Information Technology at Nestlé North America values an inclusive culture and a diverse set of backgrounds. Talent from every branch of the military service complements our agile and innovative environment in many ways. Military service members offer skills such as the ability to adapt, work well under pressure, lead through integrity, and enable others to learn and grow. The unique assets gained from an inclusive and diverse culture help us better serve our customers.
As civilians, there is one thing we are certain of regarding your military background—a résumé doesn't do your experience enough justice. However, it's your ticket into the recruiting process, whether it be at Nestlé or someplace else, so we hope these insights will help you craft your military/professional story.
A long-time theory and written rule exists that one-page résumés are a best practice, but times have changed. The real rule to effective résumé writing is about being strategic with what you include, not how much.
If you have several years of military or civilian experience behind you, we expect that will come with a longer, more detailed résumé. In fact, it is perfectly acceptable, if not suggested, to have different versions of your résumé—each tailored to the civilian jobs in which you apply for.
In other words, you may qualify for different types of jobs, like an IS/IT Project Manager and also a Systems Analyst, but that doesn't mean you would share details about your experience or skills in the same way for each of these roles. For the jobs in which you choose to apply for, read the job posting carefully to fully understand the responsibilities and skills needed. Read between the lines when viewing a job posting—what are the different listed responsibilities suggesting you need in terms of aptitude and skill set? This will also help you think through how to detail examples and key wins within your résumé that relate directly to the posting.
Your vast military experience gives you a uniquely diverse background that we're excited to learn more about. However, your ranking and responsibilities may not clearly indicate what your civilian career aspirations are. Including a concise objective statement can help summarize what you hope to do next, how your skills might make you a strong fit for the job, and suggest where (geographically) you plan to work. As a large percentage of transitioning service members consider moving geographies to begin a civilian lifestyle, it is important to consider ways in which you can show localization. For example, list your intention within the objective statement to relocate cities/states by a particular date so recruiters and hiring managers have a better understanding of your availability and proximity.
As recruiters and talent sourcers, we do our homework so we're prepared to review résumés with military experience and conduct interviews with service members/veterans like you. It's important to us that we can understand and relate to you. However, we certainly won't know everything. Without compromising the content of your résumé, think about how you can translate military vocabulary into civilian-speak so we can further discover how your accomplishments can translate to the job. Skills translators, like Résumé Engine, can serve as an effective tool to assist in this process.
You would never think to enter combat without making sure you have all of your equipment, and that everything functions how it should. While not nearly as risky, this is no different. Double-check your résumé for these key components before submitting it with an online job application:
Behavior-based interviewing has been around for over 25 years and has begun to shed light on research showing that past performance is a strong predictor of future performance. Both our phone interview and face-to-face interview processes (which may be virtual at times) are behavior based. In this type of interview, questions are structured to extract specific examples and experiences from you—as the interviewee—to help determine how you may react or behave in similar situations you might face within your new civilian role.
Here's the tricky part. As a military service member, no civilian interviewer can quite understand or relate to the stresses and experiences you've endured while in uniform. However, we have all the confidence in the world you may have what it takes to exceed expectations on the job here at Nestlé.
*Remember, our knowledge of processes and technologies used in the military may be very limited. We don’t expect to fully understand the details, but we will need to be able to gauge if the behavior/actions you exhibited were appropriate for the situation.
We expect you’ll have some questions for us, too. But, don’t ask questions just to ask questions. Bring to us your curiosity so we can help confirm if we’re the right fit for you.
Through our Total Rewards Program, you'll enroll annually in medical benefits options that suit your family and lifestyle best. These options include:
Free, confidential access to licensed professional counselors who are trained to help with a variety of personal or family challenges are available to you depending on your specific needs.
Each year, we offer unique incentive programs to help you reach your weight, fitness, and lifestyle goals. These programs take shape through the needs and requests of our associates.
Family always comes first – a commitment we've made across the entire organization by offering one of the most progressive parent support policies in the industry. All designated primary caregivers are offered up to 14 weeks of paid leave, and can elect up to an additional 12 weeks for a potential of 26 weeks total at home as you start or grow your family. If you are not the primary caregiver, you'll receive one week of paid leave following the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child.
Adopting a child is a special gift, and we hope to assist with offsetting a few of the costs incurred with growing your family. There are some variances across this program depending on your role within the organization.
If you have an infant under 12 months old, you'll receive 32 store coupons for any type of Nestlé family.
As a full-time employee of Nestlé, you become eligible for our short-term incentive program based on the company's overall annual performance.
When you add to your retirement savings plan, we feed into it, too. You'll save on a before-tax basis through automated payroll deductions – and it's easy to monitor and keep track of online.
There are many ways to receive awards and rewards, as well as earn recognition for top-notch work. These may vary by location, department, or team. Don't worry, the work you do will not go unnoticed.

Upon reviewing your job application, you may be contacted by a Recruiter on our Talent Sourcing Team for a behavior-based phone interview. If you do not make it to the phone interview stage, you will also be contacted by us via email so you're not left in the dark wondering where you are in the process. This interview is more than just diving into your résumé. Research effective behavior-based interviewing skills to help prepare for this step in the process. A few recommendations to consider:
A successful phone interview may lead you to the face-to-face interviewing stage either at our Nestlé IT offices in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, at any of our local Nestlé businesses around the U.S., or online through our virtual interviewing platform. You'll interview with three different interviewers (or small-group interviewing teams) over the course of three hours to answer various behavior-based interviewing questions about your background, experience, and expertise. Click here for tips on successful behavior-based interviewing. You'll hear from a member of our Talent Sourcing Team whether or not you'll be extended an offer for the job. We promise, we'll never leave you hanging.
We'll extend you a “verbal offer” if you had success in our face-to-face interviewing process and are the right candidate for the job. We move as quickly as we can – you can expect to be contacted by a representative from Nestlé.
At this point, you've accepted our verbal offer and are beginning the paperwork to officially join our Nestlé Family. We (and you) have some important administrative tasks to complete before your first day on the job, so we'll get the ball rolling right away through email communication from our Talent Sourcing Team. Please be on the lookout in your email inbox and by phone regarding important next steps.
This is a great time for asking questions and finalizing any details prior to joining us, whether you're relocating to our head offices in St. Louis, another one of our U.S. Nestlé businesses locations, or beginning your role with us virtually.

You'll have a contact from Nestlé available should you need anything leading up to your start date. Beyond that, we're thrilled to have you join our very #PassionIT team. Welcome aboard!
