The purpose of a resume is to establish yourself as a viable candidate for the job you are seeking. You made the right decision to get a professional resume writer to help, but how can Veteran Mentors help you land the job you want? There is a widespread misconception that a resume is about you- It is not! A resume is a document that matches your unique skillsets to the job you want. If you are a recent graduate- Welcome! If you are tired of your existing role and need a new challenge- Welcome! If you are exiting the military and need a fresh perspective from someone that’s been in your boots- Welcome! YOUR skillsets are valuable; you know it and so do the ones that know you best. But what about the people who haven’t had a chance to appreciate you? What about all the missed career opportunities that you were perfect for? I am here to help you elevate your skillsets so you can show hiring managers your worth. You owe it to yourself to show them you are not just another candidate- You are the perfect candidate! -We Must Grow.
