Should Veterans Leave the Military Service Off Their Resume?

Military.com
Veterans should keep military service on their resumes.

However, there are some things to consider when including military service on a resume.

First, veterans should clearly explain their accomplishments and their working experience. Applicants should include which skills they have learned through military experience that fit the job they are applying for.

Secondly, veterans should use language that civilian employers will understand. Hiring committees may not be familiar with military language. Translating military language and titles will be beneficial in a job search.
