Military Resumes Are Different: Service Personnel and the Federal Job Process

April 20, 2007 – 7:35 am

Military resumes are different and those differences in the Federal job process can help the veteran and should be taken advantage of. Remember of course that a professional Federal resume writer can always provide assistance in utilizing military experience and the advantages that come from being a veteran when seeking Federal employment.The first thing to keep in mind is that the Federal employment resume takes Veterans Preference into account. Just for having served in the Armed Forces of the United States a veteran will receive five points, providing a leg up in getting selected. A veteran who has a service connected disability will receive a ten point veterans preference, which can make a world of difference.Also remember that a veteran already has Federal work experience. Years of service count in the Federal hiring and review process, and should always be included on the Federal resume and highlighted because they will make a positive impact in how an applicant who is a veteran is perceived and received.When discussing resume preparation with a professional Federal resume writer, always go into as much detail as possible regarding your military service. The Federal resume writer would rather have too much information than not have enough.
