Four Essential Documents for Your Military-to-Civilian Career Transition


There's a lot to consider and prioritize as you prepare to transition to the civilian workforce. As you decide how to go about your transition, one thing you can do to streamline the process is make sure to have the following four key documents ready for your recruiter. 

College Transcripts, if applicable
If you have completed college, request a copy of your College Transcripts from your undergraduate and/or graduate school(s). This does not need to be sealed, and an unofficial copy is fine.

Evaluation Reports
Send a copy of your last 3 observed reports to your Recruiter. We use these to get an idea of what you have accomplished in the military, and they are a great starting point in writing your resume. Additionally, reviewing your evaluations will help your Recruiter identify key points to highlight when preparing you for interviews.

Professional References
References should include the names and contact information of 2-3 supervisors and 3-4 peers. It is a good idea to let the person know that you would like to use them as a reference during your job search. Please note, they do not need to write you a letter of recommendation, they just need to be willing to answer a few questions over the phone and provide a quick review of your performance.

Resume
Most importantly, you'll need your resume. An Orion recruiter can help polish your resume. You can also find more tips here. 

Once you have these four documents, you’re ready to begin your job search. Good luck!
