“My years in the Marines taught me to adapt and deal with unexpected changes while keeping mission accomplishment the priority.”

-Oscar Hernandez, CareerBuilder employee and U.S. Marine corps veteran

Tools for veterans to find jobs

With our new job search support for military occupational specialty (MOS) codes, veterans can enter their code, just like entering a civilian job title or skill. We'll then serve up the best job matches (like we have here for 1141, a Marine Corps Electrician), without changing anything about the civilian search experience.
