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 U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) says it has a number of immediate job openings for veterans with a disability rating of 30 percent or more who are interested in becoming background investigators, program analysts, management analysts and accounting technicians for the government. Depending upon the job duties, pay ranges from about $32,000 to $70,000 per year.
To fill these job openings, OPM is staging an online Veterans Hiring Event between now and midnight, January 6, 2011. Details about the jobs themselves, candidate qualifications and application procedures are available at www.fedshirevets.gov/job/events.
