Designed specifically to help veterans transition to civilian life, the SDS Veterans and Military Occupations Finder works in conjunction with the SDS Form R, 5th Edition Assessment Booklet to help match an individual's Summary Code to both military and civilian positions.
Two indexes link military occupations to civilian occupations
- The Military Occupations Index lists current Military Occupational Specialities (MOS) from each of the five branches of military: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, and Navy. Each MOS includes a corresponding two-letter Holland Occupational Code (HOC).
- The Military to Civilian Occupations Crosswalk Index lists MOSs from each of the five branches along with corresponding civilian occupations and two-letter HOCs.
Using these two indexes, users can locate HOCs for military occupations and their corresponding civilian occupations. This allows users to better understand how they might apply the skills and abilities that they developed in the military to civilian occupations with similar requirements.
