Search & Employ® Magazine

September / October 2009

Welcome to job seekers who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, veterans who already have civilian work experience, members of the National Guard and reserves, and military spouses. Our continuing mission: to help men and women who have military backgrounds connect with employers, franchisors, and educational institutions.

Our cover story focuses on opportunities in healthcare, the leading sector of the economy in these tough economic times. The number of healthcare jobs grew from 13.3 million in June 2008 to 13.6 million in June 2009, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

There are plenty of opportunities for veterans in healthcare—even veterans who did not work in that field while they were in the military. Such veterans can use educational benefits available under the Montgomery GI Bill and the new Post-9/11 GI Bill to acquire the medical and technical skills they need.

Our feature article describes opportunities in construction, an industry that has taken plenty of hard knocks during the recession. Hiring is down sharply, but to fill the openings they do have, employers are looking for people who can lead and work in teams, people who are disciplined and can get the job done—people like you.

The same is true for employers throughout Corporate America. In these tough times, companies are especially eager to hire employees who will take to the job immediately, work with great interest and enthusiasm—and learn, learn, learn!

To further your job search and to make your data searchable by employers, franchisors, and educational institutions, we encourage you to register as a job seeker at www.recruitmilitary.com. There, you will find thousands of job postings, and you will join a vast database that is searched by recruiters nationwide.

We also encourage you to attend the RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expos in your area. Recruiters representing employers, franchisors, and educational institutions will be on hand to discuss a multitude of options.

And finally: Talk to everyone who has opportunities for veterans. Do not rule out any business or industry until you have discussed the opportunities with a recruiter. And do not confuse occupations with industries. For example, a veteran who is interested in an occupation in information technology should not confine his or her search to firms in the I/T industry—note that the MillerCoors ad on page 21 of this issue lists I/T as an available opportunity!

Thank you for serving in the armed forces of the United States.
