Military Crosswalks

Military crosswalks are used to match job classifications from the various branches of military to civilian jobs.  Veterans hiring and job programs attempt to identify the best fit for exiting service members, and to help employers understand the skills veterans bring with them.  The crosswalks can be complicated because the different branches of military have different coding structures, the most common classifications of military jobs have subclassifications, and there are frequent updates.
