Employers learn to understand military resumes


The interpretation of military resumes can be difficult for managers looking to hire former members of the military. A "learn-and-lunch" Wednesday in South Bend sought to remedy that.

Employers learned how to compare what a person did in the military to similar experiences in civilian life. It's a skill that's beneficial to both managers and their potential employees.

Maria Stancati of Goodwill Industries said, "Oh I definitely think so.  I definitely think so.  Folks coming home need to find employment.  They need to get back into civilian life."

Many employers said utilizing the talents and strong work ethic of returning military members can enhance a company's workforce.
