Bruce Benedict, the owner of Battlefield Résumés, LLC developed the Battlefield Résumé Methodology (BRM) to help veterans and transitioning military, as well as those who help them, easily translate military experience (aka: Battlefield Résumé) into civilian language. Bruce, like you, is a veteran and knows that veterans have the drive, motivation, and energy to transition successfully and obtain civilian employment. The BRM helps veterans, employers, and career counselors tailor and target the veteran's Battlefield Résumé (military experience) in an efficient and effective way to ensure their time is productively spent. By using the BRM, Bruce has deciphered the military language and cracked the code on military-to-civilian employment. By leverages military doctrine and strategy, he has created an easily understandable and relatable system that will help lessen the anxiety and stress when transitioning Battlefield Résumés into the civilian workforce.
