ServiceToOpportunity.org is a powerful matching tool that connects veterans directly to managers ready to hire for in-demand jobs at regional energy and manufacturing companies. The site has recently been enhanced with a fresh, more user-friendly interface, videos of the types of open jobs, and a direct and personal connection to employers.

If you’ve already created a job seeker profile on the site, click here to reset your password (as part of the site revamp) to begin connecting with employers ready to hire. Not sure if you made a profile? Enter your email address in the log in page; if you’ve already created a profile, you will be prompted to update your password. If you haven’t, or if your new to the site, it takes about five minutes to create a basic profile; you can always come back later to tell employers more about your skills and experience.

VETERANS: Even if you’re not job-hunting right now, it’s always a good career move to have your resume out in places where recruiters are looking for talented, hardworking veterans. Sign up here, or pass the word to veterans or returning servicemen or women in your personal and professional networks, on Service To Opportunity®’s social media platforms: Facebook.com/ServiceToOpportunity and Twitter.com/Srv2Opportunity.
