Skills, Education and he Kansas Department of Labor launched a new online jobs resource for veterans; Skills, Education and Resources for Veteran Employment, KanSERVE as part of an overall effort by Governor Sam Brownback to provide resources to veterans in Kansas.
KanSERVE will assist veterans in finding available jobs and training in Kansas using only their Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) code. With this code, the civilian job search narrows down the results to each person’s specific skill set.
“We are ready to serve our veterans in a small way after they have served each of us in the military. We want to simplify their job search as they transition to civilian life,” Karin Brownlee, Kansas Secretary of Labor, said. “This website connects several information points to provide veterans with possible job training opportunities and job openings.”
This new resource will be included in a website being developed by the Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs to provide a one-stop location for a variety of services for veterans.
Search results are pulled from the Department’s large network of online job postings and training programs throughout Kansas. KanSERVE is currently available at http://klic.dol.ks.gov. Some of the information provided to veterans after entering their MOS code includes:
• List of related civilian occupations
• Civilian job openings that correspond to the MOS code
• Occupation descriptions of job duties
• Jobs data
• Supply and demand data
• Kansas training programs
• Job openings by employer
• Annual/hourly wage information
• Ten year employment projections of the provided occupations
• Industries that employ the largest number of occupations
