Labor site helps job-seeking vets

The Labor Department has a new World Wide Web site designed to help technical and nontechnical service members and veterans find a job in the civilian world.

The Use Your Military and Experience Training (UMET) Web site wants to make it easier for current and former military personnel to obtain the licenses and certifications required for jobs in the civilian work force.

The site has tips for employees searching for information on credentials they need to launch a civilian career. For example, if you're a radio operator in the Army and you want to know what kind of credentials you need to get a similar civilian job, this site provides a good first step in answering this question.

The site also has information for employers interested in hiring former military employees. For example, it offers details on military training and experience and veterans' qualifications, including overviews of major occupational specialties and most popular career fields sought by transitioning military personnel.
