Military Background (Supervisor) Resume

When a supervisor's resume shows military background, the candidate's application holds great advantage, but there's a fair possibility that the value may go unnoticed if the application isn't drafted with care. Enhancement, coupled with delivery, will bring into light the significant elements pertaining to your professional qualification, and zoom in on your character as a disciplined, sincere, confident, and humane individual. A desirable profile is what you have to project; your qualities and capabilities must stand out, drawing a clear outline of your career history. In most cases, it's the career objective that draws the attention of the reader. While it acts as an official title to your resume, it also puts forth your professional interests and aspirations. Having served for the military is quite an experience in itself; however, it needs to be highlighted with care, so as to retain its value, or may be even optimize it a little, without manipulating the details of course.

Your application is a strong medium for communication and a written expression of your intentions. Organize all your thoughts carefully, picking only those aspects that hold utmost relevance to the job specification here. It's also a great practice to contact the employer/recruiter beforehand and discuss his needs. Check the company's website and grasp their vision. This will guide you in presenting your skills and abilities productively. Following your objective, include a profile summary, where you need to mention 6-8 points that reflect your professional background. State your previous role as a military professional, and your supervisory role in a specified profession. Highlight them using bullets for better visibility. Then, include a section that is dedicated to showcasing your key skills and strengths, projecting your proficiency and knowledge in the supervisory functions of any given industry.

Often it becomes difficult to cover all the significant points within these two sections. If you still have important points specific to your previous job responsibilities, you may as well include a couple bulleted points, while stating the fundamental details such as the name and location of your employer and your designation and duration within the company. Remember that all dated information should be arranged in a reverse chronological order, so as to feature the recent events on top. Following your employment history, state your educational qualification, without getting deep into the details such as the course modules and subject details. If you wish to include the details of any awards or rewards that you have earned so far, then you may do so as a separate section called accomplishments, or you may even include it in your profile summary, depending upon the number of points you have in hand to mention.
