Q. Suggestion or Request as reported by user:
In the military, we use quite a few acronyms. When I attempt to make an entry in my work history with more than one consecutive capital letter (i.e., US Army) and save it, my resume shows Us Army. The capitalization is not correct and automatically is converted to normal sentence case. This looks very strange to me and undoubtedly looks strange to others. How do I correct this?
A. Response or Answer as provided by Avjobs:
You point is well understood. As a former military member myself I completely understand.
Over the years many users of the applicant system carelessly entered their personal information IN ALL CAPS, all lowercase and a mixture of both.
Many employers and recruiting managers complained that these applicants appeared to be careless, and/or did not pay attention to detail. (In the world of aviation, safety and efficiency are tied very closely to these factors.)
This was a huge challenge for Avjobs as we cannot personally review each and every piece of data entry provided by our users.
A lot of discussion was had over this issue, and an executive decision was made (well above me) to automatically correct these errors for applicants to give them a bit of help in the process.
Unfortunately, we can't have it both ways, so the data is either corrected, or not. And as of now… it is.
As a former military member myself...
May I suggest "United States Army" as an alternative and solution to the problem?
Technically this is correct and should appear more professional and respectful of your commitment to our country. Employers and recruiting managers will also notice the difference and professionalism that separates you from other applicants.
Alternatively, you may also place a space between the U and the S as in U S Army, or a period should also work as in U.S. Army.
For future reference - the system automatically capitalizes the first letter appearing after a space or period. (Sentence Case)

Aerospace Manufacturing and Assembly Career Overview
The aerospace industry (of which aircraft manufacturing is one portion) is primarily engaged in the design, development and manufacture of aircraft, missiles, spacecraft, their propulsion, navigation and guidance systems, and other aeronautical and astronautical systems and their components.
The major divisions within the aircraft manufacturing industry are airframe, components, accessory and equipment, and engine.
Ground support equipment (GSE) is the support equipment found at an airport, usually on the ramp, the servicing area by the terminal. This equipment is used to service the aircraft between flights. As its name implies, GSE is there to support the operations of aircraft on the ground. The functions that this equipment plays generally involve ground power operations, aircraft mobility, and loading operations (for both cargo and passengers). The GSE mechanic services and repairs ground service equipment including portable stairs, fuel and food trucks, towing tractors, aircraft tugs, manlifts, APU's, company automobiles and employee buses.
MVCC A&P Certificate Program Description
The Mohawk Valley Community College (MVCC) Airframe & Powerplant Certificate program is located at Griffiss International Airport in Rome NY. The MVCC A&P Program is FAA FAR147 approved (Cert #VXYT570K). This program is unique because it spans three consecutive semesters over the course of twelve months. It provides the required 1,900 hours of FAA curriculum, and all students are issued a seven drawer roll-around Snap-On, or MAC cabinet box tool set as part of the program tuition. With the A&P certificate program being only one year in length, it is ideally suited for those who need to obtain their FAA certification in as short of time as possible in order to get back to work.
The MVCC Aviation Training Center offers training on a functional Boeing 727-100 and a wide variety of general aviation aircraft. The presence of two heavy jet MRO’s on the same airport also offers exposure to different aircraft types for students. The program has been involved in several military aircraft restoration display projects including a B-52 and F-4 Phantom.
In addition to the FAA A&P certificate, students may also chose to continue with MVCC for two more conventional college semesters to achieve an AAS degree in Mechanical Technology: Aircraft Maintenance.
MVCC has two main campuses and several off campus locations, with approximately 8,000 total students. It is also part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system, which allows for all standard forms of financial aid to be applied to the cost of the tuition and fees, and insures all programs offered by MVCC are maintained to the highest academic standards. Because MVCC is a non-profit community college, the tuition rates are much lower than other similar programs offered by private educational institutions. Room and board in the upstate New York area is very affordable which also contributes to keeping the overall cost of obtaining an A&P certificate through MVCC very affordable.
