In today's hyper-competitive job market, it's not enough to have military experience. You need to be able to communicate your unique strengths, skills, and experience in civilian terms—with clarity—to stand out and grab that top spot.
Thanks to new recruiter software, getting past the gatekeepers to a great civilian or government job is harder than ever. To land your dream job—or any position—you have to invest in the right things. Here are the details that set top transitioning service members apart to future employers.
OPTIMIZE YOUR RESUME
IN A DIGITAL WORLD, YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION MATTERS
Did you know that even before a real human even sees your resume, it's deconstructed and fed into computers that tag your qualifications with keywords in their database? That's why it's essential to "optimize" your resume and cover letter to include the exact, precise phrases you find in the job description. Be the candidate that shows up as "the perfect match."
DO YOUR HOMEWORK
PREP AS IF THIS IS THE ONLY JOB YOU'VE EVER WANTED
Not going to sugar-coat this bit: The odds are against you to land that job. That coveted position is being aggressively pursued by many other qualified applicants with similar experiences and skills as you—maybe more. But you can make a memorable impression by doing your homework online and learning as much about the company and employees as possible (especially the ones who will be interviewing you). Find some commonalities to break the ice in a powerfully connective way. Be the candidate who "went the extra mile."
LEVERAGE YOUR CONNECTIONS
GATHER REFERRALS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The stats don't lie. Every year thousands of applications get passed over in favor of a candidate who slipped to the front of the line through a word-of-mouth recommendation. Think of it this way: If you had to trust a prized object to a stranger or to someone who was recommended by a friend or colleague, who would you trust first? For that reason, make use of social networks, letters of recommendation and personal connections. Be the candidate that came in with "a solid referral."
PRACTICE YOUR ELEVATOR PITCH
CRAFT A CONCISE SENTENCE THAT INSTANTLY INTRIGUES AND OPENS DISCUSSION
In a world of canned, jargon-filled laundry-list of "right answers," the candidates that stand out are those who are "originals." When you describe your accomplishments, inject personality, verve, and a few choice and uncommonly descriptive words to perk ears and make interviewers sit up and take notice. Frame your experience and character in a story that connects the dots for the interviewer. Be the candidate that they can "envision already doing the job."
CRAFT YOUR BACKSTORY
KNOW YOUR STATS, FRAME YOUR FACTS
Every other applicant will claim experience in the areas required—but only you have specific stats and facts that speak to your personal experience. So don't just list your skills, paint a picture and illustrate the impact, quantify achievements with numbers, and vividly describe the tangible results in a before/after or problem/solution storytelling format. Leave your listeners begging for an encore... as one of their own employees.
WHERE TO START
WHAT IF YOU COULD PULL TOGETHER YOUR PERSONAL BRAND IN ONE DAY?

Thankfully, there IS a proven way to lock in your dream career using a science-backed method that generates instant results!
What will you say next when all eyes are on you?

YOUR POWERFUL STORY IS THE SINGLE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO LEAVE A LASTING IMPRESSION
Most job seekers struggle to get noticed in the applicant pool—but not you.
There are 8 million displaced workers in the United States all trying diligently to get back into the workforce. But so many times they don't get the call back.
Even the most experienced professionals don't know how to stand out and market themselves—it's not something that most of us were taught.
This leads to disheartened job seekers who are unsure what steps to take to succeed. Thankfully, it does not have to be this way.

"An eye-opening experience for me"
Hear This Amazing True Story...
"I have always been a protective person taking care of everyone in my unit, so it was no surprise that my Success Symbol was The Guardian.
"However, the REAL magic happened when I worked through the Power-Pitch Generator. I had no idea The Guardian was also a leader and a highly desired personality in a civilian team environment.
"The Quiggle Assessment was an eye-opening experience for me because it made me realize I can lead a work group in my way.
"By using keywords and a powerful hook, I was able to articulate my strengths in civilian and corporate terms with ease. I embraced my conscientious, authentic, and caring personality and understood how strongly I believed in bringing multiple people together to achieve an optimal outcome.
"THE DAY AFTER I TOOK THE QUIGGLE ASSESSMENT…
"I had an interview for this fellowship, and one of the first questions the directors asked me was, "What do you think it takes to be a leader?"
"I confidently responded by telling them how I led, rather than generic personality strengths everybody mentions when they think of leadership. I used my Success Story and said, "The way I lead is by collaboration. I believe when you pull the team together and get them working towards the same goals, you will have greater success."
"I was excited that I had stellar answers to all their questions and that my responses highlighted my personality. I walked away from the interview with assurance.
"A WEEK LATER, I GOT THE POSITION.
"Since then, I have encouraged many friends to take The Quiggle Assessment. I'm very grateful for how much more confidence I have in myself and all my future endeavors. " —Jarvis W.

The Only Personality Profiler expressly Designed For Career Advancement
IF YOU'VE TRIED OTHERS, HOW WELL DID THEY PREPARE YOU TO SUCCEED ON THE JOB?
Can you articulate inspirational stories about what you have to offer in civilian terms?
Do potential employers comprehend how you can make a positive impact in their company?
Have you aligned your strengths and developed a dynamic hook?
Are your resumes, bios, and cover letters original, impactful and tuned in to the civilian world?
Do you have a power pitch to describe your authentic self?
Do you know the success adjectives to describe your value and leadership?
Hiring doesn't happen in a vacuum. To get the offer, you need to paint a compelling picture, frame it consistently, back it up with facts then show up as your authentic self.
The Quiggle Assessment is the ONLY tool that will give you the EXACT words to say and the way to say it, so your future employer will instantly SEE the value you can add to their existing team.
Only YOU can position yourself as the hero of your own story
We're all natural leaders but is up to YOU to learn how to present your gifts and talents to the world so you're recognized for them. The Quiggle Assessment helps you do just that. You can choose how to unfold the narrative about your life, your skills, your passions and pursuits—and line them up with your ideal job. A huge task—made easy with the Quiggle Assessment.
This is a time of tightening belts and budget re-allocation. It seems like splurging on a new program is not the best course for you right now. And this assessment may seem expensive. An unnecessary luxury.
We get it.
But have you thought about this? The longer you go without a job, sending out resumes and getting little to no responses, the more you delay living your best life now.
Because you’re not the only one applying for those positions: Algorithms bypass resumes that lack the keywords they are searching for, and hiring managers are looking for reasons to skip over you, weeding through their stacks to find the rare unicorn that’s the perfect match.
That's when it pays to invest in the critical “it” factor that can't be faked—YOUR AUTHENTIC, FULLY EXPRESSED ABILITY, SIGNALED INSTANTLY IN A WAY THAT STOPS THE SEARCH.
We love hearing the stories of how taking The Quiggle Assessment has led to the confidence and communication panache that lead to great career opportunities opening up in a matter of days.
Not months. Not years. OVERNIGHT.
Imagine waking up tomorrow, knowing exactly how to show up to any interview as your personal best.
That’s the kind of transformation The Quiggle Assessment has produced, over and over again.
ISN'T YOUR FUTURE WORTH THE COST?
Sure, there are cheaper assessments, but NONE of them give you the CAREER advantage of a personal power pitch, nor would you be better able to articulate your strengths, weaknesses and leadership style. If you hired an executive career coach it would cost TWICE as much.
HOW MUCH HAVE YOU SPENT ON YOUR JOB SEARCH SO FAR?
Think of the hundreds and thousands of dollars you invest in technology, clothes, accessories, and all the little luxuries—how much have they improved your career path?
The truth is, without your dream job and a satisfying career path, none of these indulgences matter.
Invest instead in the one asset that will allow your INNER truth to shine forth, and secure that once-in-a-iifetime opportunity with bold confidence, clarity and passion.
You could spend thousands on a life coach or workshop, but we believe best-of-class strategy and interview skills shouldn't cost exorbitant fees. So we've created our turnkey Quiggle Assessment at a price-point that beats any comparable online course or career coaching session.
With so much to gain at such a small investment, who can afford NOT to act on the opportunity—it's knocking!
AND IF YOU'RE NOT BETTING ON YOURSELF TO SUCCEED—WHO IS?
For a low, one-time cost you could be living your best life tomorrow.
