CV, Military Bio, and Letter of Intent Templates

Posted on

Every nominative position requires you to submit a CV, military bio, and letter of intent (LOI), so I always have these documents ready.  People are always e-mailing me and asking for templates, so here are some Word documents you can use as you see fit.  I’ll also put them in the Useful Documents page.

For CVs there are many, many acceptable formats.  Here is my personal CV and the format the Uniformed Services University wants when you apply for promotion:

CDR Schofer CV – 26 JUL 2017

CDR Schofer CV – USUHS Format – JAN 2017

Here is my military bio:

CDR Schofer Military Bio – 27 JUN 2017

Here is a recent LOI I’ve used.  Is this format 100% in line with the Navy Correspondence Manual?  Probably not.  Is it good enough for government work?  Probably:

CDR Schofer LOI

    CDR Schofer. Two comments:

    1) your personal cellphone is in your posted CV
    2) double spaces still with a proportional font!?! – http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/technology/2011/01/space_invaders.html

    CDR Schofer,

    I continue to be impressed by your work with the MC Career Blog. It is a testament to your leadership and desire to help people grow in their professional lives. I joined the Navy 17 years ago, first spending 10 years in the line community as an NFO, and then laterally transferring to the MC.

    I just completed a year as Chief Resident, and your website was a daily reminder of why I wanted to take on the role. I finally got my own website up and running after being inspired by you for the past few years.

    Thank you for the motivation and inspiration to keep serving.

    Wishing you all the best.
