CV, Military Bio, and Letter of Intent Templates

Posted on Updated 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:

CAPT Schofer CV – 5 MAY 2020

Here is my military bio:

CAPT Schofer Military Bio – 5 MAY 2020

Here is an old LOI I’ve used:

CDR Schofer LOI

Here is a LOI template created by CDR Melissa Austin when she was an EA:

    CDR Schofer. Two comments:

    1) your personal cellphone is in your posted CV
    2) double spaces still with a proportional font!?! –

    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.

      One is usually not allowed to use command letterhead unless you are the commander/CO or have by-direction authority and the purposes of the letterhead are representative as to the command as a whole. Most letters, then, also would require serialization.
