I am retiring from the Army after a 20+ yr career in Logistics. I am applying for jobs in the UN which are Program Managers in Environmentally Sustainable Transportation and Planning.
Would you agree (or disagree) that on my CV I should put accomplishment that match the UN Job Competencies even if they weren't the core accomplishments I completed in that particular job. (ie: I managed an entire port (not relevant) and part of that was the Hazardous material management (relevant)... dont worry it is in verb-result-method format ;-)
My justification for doing this is: I am taking a step down in responsibility to get into other industry(UN) and thus much of the job's responsibilities are tasks I did while acomplishing bigger objectives; And it is the UN (big government type organization) and most of the hiring process seem to involve getting the right Key words into the resume'.
(Once I get to interview I can show them I have skills to program manage anything.. thanks to "interview series" podcasts!)
Any thoughts on shaping a CV for jumping to another industry? (which is what most military have to do!) Thanks in advance.
