It sounds like he is very qualified and has some very valuable skills. However he will likely have to be like most other people and make some compromise on what type of job and location he takes. He likely have to try to find a job in the off-base or and nonmilitary civilian sector.

It sounds like he has a lot of skills that would apply to a lot of different types of jobs so he has much versatility. However he might have to take a moderate diversion from the job he is used to working.

Often there are civilian sector jobs that are similar to the jobs that they lasted in the military.

Such as a recruiter should be able to fairly easily transition to a civilian employment agency as a “headhunter”.

It sounds like your husband could probably find employment in the civilian sector of aviation maintenance or manufacturing. If not he has skills that can be easily used in other professions.

Looks like an AFPC resume, same basic format as mine that I get bites on. Might have missed it but include the fact that he has or recently had a Security Clearance, companies like that. If you are submitting it to places other than AFPC get rid of the stuff that is not necessary like the 1-13 stuff at the bottom, if it's important include it within the other sections. Keep trying you guys will get a bite, and be willing to move.

I agree with akruse21, absolutely get rid of the "some elementary school".

No need for the "40 Hours/ week" It's understood that the military is a full time job if you are active duty.

No need for semester hours in the college degrees. The degree is all that counts, though keep the GPA. 4.0 is a great accomplishment.

Apply online to Boeing, Lockheed, Northrop, etc........

I have a short bullet version that my company uses. He may be able to use this format to open the door and then use the more in-depth version at the interview.

Thanks for all the responses! And the sample resume as well!
There has been a hiring freeze in this area for a while now and it sucks! We don't want to move unless we absolutely have to because our son has a few medical issues and we are right in th middle of his specialists. We drive to Ok City every 6 weeks for one and to Ft Worth every 3 months for another...

i don't guess he has, he was an instructor at Sheppard forever it seemed, then he did a year and a half in Oklahoma City doing whatever it was they cross trained him for ( i know nothing about the military can you tell, lol)...
I know he's *hoping* to get on as an instructor again t Sheppard since we live here, a lot of people we know retired here before him and did the same, we just had bad timing and a hiring freeze when he got out... he says he is up for anything that pays well though..

First of all, keep the resume directed to just the facts, reduce the amount of writing. Stay on top of the opennings at Sheppard and keep applying. Take whatever you get selected - key is to get your foot in. On the flip side, if your husband stepped on any toes while stationed there, it might take awhile to get hired. Have your husband visit his last place of employment so they can remember him. This helps!
Since he has no BA degree, apply to jobs coded 1712.
Good luck,
:D

I'm very surprised he couldn't get anything at Lockheed Ft. Worth? Have you tried to apply on the lmco.com website under careers? They offer pretty decent wages but it is cyclical and on a contract basis, most of the time

He had an interview with them but it was for a job down in San Antonio... we drove down to Lackland ( i think?) for the interview and all but they wound up hiring someone with out a family? They wanted him to start the job within 1 week and be moved down there... our lease wasn't up for 3 months and they didn't offer any sort of moving bonus or help with any of that, so they hired the single guy, lol....

Now that he is retired you will see how different it is on the outside. No more moving expenses and even less pay in some cases.
For my last move I went ahead and set everything up before bringing my family. My wife picked out a house (rental) and I moved on up with most of the stuff. After I was in and working she came up and moved in.
Stay flexible and you may have to sacrifice some before your completely settled again.
He may look into the Reserves or Guard for full time employment.
If he does this is what you can expect.
His retirement pay will stop. He will most likely pick up where he left off in pay grade and if he is full time will collect pay as Civil Service employee along with his military grade on duty weekends.
If he joins the Guard he will have an option to convert to AGR status. Which means he will be on active duty again only working for the Guard.
His active duty time will transfer over to Civil Service and when he retires from CS he will have full benefits.
He can retire from the military at age 60 but continue with CS till age 62.
If he takes a GS job in CS he will not have to join the Res. or Guard, but he will still loose his retirement pay.
You cannot collect Federal Pay from two places at one time.
So there are your options, hope it works out for you.
