Leaving the military is both exciting and daunting. You have a wealth of skills and experience to offer but how do you translate those into terms that a civilian employer will recognise and value. At Career Edge we have a working knowledge of Defence careers, training and skills and how to leverage these valuable assets to potential employers.
In fact Career Edge has won awards for its Defence resumes. Whether you are Army, Navy, Air Force or a trailing spouse we can help!
Military to Defence Resumes
All too often Defence personnel undervalue the very real and distinct benefits a background in Defence brings to potential employers. Discipline; leadership and team work; second-to-none training; and proven performance under some of the toughest standards in the world are just a few of the rare benefits ex-Defence personnel offer. No matter what your background or target we can help build a resume that will sell you.
Facing civilian interviewing after a career in Defence can be intimidating. Our specialist Interview Coach can help. Learn what to expect in civilian interviewing, familiarise yourself with common interview pitfalls for Defence personnel, and then hone your skills in our simulation interview session.
