Military (Army) CV Examples

"I am ex-army and realise the military can offer a great deal of experience to civilian employers, yet their abilities are often overlooked. With a little innovation, military people can easily make the transition to civilian life and effectively position themselves as worthy candidates". Mike Kelley  CV writer since 1989.

CV Street - Military personnel - Tips on writing your CV: Everyone's talking about "key words and key skills." I index these under a category of "Areas of Expertise." Conducting a job search is like marketing and selling a product, with YOU as the product. The best way to market yourself is to go through this sales sequence.  In sales you have the "Features and Benefits" of the service or product provided. When selling yourself these can be communicated as your "Skills and Achievements".

Ex-military personnel can offer a great deal of experience and dedication to prospective commercial employers. Yet their abilities are often overlooked, because , they may not be able to understand the skill gained throughout your career, because recruiters feels that the language used or "buzz words" do not match. If the recruiter is forced to decipher too much information or jargon, he or she may be unable to see the experience they seek. With analysis and innovation, people can easily make the transition from military to civilian careers and effectively position themselves as worthy candidates. The first step for the transition is for the applicant to understand his or her skills and abilities, and how those abilities relate to their intended job target / business or industry. These can be indexed on the front page of the CV for IMPACT anything from Leadership, Human Resources, to Policy-making and Strategic Planning, Financial Planning, Operations Management, Purchasing, Systems Administration and Support.

Survival of the Fittest. To create the "Civilian" CV (as with any other specialized field) military job applicants need not only to prepare their CV and cover letter in "lay terms" but also to strategise how they will "fit in", marketing themselves throughout the hiring process with the focus on the professional capabilities the benefits the applicant will bring to the company or organization.

CV Presentation:  Your CV's visual presentation is as critical as the content. Readers should be immediately impressed with the appearance, content and targeting.  The applicant should use the language and industry terms specific to the chosen industry and profession.

It's a sales thing! it isn't the features that are purchased in sales, it is the benefits of the service or product. When job hunting in Civvy Street, the same applies. You may be the best Soldier around, but this is not the reason you are going to be employed. It is because your skills (features) make a contribution (benefits), i.e. achieving things for your employer. The "benefits" you deliver are the reason why you will be hired. Think about your achievements when writing your CV, you should ask yourself the question " who benefited from my work and how'?"  You CV can become "benefit laden". This will also help you at interviews.
