Military-Civilian Job Comparability Manual. A Guide for Employers, Vocational Counselors and Others Concerned with Employment of Veterans.
Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (DOD), Washington, DC.
This manual was developed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense as a guide for vocational counselors, employers, and others concerned with the employment of veterans. Military jobs in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force are listed and tabbed separately for each service. Highly related and substantially related civilian jobs are presented together with the military job descriptions in a 3-column format. Included with each job listing are: (1) the number of weeks required for entry level job training, and (2) occupational codes, with the specialty ratings. A separate section lists civilian job categories alphabetically, giving related military specialities for each category. Tabbed indexes are included separately for each service. Instructions for use of the manual are detailed, noting that combat related jobs are not separately listed. Jobs for each military service except the Navy are grouped in these eight categories: (1) electronic equipment repairmen, (2) communications and intelligence specialists, (3) medical and dental specialists, (4) other technical and allied specialists, (5) administrative specialists and clerks, (6) electrical and mechanical equipment repairmen, (7) craftsmen, and (8) service and supply handlers.
