As a health system dedicated to serving those who’ve served, VA sincerely appreciates other organizations that step up and help Veterans gain meaningful employment after the military. This includes LinkedIn, a company committed to providing former service members with support for career advancement. That’s why we’re highlighting a few of the valuable resources the social networking site offers to job-seeking Veterans.

LinkedIn for Veterans Tutorial

This one-hour tutorial provides tips on how to:

– Leverage LinkedIn to pinpoint a career that best suits one’s interests

Skills Translation Seminar

Through this seminar, Veterans can learn how to articulate their military skills in ways that resonate with potential employers. This is similar to VA’s Military to Civilian Occupation Translator – another helpful resource to use during the application process.

    I said in several media outlets, I’ll say it again. LET THE VA AND USPS DIVIE UP SOME FUNDS AND WORK WITH VETS IN REHAB OR JUST OUT REACH TO VETS TO GET BACK INTO THE MAILROOM. THESE KIDS WE GOT NOW WASTE MORE GAS RUNNIN BACK AND FORTH THE SAME STREET DELIVERIN INSTEAD OF LINING UP THE ROUTE IN THE MAILROOM SO START OF GETTING SOME VETS IN TO PRESORT FOR THE PREMADONNAS. VETERANS CAN WORK THEIR LIMITS WHILE THE CONTINUE TOWARD A VET PENSION.

    NONE of this is available in Arizona; why is that so? I even offered my services and every dept says “VA hospitals do not
    offer these services–this is a scam–esp at the dept of voc rehab.

    I love this short but insightful article to help out veterans. I think there needs to be more help not only from other social media companies such as LinkedIn but also from other fortune 500 companies and not for profit and government organizations. Our veterans have suffered a lot and this will help them out a lot.
