    Resume style for veteran
    How would this resume apply to a Veteran who has been out of school for the last 7 yrs but has additional education and job experience outside of high school?

    The resume style can be changed to fit whatever is needed. I had adapted a standard resume to work for a high school student's college application. Do you want to see a standard resume for a job seeker who has been out in the workworld for a while?

    Can you use the one I had posted (for the FSU applicant) as as guide for yourself?

    Do you want me to post a standard one?

    I can use the old one I just was curious where it all would fit on there. I don't know if giving school supplies to the local population fell under community service or employment, should I list all my medals under awards and honors, and how would you word I went and did forensic evidence collection and mortuary affairs? Does it even matter that I qualified expert on marksmanship skills every year since 2003?

    You can put all or most of that on a one-page resume. I'll post a standard one in a few minutes, and we can talk about adding your specifics to it.
