Seeking guidance and help with resume writing and networking.
I have two things that I would recommend you do that helped me. For my own resume, I used a non profit organization called Veterati that connects veterans with mentors thru LinkedIn. I filtered for mentors in the HR field that worked specifically in hiring and sent them my resume to provide feedback and that helped me to craft a powerful resume.
Secondly, I have some documents that I've collected with a list of veteran resources if you are interested, I can share that with you. My email is email@example.com if you would like me to share that information with you and I can also let you know which ones I've used that I have found really helpful to me. I hope this helps.
Brian I suggest that you do a couple things. First don't worry initially about format but do a data dump of your career just kind of stream of conscience kind of thing. That will be a start point where you can begin to refine, reword, add and delete as it becomes a workable document. Next is something like a game of 20 questions where you probe more deeply into what you do, how did you get promoted, what was the movement of your MOS over time, what did you accomplish, etc. Then start to transform this into a more readable resume format, work on attaining a concise document that is specific and crisp to help you stand out from the crowd. Start to target your areas of interest with your skills/accomplishments and then you can confidently begin to apply for jobs with pointed cover letters and resumes that make you competitive. I'd be happy to help work thru this.
Good luck and thanks for your service.
Brian, I would be happy to help you. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have started your resume, you can include it as a Word document, and I will review it. If you're not sure how to begin, we can set up a phone call to discuss, so please let me know some times that would work for you. Once your resume is in good form, we can talk about networking.
So I got help with writing my resume through Hire Hiroes USA. https://www.hireheroesusa.org/
I didn't have a resume built at the time and they helped me with it. They also have other services too. It is definitely worth taking a look at.
