Hi, I’m Bruce Benedict, the founder & owner of Battlefield Resumes. I specialize in Federal Government and Defense Contractor employment. Whether you were an enlisted service member or a commissioned officer, I can help you with job searching, resume writing, interviewing, salary negotiation, and career coaching.
You’ve had elite training from the best military in the world, and now it’s time to transfer your expertise to the Federal Government and Defense Contracting sector. Seeking a job in these two sectors is not easy and requires an advisor who can help guide you to success.
I pride myself in being field tested in both Federal Government and Defense Contracting hiring processes – confident in tactical planning that supports you in maneuvering and mastering your next career. My philosophy: Help you find a job that aligns to what you enjoy.
Possibly for the first time in your working history, you are faced with job uncertainty. Your military career provided a framework for you to excel and provide for your family while achieving status and success. Your military career structure gave you clear paths to follow for rank and salary advancements. Military language, thinking, and strategy was defined and expected. You rarely, if ever, had to interview for your next job.
Now, as you transition out of the military, the civilian employment landscape feels like the Wild, Wild West with no clear or definable “next step.”
For the first time in your life, it’s up to you to make your next career move; and it has to be successful! How can you, as a proud veteran with an elite skillset, be understood by recruiters and hiring managers in the vague world of civilian employment?
That’s where I have your back. I have created a system, based on military doctrine, that will quickly and effortlessly educate and coach you to win this “civilian war” by getting the job you want at the highest salary possible.
It is not uncommon for job resume writing services to mistranslate military experience into civilian language. In many cases, the veteran isn’t even involved in the resume-writing process, leaving them with a completed resume that is not in ethical alignment with who they are, while creating internal turmoil that they may be misrepresenting themselves to employers.
Battlefield Resumes flips that game on its head by using your military career to your strategic advantage. As your coach, I guide you every step of the way. Together we job search, build your resume, and translate your skills to ensure you are not only comfortable with the translation process but also feel confident that you can answer ANY question asked to you when in your interview.
My unique strategy is called the Battlefield Resume Methodology (BRM).
I help you focus on targeting jobs within the Federal Government and Defense Contracting sectors, such as the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community. These types of jobs have many recruiters who were prior-military, so your customized Battlefield Résumé is quickly appreciated and easily understood by those who want your background, language, loyalty, work ethic, 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. If you need assistance, I can help coach and guide you in tailoring and targeting it for the job you want. My goal for you is to make sure you can preserve the lifestyle you have earned.
You’ve already learned how to navigate your way through uncertainty and adversity. Now it’s time to bulletproof your résumé. Similarly to preparing for your military missions; only this time you’ll use Battlefield Resume Methodology.
Aim accurately at your next career!
