Martinsburg College is committed to assisting our graduates in the next steps of their careers. Upon completion of the program, each graduate is provided with a Post-Graduation Plan. Whether you are a military spouse looking to embark on a career or a military service member ready to transition from the military, the Post-Graduation Plan is designed to provide each graduate with a step-by-step guide to assist them in their career planning and development.
Highlights of the Post-Graduation Plan
Military Skills Translator – Career service members who are planning to transition from the military will need to “translate” their military skills for civilian employers. The key is to make sure you create a resume that emphasizes your skills, accomplishments, and experience in terms that a civilian employer will understand. The Post-Graduation Plan provides detailed information and guidance for military service members to make sure their military skills and experience are applicable to the civilian workplace.
Military to Civilian Resume – You may not have had to write a resume for some time while in the military and you may never have had to write a resume for a civilian job. The Post-Graduation Plan provides sample Military-to-Civilian resumes and “how to’s” for putting together a great resume.
Honing your Interview Skills – Follow the step-by-step guide to make sure you’re fully prepared for the interview.
Writing a Resume when you’re a Military Spouse – Information and resume templates designed to assist military spouses on preparing a resume.
No-Fee Job Subscription Service available for Graduates and Members of the Military Community
Martinsburg College provides its graduates and members of the military community with a subscription to a job listing service at no cost. Service Members, Veterans and Spouses can sign up for the service and receive job listings from employers who are actively looking to recruit military members and spouses.
While Martinsburg College provides the career services listed above, the institution does not provide direct placement services.
