JACKSONVILLE, N.C. - Nov. 7, 2017 - PRLog -- Jaynine Howard, owner of JJ Howard & Associates was honored to contribute her insights to an article published on As a Marine Corps veteran Jaynine's no-nonsense approach to job hunting and her gift for resume writing has resulted in getting the phone ringing within 20 minutes of creating a LinkedIn profile, within 7 minutes of faxing a resume, and within 40 minutes of posting a resume online. Her resumes and career strategies help clients get jobs and promotions.

Howard reminds us that "The person reading your resume must be able to understand what [you] can do," Howard says. "Using civilian job titles and duties is the first step. Veterans need to remember that the reader may not know what they did in the military, so they need to be very specific and use civilian language if the employer is a civilian employer."

She also offered tips for looking for employment. Howard suggests veterans reach out to manufacturers of any specialized equipment they may have worked closely within the military, as their knowledge will go a long way in proving their value right off the bat. She also cautions against automatically gravitating toward companies that advertise themselves as "veteran-friendly." "Many companies will profess they are 'military-friendly,' but be careful and find out what that really means," Howard says. "Some companies hire veterans, but the positions are part-time and [pay] minimum wage."
