installing, configuring, and troubleshooting computer systems within the wing. Using the

computer work order system, I planned the delivery of customer support based on the priority

of the need to the customer and the base as a whole. I developed a system to track, report

and resolve problems using historical problem data and projected needs information. I also

planned training classes for new software introduced as well as to address common

problem areas. Fluent in the use of various computer languages such as C/C++ and

Java.

common errors
Common Errors
  • No Specific Dates: Must give us at least month and year.

If only giving year, we can only credit one day of that year.

  • Not Specific on Duties: Must give us enough information to see the

specialized requirements in the job you did.

  • Generic Resumes: One resume is used for a variety of jobs. Will work if

you are very specific and you are able to document the general/specialized experience and KSA factors for all jobs you are interested in. However, that is not very common.

  • Not showing both military and civilian experience: List ALL related

civilian and military job experience related to position applying for. The relevant

military experience you show may make the difference as to whether or not you

are qualified.Specify whether experience was part-time or full-time.

suggestions
Suggestions
  • No need to attach recommendation letters, certificates,

transcripts, or any other documentation (unless specifically required in Job Announcement). Take them to the interview.

  • Let a Second Pair of Eyes Look Over Your Resume/Application. The use of HRO Staffing Personnel is highly recommended
  • Read and Re-Read. Make sure you have everything

that is required in the announcement (i.e. correct forms/attachments).

  • Check our web site for position description (PD) and current vacancies. The website is: www.dma.mt.gov/hro/
  • Fully comply with the “How to Apply” section of the job announcement, many jobs require different types of attached documents
