In the Matter of Victory Media, Inc., a corporation, also doing business as G.I. Jobs, and also doing business as Military Friendly, File No. 162 3210
The G.I. jobs website and magazine has been, and continues to be, a principal tool and resource in assisting with the transition from military to civilian/corporate life for myself and many other veterans. The service they provide is essential to the veteran community and the benefits are significant, impactful, and far reaching. It is paramount to prepare for navigating that pivotal "next step" in civilian life and G.I. jobs exists to ensure that happens successfully by offering information, education, guidance, and resources to cultivate a strong foundation and platform from which to accomplish that. With varied mediums and a plethora of features, they have become a vital, "one stop shop" for meeting the needs of service members pursuing a smooth, seamless, and effective environment in which to progress and flourish while transitioning. The articles, dedicated blog, stories, skill building, practical advice/application, networking, job search strategies, military friendly employer section etcÂ…have been instrumental for further development and growth as an avenue to surmount obstacles, achieve personal and professional goals and segue into civilian life. While TAP classes were beneficial, they were also incomplete and did not adequately prepare me for the real world. Thankfully, I was able to utilize G.I. jobs to bridge any instruction or training gaps. They are an upstanding and impressive organization that maintains a high level of excellence and I strongly recommend them for any and all transitioning service members.
