until later in life make the preparations now and try to find out where you can intern for now just to gain the experience until you are ready What is an advantage and disadvantage in getting on online education The advantage of getting an online degree would be that you can take your time and do it bit by bit while still feeling like you have a life Online classes came in handy when my children had after school activities and I knew that I couldn t make it to class The disadvantages for me were that I enjoy talking to people in person and having the face to face interaction especially if I had any questions regarding the material Being in a classroom setting was also a good place to network with other people and work on group projects rather than being in other time zones Apply Online TODAY Learn More Today Program Level None Bachelor s Master s Doctorate Certificate Guest Select a Major None Cyber Crime Investigation Emergency Planning Enterprise Risk Management Executive Accounting Executive Leadership Executive Quality Management Homeland Security Lean Six Sigma Operational Leadership Organizational Communication Rural Healthcare Leadership Accounting Business Administration Business Quality Management Computer Programming Technology Criminal Justice Early Childhood Education Elementary Education General Studies Healthcare Administration Human Resource Management Information Systems Management RN to BSN Operations Management Pastoral Studies Psychology Security Management Strategic Leadership Accountancy Business Administration Education with a Major in Curriculum and Instruction Education with a Major in Special Education Education with a Major in Special Education Adaptive Education with a Major in Special Education Functional Leadership Management Security Administration Teaching
