Transitioning from Military to Civilian life? Trust your resume to Canada’s only Certified Resume Specialist in Military-to-Civilian Transitions.
Military professionals face unique challenges when transitioning to a civilian career. Not only have many never written a resume before, but they are stuck trying to describe jobs and skillsets not well understood by most civilian employers. At Best Foot Forward, we are aware of the needs of transitioning military professionals, and qualified to assist you. Owner Natalie MacLellan is not only Canada’s first and only Certified Resume Specialist – Military to Civilian Transitions, she is a military spouse, and well accustomed to the lifestyle.
We don't just work with military members. Understanding the effect that frequent postings can have on a military spouse's career, we are well trained to assist military (or RCMP) spouses with resume creation. Our approach ensures that resume gaps and perceived "job-hopping" will not affect your job search success.
Best Foot Forward is a proud member of the Canadian Forces Appreciation Program and we offer a 15% discount to military members and their immediate family members with presentation of a CFOne card.
