The following is a collection of websites that provide assistance to military veterans who are seeking employment. We realize that student veterans will possess a unique set of skills acquired through active duty and we encourage you to make an appointment with Career Services to help you not only identify your transferrable skills and career goals, but also to help you craft a more “civilian-friendly” resume. The first set of links provides you with some job search web sites, while the second set offers more additional information veteran students may find useful. However, we encourage you to start with the MnSCU My Military GPS LifePlan as you begin the transition to school.
