Military.com Adds Several New Features to Transition Center
Sep 12 13
Military.com announced they have added several new features to their Transition Center in order to better serve the needs of transitioning servicemembers. The Transition Center now features a personalized Transition Action Plan for those leaving the military, those retiring from a career in the military and those serving in the National Guard and Reserve for whom transition is a different experience. The Transition Action Plan tool guides the servicemember using a timeline that recommends specific actions to take at corresponding key points in the transition process; whether they are leaving the service immediately or up to 18 months ahead of time. The Action Plan provides automatic notifications about when and how to craft a resume, advice on professional networking and detailed information to prepare for the financial aspects of transition from government service to the civilian sector. The Transition Center also features useful articles, valuable reference material, easy to use check lists and a periodic e-newsletter. The job search process for veterans continues to be unfamiliar and lacks structure for job seekers. Conversely, employers have struggled to locate veteran talent and align military experience to role requirements. Monster.com and Military.com's Military Skills Translator converts military specialties into civilian occupations and identifies similar occupations for the user to consider. Additionally, the Veteran Career Network on Military.com features career paths other veterans with similar backgrounds have taken and provides networking between veterans and transitioning personnel for mentorship on education opportunities, transition challenges and career advice based on job specialty. The site also features many jobs for veterans.
