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.
