What We Do
Most of you service members transitioning out of the military have been in uniform since you were 18. Now, you’re 22 or 42, brimming with talent, but lacking the necessary resources and knowledge to take the next step in the civilian world. And that’s where we come in.
Since 2001, G.I. Jobs® has been the premier brand in military recruitment, offering articles, tips and online tools to help military transitioners explore different career and post-secondary education options. We give you specific, how-to advice on everything from choosing a college to writing a resume and interviewing.
Who We Do It For
G.I. Jobs® serves the needs of the nation’s 400,000 service members who leave the military every year and enter the civilian workforce. These new veterans look to us for advice and tools to help them find the right jobs, education, and vocational training during and after leaving the military.
Why We Do It
The founders of Victory Media left the Navy in the late 1990s only to discover a lack of good resources to help them transition into civilian careers. The government’s Transition Assistance (“TAP”) Program was around then, but limited in scope. As co-founder Chris Hale likes to say, “It took nearly 11 months of plebe year for the Navy to transform me from a civilian into a midshipman. TAP class is going to turn me back into a civilian in 2 ½ days? Right.”
The co-founders knew there was an opportunity to create cutting edge, civilian-produced resources for the 400,000 people who leave military service each year—and to create a more efficient way for schools and employers to reach this group of talented candidates.
