Luis Diego Lopez Machado Apo, AA

I've been a Personnel Specialist (Admin type) for over 8 years in the Navy. I think I translated all the military jargon in my resume to the proper civilian terms. I've been actively applying for jobs for the past few months but seems like I am not getting any call backs. What am I missing? Can anybody give me an unbiased and honest opinion about my resume?

We work with you hands-on and have had a great success rate in finding jobs for veterans. Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have.

Hi Luis!! I'd be happy to take a look at your resume. Can you email it to me at garthsgarden@yahoo.com ?

Have you applied with the state? They do require civil service exams for most positions but usually worth the effort. And make sure you've read this:
