Finding employment can be difficult, but it can be especially hard for military spouses because of frequent relocations and the lack of a strong network. You can increase your chances of finding a job in the field you love by having a great resume.
A resume is a tool designed to get you to the next step - an interview. Human resource screeners or hiring managers take mere seconds to decide which candidates go in the 'YES' and 'NO' piles for an interview. Your goal is to promote your skills in a brief and specific format, showing the company reviewing your resume that you have everything it takes to be the best fit for their position. You can do this by applying to positions you are well qualified for and customizing your resume for the specific position. Make it easy for the reviewer to see you are a great match for the job.
Use the information, template and resource links on the "Resume Writing" webpage to create your resume. You can also use the MySECO Resume Builder for a fast, simple method of developing your resume.
