Especially for Veterans

As a veteran you have a set of qualities and professional experience that give you a leg up with your civilian career.  In recognizing your strengths, we at the Career Center also appreciate the challenges associated with transitioning back into the culture of civilian life and work environments.  The Career Center is here to provide the resources to assist you during this next phase of your career path.  In addition to the resources available to all students and alumni, here are links of particular interest to veterans.

Marketing your Military Experience & Making a Plan

Composing a civilian resume using military experience effectively can require careful attention to language and terminology. Check out this link for some examples of using military experience in civilian resumes and cover letters in a variety of industries.  Make an appointment to create a career plan with Holly Wilkinson, Career Counselor for Veterans at the Career Center and drop in at the HUB to review your materials and get started.
