Career Center to support Veterans/Military Members with Resume Development

Date: October 21, 2013

Many veterans struggle to convert military skills and experiences into language that is readily understood by civilian employers.

To assist GVSU’s current and former Servicemembers with producing a highly effective resume, the Career Center will be  hosting an on-campus consultant to assist with resume development.

Grand Valley State University has partnered with Compass Point, to offer the following:

  • Specialized knowledge with developing resumes that effectively convert military backgrounds to civilian applications
  • One-on-One consultations
  • Packaging of veteran tax credits for employers into personal resume/background information (provides extra incentive for organizations to hire veterans)  
  • Active links to organizations that seek to hire veterans
  • Schedule will alternate between Allendale and GR locations
  • Free to students, as well as GV
  • By appointment only
