Targeting your resume

Canada's Building & Construction Unions have a lot to offer Canada's Veterans

Get started
  • First, determine your specific trade
  • Next, focus your resume on that trade or occupation, and what's relevant for the position you're applying for, and eliminate details and duties that don’t focus on skills the potential employer seeks
  • Use your job descriptions to emphasize challenges, actions, and results
  • Translate your resume into civilian terms. Never use military jargon or acronymns!
  • Limit your resume from 1-2 pages
  • Don't include your mailing address, use a professional email
  • Don't include references
