I started my recruiting career in 1997. Since my first week on the job, I remember trying to help returning vets with a career move or a job search. I just thought it was the right thing to do. I didn't have direction or a strategy, so I'd look at their resumes, call them up and start the conversation. I'd do my best to talk to a few per week and see if I could make a match against a few job descriptions our clients had out there.
Something kept coming up. I came to the conclusion, way back then, that our military veterans think about a curriculum vitae very differently than non-military civilians. Sometimes they were more technical, sometimes formatted differently. Sometimes the technical terms and nuances were overwhelming to a point where I knew there would be challenges getting civilian hiring managers to understand how these people could help, simply.
Twenty-one years later we have the same challenges we had decades before. There's a crevasse between what military vets can bring to the table and how a resume describes all of it without that veteran having a chance to offer context.
