Who We Are
Helping American Patriots… One Federal Résumé at a Time
Battlefield Resumes specializes in creating momentum for your job search. As a senior NCO, Commissioned Officer or Chief Warrant Officer, we educate you to produce the most effective resume and interviewing readiness for targeting your post-military job.
You’ve had elite training from the best military in the world and now it’s time to transfer your expertise to the civilian sector. As a veteran seeking a job in an entirely different work culture, you need top notch direction on how to be successful in this new foreign territory.
We pride ourselves in being field tested – confident in a specific tactical plan to support you in maneuvering and mastering your job hunt. Our philosophy: Why go into a job that doesn’t understand you?
Your military career structure gave you a known path to follow for rank and salary advancements. Someone in the Department of Defense would let you know your orders about 6 months prior to your next job. Military language, thinking, and strategy was defined and expected. You rarely, if ever, had to interview for your next job. Now, as you retire from your military position, the civilian employment landscape feels like the Wild West with no clear or definable “next step”.
For the first time in your career history, it’s solely on you with your arsenal of skills to make your next career move happen. How can you, as a proud veteran with an elite skillset, be understood by recruiters in the vague world of civilian employment?
That’s where Battlefield Resumes has your back. We educate and coach you to win.
It is not uncommon for resume writing services to mistranslate military expertise into civilian language. In many cases, the veteran isn’t even involved in their own resume-writing process, leaving them with a completed resume that is not in ethical alignment with who they are, creating internal turmoil that they may be misrepresenting themselves to employers.
We flip that game on its head focusing on using your military career to your strategic advantage. We involve veterans with care and focus as we build their resumes to insure they are not only comfortable with the translation process, but also feel confident that they can answer ANY question asked to them about their resume.
This unique strategy is called the Battlefield Resume Methodology (BRM).
Battlefield Resumes are specifically designed for military “lifers” in the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Reserves and National Guard which includes those with 10+ years in service (Enlisted E6-E9, Commissioned Officer O3-O5 and Chief Warrant CWO3-CWO5).
We dominantly focus on targeting jobs in several governmental sectors including the Department of Defense (DoD) as well as defense contracting. Many of their recruiters are prior-military themselves, so your customized Battlefield Resume can be appreciated by those who understand your background, language and dedication.
How does the methodology work?
Capitalizing on the expertise you’ve developed in every level of your military career, you build your resume with downloadable bullets – skills and capabilities pre-written and customizable for every military position you’ve held. Your customized resume can then be tailored by our resume writers for targeted jobs including your most enjoyed competencies, skills and activities, making every effort to preserve the lifestyle you have earned. We also coach you every step of the way for the other job search skills you’ll need beyond your resume.
You’ve already learned how to be tactical when facing uncertainty and adversity. Bulletproof your job search the same way as you would strategize for any mission by using Battlefield Resume Methodology.
