MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Military.com released a new, personality assessment-based version of their popular Military Skills Translator (MST) today in order to help veterans better understand what they are qualified to do and what career fields may best match their interests and skill sets. 

 The Military Skills Translator is designed to allow job seekers and recruiters to directly translate military experience and skills into civilian terminology. But not all veterans want to work in the same job they had in the military, or they may want to see how those skills can be leveraged in a new career field.

Military Skills Translator + Personality Assessment was developed using existing military skills information and blending that with technology developed by Traitify to go beyond skills translation and incorporate personality testing.

Traitify invented an entirely new assessment format which is image-based, mobile-friendly and takes ninety seconds to complete. The Traitify Career Discovery tool gives job seekers tailored recommendations on which career fields are best suited to their personalities.

CyberCapital.us highlights the Greater Washington area’s position as a global epicenter for cybersecurity that combines public and private sector assets. The region, encompassing Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland, has a cyber workforce of 84,000 strong, boasts 14% of the nation’s total cyber job postings, and is a hotbed for cyber activity in firms ranging from the Fortune 1000 to a growing number of venture-backed startups.  The region’s proximity, expertise and unparalleled experience in serving the federal government are critical, both in policymaking and actually protecting America interests.

The 2017 winners of the StateScoop 50 Awards, which highlight the best and brightest in the state IT community, were announced Sunday at a reception in Crystal City, Virginia, to help kick off the National Association of State Chief Information Officers' midyear conference.

For the fourth year, the StateScoop 50 awards honored state government information technology executives, leaders, industry influencers, up-and-comers and innovative projects. And for the first time, the awards honored cybersecurity leaders across state government.

Members of the state and local IT community nominated thousands of government leaders in March, 2017. StateScoop narrowed the list to the top 150 with the most nominations and StateScoop readers cast more than 100,000 votes nationally in April to select the final 50 2017 winners.
