Create a Career Catalog

What to Know

In order to display what you have to offer, you must provide facts about yourself. This requires you to gather information about yourself, your experience, training, accomplishments, personal information, military record, etc. One way to assemble and organize this data is by creating a Career Catalog. It is an up-to-date summary of your qualifications. Among the types of records you should collect in your Career Catalog are:

Military Service

  • Separation Papers, DD Form 214, DD Form 295
  • Training Record
  • Honors & Awards
  • DD Form 2586 – Verification of Military Experience and Training

  • Medical Record
