The North Carolina Military Foundation teamed with the North Carolina Military Business Center to create a database and interactive Web site which enables businesses to link their needs to the competencies of troops exiting the military. One of the challenges faced by troops and business leaders alike is identifying the knowledges,
skills, and abilities shared by military and civilian jobs. Using a keyword related to a job opening, employers are able to search for related military occupations and information on how many military personnel in these occupations are returning annually to civilian jobs. The user can view additional information about these occupations, including a list of related civilian job titles. Further exploration is available through a link to the related occupations in O*NET OnLine. This Web site helps employers and transitioning military personnel come together through the common language of the O*NET system.
