Here are three things every Veteran should include on their resume and boast about in their interviews: (1) Leadership. Most Veterans leave the military having some form of leadership experience. That experience is valuable for the work place; (2) Follower. The other side of that coin is how good of a follower we are. We spend our entire military service following and obeying orders. You can be the person that stands out by explaining how you followed orders and took initiative based on the commander’s intent; and (3) Teamwork. A successful unit requires teamwork. List an example of where you were a part of a strong team and describe that experience in the interview. For employment resources provided by VA and the Department of Labor, visit the VA website.
