PITTSBURGH (March 22, 2017)—G.I. Jobs®, the premier resource for helping transitioning service members find success in civilian careers, released its fifth annual Top 25 Hot Jobs For Veterans™ list.

“It’s exciting to see the dichotomy of occupation types open to today’s service members,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer at Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs® and Navy Reserve veteran. “Notably, positions on the 2017 Top 25 Hot Jobs list focus less on military occupational skills and more on intangible skills and attributes gained through military training: teamwork, leadership, effective communication skills, trainability and technical experience. What company wouldn’t want those?”
