U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki today unveiled a new portal on their departments’ websites designed to help military veterans find jobs in the transportation industry.
The portal on the U.S. DOT and the VA websites will link to the Veterans Transportation Career Center, where veterans can enter their military work experience and see how it translates to jobs in the civilian world.
The site will guide veterans to jobs in five categories: aviation pilot, aviation maintenance technician, air traffic controller, commercial motor vehicle driver and emergency medical services.
