Let Our Job Board Do the Work for You

How do you find a career you care about? It starts by connecting with companies looking to hire. RecruitMilitary is the place where employers go to find America’s top talent, and we encourage you to announce your presence in the workforce.

We've got:

• 1.376 million job seeker accounts

• 4.634 million job seeker profile views

• 246,000 active job listings - with more than 1,000 arriving on our site daily

Our job board lets you save searches, save jobs, upload resumes, and much more. There’s a Resources section for job seekers which provides information about how to get started. Making use of these tools can enhance your career search.

But if employers can't find you, they can't talk with you. That's why it's important to begin sharing your story and qualifications by setting up a profile. Once you've done that, it's time to search for opportunities that interest you. To further refine your search, RecruitMilitary allows Boolean search terms that let a searcher harness additional capabilities of the our search engine.

What Is a Boolean Search String and How Can It Help Me?

A Boolean search (named for its creator, George Boole) allows you to combine keywords with operators (or modifiers) such as AND, NOT and OR to gain more precise results. It's like firing with a rifle instead of a shotgun.

For example, if a common word is essential to getting the results you want, you can include it by putting “AND” in front of it (example: Accounting AND QuickBooks). Interested in management/consulting? Use the "OR" to get results that contain either word. This is useful for searching for different words with similar definitions.

You can exclude a word from your search by putting “NOT” immediately in front of the term you want to exclude from the search results (example: Sales NOT Retail). Locate complete phrases by enclosing them in quotation marks. Words marked in this way will appear together in all results exactly as entered (example: "User Experience"). Keep in mind that If none of the above search operators are used, a search for marketing data research is a search for marketing and data and research.

Once you've figured out your search parameters, you're ready to activate your search. The horizontal column above your search results gives you three options: a notification feature sends jobs to your email, the save feature lets you save your search, and you can sort your results by date a job is posted and by relevance. The RecruitMilitary job board is the perfect place to display your skills.

Remember, it's important to complete your profile 100% so employers know who you are and how you fit into their organization. Take the simple steps right now to join our ranks and find your next path.
