Is your résumé getting nothing but crickets? Seriously, are you applying for jobs all over the place and getting no response, no matter how perfectly suited you are for the job? Typical for transitioning military, maybe.
Just don’t tell anyone. Because the person you tell is going to jump down your throat and insist no one ever gets a job with their résumé . (True.) Or they will tell you how you need to network into a job. (Also true.) Or they will tell you how you need to become an influencer in your field. (Not really true, but sounds true.)
Everyone busts a gasket telling transitioning military members and spouses how wrong they are in their job hunt without really explaining the fix in a way that makes sense to real people. This is especially true when it comes to résumés.
In my work as a career transition coach, I have helped hundreds of military members and spouses from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard build their first résumés. I can tell you this: There is nothing wrong with you. If you are getting no responses to your résumé, then there is something wrong with your résumé. You need to fix it before you start doing all those other smart things for your job hunt.
So I was really excited when Military.com offered me the chance to give you my Reverse Résumé Master Class in partnership with Monster and Randstad.

This is not a class for newbies. If you have never heard of a résumé before, your Transition Assistance Program (TAP) class will take you through the process step by step.
