Explaining to would-be employers what you did in the military in a way that makes sense to them can be difficult. Translating the military words on your resume into civilian ones can be challenging, but you do not have to do it alone. Visit your transition assistance office or the family services and support center's employment readiness program. On either doorstep, you will find expert one-on-one counseling assistance or available classes, free of charge. Also, here are several websites that offer excellent military-to-civilian translation tools: Military.com's Military to Civilian Skills Translator and Military.com's Resume Writing Service.
