Nonverbal communication says a lot about you before you answer a single question. Eye contact, body language, the quality and tone of your voice, and how you move all work together to form an immediate impression. Make it a good one!
For those transitioning from the military, one of the primary challenges will be articulating how your military experience translates into civilian job expertise. You have likely become accustomed to military terminology that your civilian interviewer will not understand. Therefore it’s vital to learn how to sell yourself in a way that will win you the job.
In the military, training is critical to success. And in civilian job interviews, you also have to learn the protocols and develop the skills in order to excel. Many vets are surprised at how difficult the job hunt can be. Don’t expect interviewing to come naturally. You have to learn what they’re looking for and how to speak their language, how to show them that you are the best person for the job.
One of the best ways to determine what competencies and skills a civilian job is looking for is to analyze the job description. This lesson will teach you how to analyze job descriptions and match up your skills and experiences so you are only applying to the best possible positions for you.
Unfortunately, you probably will encounter interviewers who ask questions that they shouldn't. Interviewers should not ask anything about your military experience that isn’t directly related to your qualifications for the job in question. We’ll teach you how to handle these questions and keep the interview on track.
