Hello, Lourdes -

I would be happy to review your resume and provide applicable feedback. It's important to remember that a resume should be tailored to the position, highlighting knowledge/skills/abilities you possess and that are related.

Let me know if I can assist in any way!

Kind regards, Kathryn

I would be happy to help you with your resume. I helped a veteran through this site as she relocated and got a job. I helped an Army veteran rewrite his resume by looking up his MOS and rewriting the resume based on the description. I was a hiring manager for most of my 44 year career. I'm retired now. If you want my help, please let me know.

Hello Lourdes,

I could take a look at what you have and give some feedback. Thanks for your service! I transitioned from active duty military service back in 2018. One of the biggest struggles I had with my resume was effectively translating my military experience and training into industry terms that are comparable in the civilian workforce. I by no means am an expert, but am here if you need assistance.

Hi Lourdes,

Take a look at my Smart 5th Grader Test for a simple way to think about translating military speak into simple civilian language.

Let me know if you get stuck on a particular term or phrase.


Teresa Greenwood Hartford, CT

Hi Lourdes,
I am happy to give you feedback. I am a manager at Travelers Insurance and have read many resumes over the years. Resumes have changed from being task focused to skills focused. If you'd like input from a business professional, my work email is:
Thank you for your 24 years of service. I am grateful for your dedication to this country.
