Is there one particular or “go-to” résumé format which best highlight a service member’s experience? What are the main concerns an employer holds in regard to a military member’s time in service? What do veterans need to keep in mind when preparing their résumé? How can former service members make their résumés stand out to potential civilian employers?
Retiring service members submit their résumés to private sector companies and organizations on a daily basis. Fred Coon, CEO, Stewart, Cooper & Coon, has a lively conversation with military transition expert, Aerielle Ludwig, on the best resume styles and layouts, how to address concerns, what veterans need to keep in mind when preparing their résumés, and how to make their résumés stand out from their competition. Coincidentally, Aerielle is a Lock Haven University graduate, one of the universities where Fred Coon conducted a seminar for twelve college career centers and a student body presentation on job search tactics that work.
