How to Demonstrate Your Skills to Civilian Employers
By Mike Lesczinski, Excelsior Life News Staff—
For many veterans, the transition from the military to the civilian workforce can be difficult. One of the challenges they encounter is how to effectively translate their previous skills and credentials when crafting a resume and preparing for a job interview. Many veterans are not aware of the valuable transferable skills they have developed during their military service -- and just how marketable these skills are to employers.
On March 19, the Center for Military Education at Excelsior College explored this topic and more during its “You’re Back - What’s Next?” quarterly webinar series. “How to Demonstrate Your Value to Civilian Employers” was presented by Maribeth Gunner, career services coordinator at Excelsior, and Judy Reed, director of veterans services and outreach.
