I am reformatting my resume to fall in line with the guidance from Career Tools. All of my work experience is military and with 32 years of service, moving every 2 years it's a few line items.
I'll get it on one page so that isn't the issue.
The question is dealing with translation of military job titles to civilian job titles.
To set the stage I decided to address the military service up front so that the reader will take into account that these are not traditional civilian jobs or job titles.
Taking line control into consideration I put this just under my name and address:
Commissioned Officer, United States Navy: 07/99 – present Enlisted Servicemember, United States Navy: 09/82 – 04/88; 05/89- 06/99
Then I listed my most current position.
Thoughts on how I should handle the translation?
