the Cloud Talent Solution feature work?
With Cloud Talent Solution, transitioning service members can now enter their military occupational specialty code (MOS, AFSC, or NEC)
directly into our find a job search bar
powered by Google Cloud’s APIs and can see the relevant civilian jobs currently
available with our employer partners.
Military ranks codes are currently supported in
the system. For example, both “11A” for Infantry Officer and “11B” Infantryman
are supported. At this time, searches by rank levels within enlisted or officer
are not supported.

United States Marines Military Occupational Specialties (MOS)

Enlisted Classification (NEC)
You can search the publicly available lists of
military occupation codes for MOS

Hired’s veteran team members try out the new feature
With two veterans with disabilities on our team,
we couldn’t be more excited to share their positive experiences with searching
for jobs leveraging their military occupation codes on our website.
Lawrence is an Account Manager for Getting Hired
and is an eight year Army veteran.
Lawrence was ecstatic to learn about Getting Hired’s enhancement as supporting
veterans with disabilities is one of his passions. During his time in the Army,
Lawrence gained various Intel analyst skills. His military occupation code is 35P, which translates to several analysts’ job opportunities
for him with our employers.
“I’m impressed to see Google Cloud leading the
way with technology that supports veterans. When I first got out of the
military and realized I wasn’t going to work for the government anymore, it was
clear to me that my skills as a linguist would be challenging to translate into
the civilian workforce. This feature is a huge win for veterans with
disabilities as it helps them navigate through their transition. Understanding what options veterans have in
the civilian world that complement their military experience is probably the
biggest employment challenge veterans face as they leave the military; this
technology helps to bridge that gap and make it easier,” says Lawrence Wilde,
Patrick is a Business Development Manager for
Getting Hired and is a U.S. Army veteran who
is passionate about his six years in the service. Patrick was excited to hear
about the enhancement as he knows this will help ease some anxiety for veterans
who feel like there aren’t many tools for them to search for jobs. His military
occupation code is 42A, which translates into the civilian world with job
opportunities as a human resources specialist or an administrative assistant.
“This is a great enhancement as it is easy for
veterans to use, translate their skills and get quick results. I’m most excited
to see how the feature will help veterans shape their military experience in
their resumes as the feature helps them search for relevant job descriptions
they need to align to, to be found by recruiters,” says Patrick Hodge, Business
