One of the biggest barriers to searching for jobs is understanding how the skills you learned in the military translate to the civilian workforce. Military.com features a powerful tool that breaks down the unique abilities inherent to any military occupational specialty (MOS) and tells you what keywords and terms to use in your resume, as well as suggested job openings.

Your Skills Breakdown:

  • (Physical) Access Control Procedures
  • Advanced First Aid
  • Crime Prevention Techniques
  • Crisis Intervention Techniques
  • Driving/Maneuvering Skills
  • Fingerprinting
  • Firearm and Explosives Handling
  • Investigation Techniques
  • Loss Prevention Techniques
  • Protective Services

Civilian Job Suggestions:

Police Officer – Police officers keep the peace, enforce laws, and act as general first responders to emergency situations. It's important to be able to keep a cool head under pressure, and if you've served in the military, that's exactly the type of skill you have. Law enforcement is different from serving in the military, but there are a lot of skills that translate. If you know how to operate a firearm, are able to make hard choices quickly, and possess a good deal of integrity, this may be the perfect job for you.

Loss Prevention – Loss prevention officers are responsible for securing areas that sell goods. The job requires far more than preventing petty theft; loss prevention personnel are often tasked with uncovering credit card fraud and apprehending dangerous assailants. While loss prevention teams operate in smaller teams than the military, they enjoy a similar type of comraderie, respect, and call to action.

Security Analyst – Criminals target all types of organizations for a wide variety of reasons, and it's up to security analysts to minimize or negate their attempts. Some are contracted and others are fully employed, but each one is responsible for understanding how an organization operates in order to identify potential vectors of illegal activity and secure them. Whether it's stopping hackers from swiping credit card numbers or making sure the back door to an office building stays locked, the job will present a variety of ever-changing challenges.
