©Military to Civilian Career

Many times, what a transitioning program doesn’t provide is how to really connect verbally and in written form with the civilian world. Your cheat sheet is perfect for anyone working on their resume, writing a cover letter, or conducting either a virtual or in-person interview. Your sheet allows a transitioning military member to translate military-speak to civilian language.
