A resume is much more than just a listing of your recent job experiences. It should highlight your skills, specialties, expertise, and experience. A well-written resume informs the potential employer how you can contribute to both the job and the workplace. Rosemary Williams, an ambassador for Hiring our Heroes at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, will describe in “Resume Writing for Military Spouses” the importance of a resume, define different types of resumes, and tailor a resume for a specific job or employer. Our hope is that you will walk away with a strong understanding of how to format, structure, and design a resume that will articulate your skills and abilities and favorably match you to an ideal position.
Military spouses face unemployment rates much higher than the national average of their non-military connected counterparts.

By the end of this course, “Resume Writing for Military Spouses,” presenter Rosemary Williams will have shown you how to: understand the importance of a resume, define different types of resumes, and tailor a resume for a specific job or employer.
