It’s job candidates’ responsibility to clearly describe their skills and experiences, and put their best foot forward. With veterans, however, sometimes those talents aren’t always reflected on their resume. Why? One reason is that veterans' roles and job duties are different in the military world, with different terminology from the private sector. Another reason is that veterans may not fully articulate the scope of their experiences because they are trained not to be boastful. The overall result: a communication gap with hiring professionals.
