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.

Washington, D.C. – March, 8, 2017: Earlier today, former U.S. House of Representatives Labor, Health and Human Services and Education (Labor-HHS) Appropriations Subcommittee Chair Jack Kingston, along with Susan Fallon, Vice President of Global Strategy and Business Development for Monster Government Solutions, testified before the Labor-HHS Subcommittee during its annual public witness hearing. Kingston and Fallon reiterated the importance of Job Corps’ career technical education services and the continued need to invest in job skills training in order to close the “skills gap.”

“Job Corps is a critical lynchpin in closing the skills gap nationwide,” Kingston said. “I strongly believe that the way toward sustainable job growth in these communities is to invest in the mechanisms like the Job Corps program to educate and develop necessary skills in an effort to create and maintain these jobs in a way that adapts to a changing economy.”

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, there are 5.6 million jobs that remain unfilled because employers cannot find workers with the right set of skills. According to some estimates, the skills gap costs our economy $160 billion annually. Job Corps is a comprehensive education and vocational training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that each year helps 50,000 underserved youth ages 16 through 24.
