DOT Launches Web Portal for Veterans Seeking Transportation Jobs
June 21, 2012
The Department of Transportation (DOT), in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, launched a web portal to help veterans find transportation jobs in the private sector. At the Veterans Transportation Career Center, former members of the armed forces can enter their specific military work experience to see how it translates to jobs in the civilian working world. Job seekers can learn what training and certification are needed for civilian jobs, determine what career fits best with their background, and search for available jobs in their field.
The new site will guide veterans to jobs in five categories: aviation pilot, aviation maintenance technician, air traffic controller, commercial motor vehicle driver, and emergency medical services.
