Resources for Geospatial Personnel Transitioning out of the Military

This presentation examines some materials and assets available to veterans entering into the academic world. We begin with an outline and then transition to review service members' opportunity colleges (SOCs), the joint services transcript (JST), a military crosswalk of geospatial competencies, publicly-available military skills translators as well as a variety of sites that may prove useful to veterans who are entering academia. The session will conclude with a demonstration of a military crosswalk of geospatial occupations and the recommended credit for prior learning.
