Translating military service into civilian jobs
New system helps veterans translate their military service into the civilian workforce
Army privates and Marine reservists often have a tough time translating their skills to civilian jobs when they leave the military. To help unemployed veterans solve this disconnect, the state has rolled out a new software program at its 34 career centers that matches military experience with open jobs. The system, called TORQ, analyzes the knowledge, skills, and abilities of a user’s previous positions and finds the best crossover occupations within his or her salary range.
