PROFESSIONAL EXECUTIVE RESUME WRITING SERVICES

Military-to-Civilian Job Transition
 

EXCHANGING YOUR UNIFORM FOR A BUSINESS SUIT
You’ve had a successful career in the military, and now you’re preparing to pursue an adventure unlike anything you have ever known in the past. The military-to-civilian career transition process you are about to experience has major life-changing implications, and the team at Executive Resume is prepared to assist you. And needless to say, the first step of the transition process is to create a high-impact achievement-oriented executive resume that is a powerful and effective marketing tool designed to make employers want to see you. This means presenting your skills, past experiences and successes in terms that will answer every potential employer’s most pressing question:“What can you do for me?”

Executive Resume has been assisting military officers returning to civilian life since 1991, and we fully understand that an effective military-transition resume is about the future and the new career path that you wish to pursue.  Whether you have commanded a staff group such as finance or human resources, or led a line unit in combat, ourCertified Executive Resume Writers are experts at the difficult task of taking your key management and relevant technical skills and translating them into solid transferable assets that clearly communicate how your qualifications relate to the position for which you are applying. 

YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE – WE HAVE THE KNOW-HOW
Jobs that are challenging and high paying are more difficult than ever to find, and it is a simple fact that military rank and position – not tied to demonstrated performance – won’t count for much in the corporate executive suite.  To succeed, your resume must support “who you want to be,” as opposed to “who you have been,” so that hiring executives clearly understand how your skills and qualifications will be of value in their corporate environs.

As a military officer, you should be experienced at setting goals, developing action plans, and focusing on the accomplishment of your mission.  These skills will serve you well during your upcoming career change, but if you don’t have a thorough understanding of the civilian job market, you are likely to flounder in the process of making your military-to-civilian transition.  Job hunting is a most competitive activity, and when you partner with Executive Resume we will show you how to avoid many of the problems and frustrations that plague those retiring officers who prefer to go it alone.

EXECUTIVE RESUME WILL SUPPORT YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR CAREER TRANSITION
The competition for jobs is a unique situation in that you don’t know anything about your well-qualified competitors or exactly what they are doing.  Accordingly, many retiring officers fail to grasp the magnitude of their competition and how it affects their chances, so they act with less diligence and aggressiveness than they did in demanding situations in the military.  Others simply overestimate their ability to market themselves, since they do not fully appreciate the fact that the mere possession of outstanding written materials is no guarantee of success.

To significantly escalate each client’s level of success, Executive Resume offers an array of career-transition services ranging from the preparation of truly superior executive resumes and cover letters, to the targeted distribution of resumes to executive recruiters and corporate employers across the country for those attempting to maximize the number of interviews they are granted.  On a select basis, we also plan, create and execute all matters pertaining to broad-based marketing campaigns for senior officers targeting the highest C-level executive positions.

AMERICA’S TOP CAREER MARKETING SERVICE FOR MILITARY OFFICERS
If properly prepared, your military-transition resume can lead to a financially rewarding career track.  Conversely, under-marketing yourself can cost you tens-of-thousands of dollars over the span of your civilian career.  A high-impact, achievement-oriented, military-transition resume will not only create an interest on the part of employers to see you, but it will continue selling for you throughout the entire interview and salary negotiation process. 

Executive Resume has distinguished more than a thousand military officers from their well-qualified competition, and we can do the same for you.  With an unparalleled reputation for preparing the nation’s most powerful executive resumes, and a success rate second to none, call today and let Executive Resume give you the edge that is essential to successfully compete in today’s fiercely competitive employment market.

SOME FORMER CLIENTS SPEAK OUT ABOUT OUR WORK

 

"Your resume actually did what you claimed it would do – get interviews. I’m just sorry I waited so long because the extra income I could have been earning would have paid for my investment in your service many times over."
Captain, U.S. Marine Corps


"Fortunately I decided to use your career marketing service to make the transition from active duty in the Army to civilian employment. Within 10 weeks of launching my campaign I had an offer for about $15,000 more than I had anticipated."
Colonel, U.S. Army


"I almost didn’t use your service, since I thought it was something I could do myself. But my resume wasn’t working, so I bit the bullet and decided to give you a try. And am I glad I did. There is no way I could have even come close to producing the type of resume you did."
Lt. Commander, U.S. Navy


"It was an eye-opening experience completing the Career Profile Analysis, and an exercise that was well worth my time. Not only did it lead to a great resume, but it has made my interviews a more relaxed endeavor.  Without question, your service is the best!"
Major, U.S. Marine Corps


"You are to be commended on the professionalism and know-how of everyone on your staff. It was a comfort to know that I had some real heavyweights on my side. Thanks to your efforts the entire process was much easier than I thought it would be, and the results actually surpassed my expectations."
Colonel, U.S. Air Force


 

 

"I can’t say enough about your resume writing service and the direct mail campaign you completed for me. The net result was 5 responses, 3 interviews, and the exact job I was hoping to find."
Lt. Colonel, U.S. Army


"Getting an offer so quickly was quite an ego boost after spending seven months job hunting with little to show for my time and effort. Thank you for all your encouragement and guidance."
Captain, U.S. Navy


“Just for your information, the job offer I received was exactly what I was  hoping for.  Your guidance and coaching prior to my interviews and salary negotiations was right on target.” 
Major, U.S. Air Force


“It only took me 57 days to land my first civilian job in 23 years.  My resume was excellent and your assistance regarding my job hunt and salary negotiation strategy will provide me with an excellent return over the remainder of my working life.” 
Colonel, U.S. Army


"Your warning that military rank would not automatically open corporate doors proved prophetic. However, the resume you prepared, together with the mailing program you conducted, did the trick. I sincerely appreciate your hard work and knowledgeable guidance, and unequivocally recommend Executive Resume to any of my colleagues transitioning into the corporate environment."
Brigadier General, U.S. Army
