Re: Resume language
One would think. But many of the skills vets learn are as much about procedures as technology, and on systems that are unique to military operations.  So familiarity with using SMEPEDs, for instance, (Secure Mobile Environment Portable Electronic Devices) on classified networks just doesn't translate easily in the civiliam world.

Resume language
That statistics cited here show the veterans are having a hard time describing their experiences and the hiring managers are having trouble translating it. Why such a language gap? Surely many veterans have security, mobile, and big data skills to bring to the table -- all hot skills in today's IT job market.
