Permanent “Leave Pass”
Are you leaving the military and ready to make the move to the civilian workforce? Ensure your transition is seamless by discussing your career objectives with Audrey, the Canadian professional résumé writer known for exceptional military-to-civilian career search document preparation. In fact, she captured the global title of Best Military Résumé. Audrey is still serving clients from her office in Trenton, Ontario. She is also at Base Borden and in Simcoe County on a regular basis. Military professionals from all CF Bases conveniently access her services through email and phone.
It can be somewhat overwhelming, shifting from the world of military processes and procedures, to the very different civilian work force. Changes are seldom easy for anyone. Service men and women who have contributed full and partial careers within the Armed Forces, Navy and Air Force, have trusted Audrey to prepare the effective documents they need to secure the jobs on Civvie Street. Many clients discuss their options and goals with Audrey before their release date. This allows plenty of time.

Money. This is one of the pivotal driving forces that motivates military professionals to submit release papers. They realize that their well defined skill-set commands a higher
remuneration and compensation package in private industry and in some cases, government positions than it does within the CF. Take the extra step to request Salary Negotiation Training. You have never had the opportunity to barter for your income. It was dictated to you from a salary grid, based on time served, rank and possibly "spec" pay. The civilian world opens up the opportunity to, for the first time, to get paid what you are worth.
Winning at negotiations begins with selling the value of your expertise during the job interview. Can you do this? Do know the strategies to achieve an average salary increase of 70, 80, or 90%?
Typically, military clients more than any other type of client, are hesitant to provide counter offers, barter for perks, benefits and expense accounts. They are used to accepting what has been assigned and carrying on with the job. But since you have the extensive training to warrant advanced income package, why not ask about negotiation guidance?
Résumé Resources is an extremely busy company with Audrey serving at the helm. Because Audrey personally serves each client, rest assured that your document will be perfectly customized and you'll have the confidence to win big with interviews and income negotiations. When you earn the worldwide title of Best Military Résumé™, along with Best Web Résumé™ Audrey can afford to pull rank and completely call the all of the shots. Her clients thank her for this take charge attitude!
