Job Search & Resume Tips

  • #2
    Sell yourself. Instead of telling just what you have done, tell them how well you’ve done it.

    Include keywords. Learn civilian keywords that translate your skills into language a hiring manager can understand.
  • #4
    Create versions. Customize your resume to the job.

    Proofread relentlessly. Enlist a friend or family member to proofread as a second set of eyes.

    Prepare for the interview. Research the company before the interview.
