Just wondering if I should put my rank in the header of my resume with my name?
I still would not attach rank to my name as a formal title on a civil resume. It might be appropriate to include in the resume other places like the chronology or jobs held. . .Deuce130 said:Why wouldn't you? If you were a Captain at a previous airline, you'd put Captain. If you're an AC in the military, you'd put AC. If you were a middle manager/supervisor at a civilian company, you'd put that. If you were a detective/seargent/lt/capt at on a police force, you'd put that. My point being, is that I'm sure anyone would highlight the laundry list of accomplishments or positions they held in the military or any previous company. Rank is part of that. I don't buy that civvy HR types will automatically assume that Major so and so is full of himself, self-important, or can't wait to come into their company and clean house. Your rank is an accomplishment that you earned, so putting it on your resume is warranted. I wouldn't list it in the header, but I would definitely put it in the body. Any company that throws out a resume b/c it listed rank on there isn't worth flying for anyway. And neither is any company that just wants dumb pilots flying for it.
