Q. I'm getting out of the military and just beginning to search for a civilian job. I have the resume I wrote when I graduated from college, but think I need a new one because things have changed in the last few years.
Ans. They have, and the first thing suggestion is write only one page with the skills you can bring to the company right at the top. Also write an individual resume and cover letter for each company you're addressing. Another important thing to remember is that while the military love acronyms, civilian employers have no clue what they mean, says Janet Farley, author of "Military-To-Civilian Career Transition Guide, Second Edition"(Jist $14.95). Spell out everything, she also advises.
