Posted by Rob Riggins

David Sims, an Air Force veteran and hiring manager for NOVA Corporation, took time away from his duties at a recent Cleared Job Fair to share some tips for transitioning military. Nova Corporation is a Native-American tribally-owned defense contractor that provides benefits to the Navajo people through education and housing programs.  

As a hiring manager who has seen the mistakes that transitioning military often make in a job search, David shared these recommendations:

–      Avoid military jargon and civilianize your resume.

–      Obtain industry-level certifications if you’re an information assurance professional.

–      Attend as many job fairs and networking events as you can.

–      Make sure you have a professional appearance. If you’re not sure what that entails, ask for help.
