3 Programs Help Disabled Vets Find Post-military Careers

Posted:

Veterans with military training and service under their belt have an advantage in the job market, even disabled military veterans.

Even while you may leave the military with a disability, you will find that you are equipped with the kinds of employee skills - including resourcefulness and time management, excellent organizational skills, perseverance and determination to get the job done - as well as specific career experience that employers are looking for.

Military service naturally prepares you for many of the challenges you'll face in professional fields.

In addition, the military provides disabled veterans with resources to find and maintain a fulfilling, post-military career. These three programs offer veteran support services for your professional benefit.

NATIONAL PROGRAM PROVIDES LOCAL HELP TO VETERANS

Veterans Employment Training Service (V.E.T.S) is a national program of the United States Department of Labor with a local focus.

V.E.T.S provides veterans with Disabled Veteran Outreach Personnel (DVOPs), trained individuals that connect veterans with potential employers, eliminating the large gap between available jobs and searching veterans.

HIREVETERANS.COM and VETERANSTODAY.COM

Veterans Today, a veteran-written military journal, operates a separate website called HireVeterans.com.

HireVeterans.com is an up-to-date resource for veterans returning to the job market, featuring hundreds of veteran-specific job listings all over the country. Some companies listed include HSBC, Dunbar Security, American Medical Response, and the San Diego Police Department, among many others.

JOB OPPORTNITIES FOR DISABLED VETERANS

Job Opportunities for Disabled American Veterans, launched in 2009, is a website designed to combine resumes of disabled veterans with job listings nationwide. The website is organized by industry, easing the browsing for both veterans and employers.

Job Opportunities for Disabled American Veterans lists approximately 3,000 positions all over the country at any given time.

To register your resume for Job Opportunities for Disabled American Veterans, veterans should complete the online application along with a resume. Accepted resumes may stay on the website for three months, with options to edit or repost after the 3-month period.
