A strong resume is the cornerstone to your search. It should include your competencies, skills, experience, etc. From that, you can apply, interview, and network.

Thank You Dr. Sachs I thought I reviewed it better. That is really embarrassing. Communication in the written language it a powerful tool if one can master that their power is truly limit less.

Humberto, I hope you find this helpful. I'm trying to help protect you.

You need to watch your spelling. One incorrectly-spelled word in a letter or resume or online representation can doom you. You have been spelling, "hiring" as "hireing."

Have someone with flawless English skills look over anything you post or send in.

Having transitioned out of the military, Navy, after 6 years, I would encourage you to seek out others on LinkedIn who have the background your looking to pursue and reach out to them for a "informational" interview , 5mins approx where you ask them to share their ideas on how they enjoy the occupation your pursuing.

You'll find that when asking their advice their usually open to helping as your not directly asking for a job and often if you hit it off sometimes they'll ask if your actually looking and then go from there!

Thank You Dawn, I'll start building a stable corner stone communicating my competence thoroughly, along with my strong skills and soft skills. Well fitted experience that lines with what the job specified needs are in the posting. I will apply, interview and network in various order.
