What's New @ The Veterans Career Compass (VCC)
The VCC has a fresh new look and we hope you like it! ...

If you are looking for a job, the VCC will now automatically match your professional experience to jobs from participating employers. If you have added your professional experience, military and/or civilian, to your e-portfolio, aka, My Story, then when you login to your account, you will see the number of matching jobs. Clicking on that number will take you to the jobs page where you can get to those matching jobs.

Did you know that employers are more likely to take a closer look at candidates who have volunteer experience? You can now add Volunteer Experience to your e-portfolio and then to any resume you create in VCC.

VCC now has a News section that will be used to offer employment and jobs related news in the Hampton Roads area. Please check back often to stay informed.
