Military Transition to federal jobs and private sector jobs is one of our specialties. We translate your military achievements, convert military jargon to civilian terms and generate a quality federal resume or professional resume to help you get started on your second career. We call the "civilian" resume a Military Transition Resume (MTR) and of course, federal jobs require a federal resume in one of several formats. You may have federal or other government hiring preference based on military service. Go to USAJOBS.gov to validate your preference points and contact us for help with your federal resume or military transition resume today. We suggest you get started anywhere from three to six months prior to discharge from the service.

Federal Resume Overview
The federal resume is unique and has several different variations. The most popular version is the USAJobs resume which has unique formatting and requirements, much different than a typical professional resume. Other government agencies use their own formats (such as AVUE, CIA and Quickhire) but they are slowly migrating to the USAJobs format. In fact the Navy CHART system recently cut over to USAJobs as did Army CPOL. Many people find the government position applications difficult to understand and needlessly complicated. It takes patience and it helps to have a background in working with these applications and in creating your federal resume.
Federal Resume Tip
Perhaps the most important thing to remember about working with a federal resume is to thoroughly read the requirements and understand the application process. If you don't meet the core requirements (or don't establish qualification in your resume) or if leave out any part of the required documents, you'll automatically be disqualified.

"My number one recommendation to
those leaving the military is to hire a resume writing service;
if you are seeking federal employment it is absolutely necessary.
Even if you are being recruited by a headhunter, there will come
a day when you need to have a solid resume. Preparing it soon
after leaving the service will makes it more accurate, more detailed,
and more descriptive. Service members are not used to having
to ask for a job there is an art to it."
"I called CareerPro Global after
looking on the internet for help with an SES package. I was in
a time crunch, did not know where to start, and I did not feel
I had any of the expertise to be considered for the position
but thought I should talk to someone before I decided not to
apply. Upon my initial contact I was immediately put at ease.
They showed me I not only qualified, that I was a strong contender
for the position. They assured me right up front they would do
all the work and all I would have to do is answer their questions,
provide the background information and RELAX.
True to their word my resume and technical skills were done in
an amazing amount of time. The greatest surprise to me was the
answers to the ECQs were EXACTLY how I would have answered the
questions if I had the time to sit down and write them myself.
It is because of their skill, caring and encouragement I made
it to the board and was interviewed for the SES. Without them
I would never have applied. "
