How to Cover Letter: Open Doors
with a Career Change Cover Letter

Before any employer looks at your veteran to civilian resume, they'll read your cover letter. A cover letter is an elegant way to introduce yourself. A career change cover letter, on the other hand, impresses and persuades.

There is no better chance to explain the value you will bring to the prospective employer.

A career change cover letter is your sales pitch. It should make the hiring manager want to turn the page to your accompanying resume. How do you do that? You forgo listing what you have done and instead detail what you can bring to the table. You're not conducting a "veteran job search" you're in the midst of a military to civilian transition. Because of that, you shouldn't write a personal history, but instead give your potential employer a preview of the great work you will do for them.

You need a career change cover letter when you want to leave the job you are in behind to move to a new direction. As your letter competes against others already in your new field of choice, your resume cover letter has to be a standout.
