Coming right out of the military you can find employment right away. It may not be the dream you hoped for and it may not be in the company you had hoped for but it is something that you can do until you can bridge into the job you want.
Many Vets who are unemployed are in their situation due to their inflexibility to take a temporary job while they are finishing qualifications or education on their way to getting the civilian occupation they are seeking.
There are many jobs that prefer to have Vets in their employ in a full or part time basis.
Listed below are few sites that can help a Vet bridge into great civilian careers.


USAJOBS is the portal for all government jobs. If you are looking to get a Federal Job then this is the website for you.



Troops to Teachers is a great site if you have a college degree and want to bridge from the military into teaching. Almost every state has an office.  They can let you know the requirements the classes you need to take to round out your degree and become a teacher.  Nation wide there is a high demand for math, science and special education.
