“Transitioning to the civilian work world can be filled with challenge, especially for those who don’t have a resume detailing their goals and objectives. That’s why Military-to-Civilian Resumes and Letters is so important…. Military and career libraries in particular will welcome this transitional title.”
By Carl S. Savino, Major, USAR (Ret.), and Ronald L. Krannich, Ph.D.
