If you’re transitioning from a military to a civilian career this Memorial Day, it may seem easy to just jot down everything you did on a resume and send it off to employers. However, the recruiter who reads that resume might have never set foot on a military base. So if your resume is full of military terminology, he will probably have no idea what you’ve been doing all these years!
A job interview can be a stressful experience. However, the aftermath isn’t necessarily any easier. Whether you’re desperate for a paycheck or are eager to embark on a new career opportunity, even a day may seem too long to hear back about whether you landed the job!
You just graduated college and want to move on from that job that helped you afford noodles and textbooks for a few years. After a seemingly endless job search and more interviews than you can remember, you’ve received an offer.
Getting fired can be a challenging experience. And whether it was deserved or not, you probably aren’t happy with how your last job ended.
Your resume gets a very brief opportunity to impress a recruiter. In fact, an average recruiter will spend a mere six seconds reading it before deciding whether to move forward with you. So you won’t want her to have to sift through irrelevant details in order to find the information she seeks. After all, if you graduated from an elite university and have 20 years of relevant experience, you won’t want her to toss your resume to the side before getting to these facts!
