Operations Production Cover Letter Writing
Production and Operations are great transitional fields for those moving from military to civilian jobs. This can be especially true for those individuals that had spent a lot of their military career in battle. These are people that understand organization, strategy and logistics. If you can move soldiers in battle then you can help a producer in the private sector.
Otherwise, there are lot of military professionals that worked in logistics and already have direct experience moving supplies from one point to the other. In the military the goal isn’t profitability, so you may not have many accomplishments tied to revenue. But if you have moved supplies or moved soldiers and your actions led to a positive result, then make sure to emphasize this on the cover letter.
