Job boards are an invaluable resource for any job search. It can be especially helpful for veterans to frequent military- or veteran-oriented job boards, in addition to traditional job boards like Monster.com and Craigslist. Military job boards spotlight general positions as well as positions for which employers are especially interested in hiring military veterans or positions for which military veterans are likely qualified. See below for a list of reputable military job boards, and note that this list is not exhaustive.
