Each month, Americans hear the news of the current Unemployment Rates. For those of us who served, those numbers take on added meaning. Recent historical unemployment numbers show Veterans spending much more time in the Unemployment line than their Non-Veteran peers.
The good news is that the Unemployment Rate for Veterans appears to be dropping. How long this will last is anybody’s guess, but here’s a list of things you can do that might help you remain in the ranks of the EMPLOYED.
Ways to Combat Veteran Unemployment
What other things do you think Veterans need to do in order for Veteran Unemployment to reach zero? Whose responsibility is it? What other considerations must be considered besides the Veteran?
Nice, concise list. Good points and thought provoking topics, esp. 3, 8, 12 and 13 for sure, 19, and 21 is a good one to think about. Often the default is just automatically to draw upon military experience, but there are definitely instances where it just doesn't translate to the job you want at all or it really doesn't do much for you if you are going in to a completely unrelated field.
"Default" is a great way to describe it Matthieu! You bring up a great point! Well said!
The best thing they could do would be to list which jobs on USA Jobs are actually just searching for a TS clearance, and save us time.
And, it would be nice if the application process were streamlined, and eliminate the KSA's which are designed to keep only people who have already done that work, and are already in the Fed employment.
Byron17: You might wish to check out http://www.clearancejobs.com/. This site and others have things drilled down to TS. Other site may include http://www.military.com/veteran-jobs and others.
Also, when you search, you can enter the Keywords "TS Clearance" and this will limit the amount of choices to just what you're looking for.
Hope this helps!
