When you leave the military, the biggest question is "what's next?" It's a scary job market right now, but the skills you've received in the military make you highly marketable. The Legion sponsors dozens of veterans hiring fairs each year, and our employment experts also provide tips to writing resumes, networking and making a strong impression in the interview process.
The National Resource Directory, a DoD and VA initiative, has redesigned and enhanced its Web site: www.NationalResourceDirectory.gov.
Created for servicemembers, veterans, wounded warriors, and their families and caregivers, NRD is a tool for service providers to reach out to the military and veterans communities. It provides access to thousands of services and resources at the national, state and local levels to support recovery, rehabilitation and community reintegration.
A few features of the new Web site include a faster, more robust search engine, a Bookmark & Share capability to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter etc; and an "In the News" feature that provides links to news and updates about wounded warrior and veterans issues. Also included is an expanded homeless assistance section where users can find information on programs and benefits designed to help homeless veterans live as independently as possible.
Additionally, the National Resource Directory would like to be sure to include the local resources in your area. If you are aware of community programs and services that should be available to veterans, please submit them for review to the Suggest A Resource feature on the NRD.
