  • Are you interested in earning a degree, going to technical school, or enhancing your skills? Check out the GI Bill and other education and training
  • Are you looking for a private-sector or federal job? Search nearly 3 million jobs at the Jobs Bank, and narrow your search by rank, salary, and other factors.
  • Are you considering career opportunities in VA health care? Search VA Careers for a variety of career options filtered by category and state.
  • Interested in applying to a federal job? Check out the Veteran Employment Services Office or USA Jobs for employment and training resources on launching a civilian career.


Some benefits may also be used by active service members, reservists, and National Guard members as well as eligible spouses, children, and survivors of Veterans and service members.
