The staff behind the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Personal Branding Resume Engine say their goal isn’t just to help build better resumes for veterans, but to also help them think more like a civilian job applicant when discussing their military skills.

Here’s a look at how they see military jobs can be better marketed to unfamiliar civilian businesses:

Infantryman. “Trained, led and supervised subordinate personnel. Received and implemented combat orders.” Armor crewman. “Led, supervised and served as a member of an armor unit in offensive and defensive combat operations. Served and assisted on staffs at battalion level and higher.” Cavalry scout. “Led and served as a member of an investigative team. Assisted junior personnel in perfecting their roles and contributions.” Military police. “Provided battlefield support by conducting area security and law and order operations. Secured critical resources and administered crime prevention programs.” Human resources. “Managed and performed personnel and administrative functions. Participated in occupational classification and advised department managers.” Fire support. “Led, supervised and participated in intelligence activities including target processing. Assisted sergeant in training of subordinates.”
