“I wanted to thank you for the coaching you gave me.

I ended up being given an offer that was 10K over the top salary range listed, plus a 10K signing bonus and a relocation package, not bad.

I’m very excited for this opportunity to work for a great company and looking forward to starting in two weeks.

Civilians don’t understand your acronyms, MOS, and military terminology, and they aren’t going to take the time to learn. Seek out someone from the desired industry and have them review your resume. Or, use a job skills translator such as the one on Many companies use software to screen the applicant pool. If the software finds words that don’t align with the industry, like military jargon, your resume will get kicked out.
