Veterans Seek Education Aid in Private-Sector Transition
Leaving military service is a fresh start to find a job that can put extensive experience and specialized skills to work in the civilian sector.
Finding the right fit for such talents begins with locating sources that can assist with pairing you with a job where career goals can soar.
MyComputerCareer, which is nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training, has recognized the nationwide shortage of IT workers, according to Dan Pryor, executive director of education at MyComputerCareer.edu.
It is able to aid veterans by relating their skill set to employers with the expertise of career services professionals who are Certified Master Military Resume Writers.
The area of cybersecurity is a hot topic to address in the workforce, he said.
“Cybersecurity is perhaps the biggest area of opportunity for our graduates,” Pryor said. “Veterans often come to our school with a security clearance. When you combine it with the networking, security training and certifications they earn like the CCNA and Certified Ethical Hacker, graduates are well prepared to fill the cyber security void. Whether our transitioning military are interested in computer support, networking, systems administration, or any number of networking or cyber security positions, the work is there for those with the right skills and certifications.”
