Like CW4 (Join to see) said, you need to sell yourself to the specific job you're looking for. Start off each job hunt with a blank resume (apart from name/address and standard info), and never use the same exact resume twice. Print off the job announcement, and highlight how your specific experience fits exactly what the company advertised they're looking for. Don't fill up space on your package with things they don't care about. We all have skills that aren't in our official military job description. If you need planning skills and time management, I was the NCOIC of Scheduling for a squadron of 200+ people with requirements for 20+ events annually. If you need someone who responds under pressure, my crew duties included emergency procedures aboard a multi-million dollar aircraft at 30K feet with over 20 souls on board. Don't ever lie, but the beautiful thing is that many interviewers won't know your exact experience in the military. So, take your experiences, and convince the person who holds your future in their hands that you're exactly who they're looking for.
