FOR VETERANS

Transitioning from Active duty service to Civilian life can be a challenge. Resources are available. Do not be afraid to ask for help. Many of us here have been in your shoes and know the challenges you will be facing or are facing. 

Below is a few events for Military veterans, transitioning servicemembers, and spouses. If you do not see one in your area, please tweet me @LimaCharlieEdit and I will do my best to find some resources for you.

 

If you’re a United States Military Veteran and DO NOT have a VA Disability rating. Click here, register and file a claim for compensation on EBenefits.

  • Even if you’ve never been injured & made it through your services completely unscathed, a disability rating of 0% is an option just so you’re in the system & can take advantage of other benefits local, state, & federal governments offer.

Interviewing & Resume writing tips

– Demilitarize the language: List your title & rank in your resume, of course. But don’t forget you’re among civilians. Provide some basic information about what you did without  resorting to jargon or acronyms.

– Focus on skills: Describe the skills gained from your role in the military. But remember the jargon. Instead of saying, “I patrolled the streets of Iraq and engaged in combat.” Say; “Created a safe working environment for myself and my team members.” Instead of a “fire team leader” say “team leader.”

– Brag a little: Emphasize your accomplishments and contributions to your team’s success. If you were awarded a medal, include it in your  resume. Proudly display your accomplishments.

– Don’t forget the basics: Current contact information, email, address, phone number. (Consider creating a new email address if you have something from high school with the number 69 or inappropriate language.)

– Find a mentor: Talk to other veterans who have been in your shoes, the transition from active duty to the  civilian world can be tough, especially if you have a family you have to provide for.

– Speak freely: Communication among civilians is a little more relaxed compared to the military. During interviews, ask relevant questions and highlight your achievements. You’re goal is to stand out among all other candidates.

– Research the company: Memorize their Mission, their core values. Learn some basic facts about the community they serve.

 

 

Upcoming books written by Veterans. These guys are a prime example of: “Hard work pays off.”
