Website connects veterans with employers

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden recently announced the launch of the Veterans Employment Center, an online tool that allows veterans, transitioning service members, and their spouses to search for jobs, create resum├ęs, and connect with employers.

Job seekers can use the Military Skills Translator to match military career tracks with civilian occupations and critical skills, create and upload a resume online, and find public and private job openings in a single search. Employers are provided with a direct feed of resumes from Veteran applicants, can view reverse skills translation (military to civilian skills) for applicants, and can make public their own Veterans hiring goals.

The Veterans Employment Center, along with many other job-seeker tools, is available on the library's Career & Employment Resources page.
