MY NEXT MOVE FOR VETERANS
My Next Move for Veterans is designed for U.S. veterans who are current job seekers. The interactive tool helps vets learn about their career options. The site has tasks, skills, salary information, job listings, and more for over 900 different careers.
Veterans can find careers through keyword search; by browsing industries that employ different types of workers; or by discovering civilian careers that are similar to their job in the military. Veterans can also take advantage of the O*NET Interest Profiler, a tool that offers personalized career suggestions based on a person’s interests and level of work experience.

O*NET ONLINE RESOUCE CENTER
The O*NET Program is the nation’s primary source of occupational information. Valid data are essential to understanding the rapidly changing nature of work and how it impacts the workforce and U.S. economy. From this information, applications are developed to facilitate the development and maintenance of a skilled workforce.
Central to the project is the O*NET database, containing hundreds of standardized and occupation-specific descriptors on almost 1,000 occupations covering the entire U.S. economy. The database, which is available to the public at no cost, is continually updated from input by a broad range of workers in each occupation.
O*NET information is used by millions of individuals every year, including those taking advantage of O*NET Online, My Next Move, and other publicly and privately developed applications. The data have proven vital in helping people find the training and jobs they need, and employers the skilled workers necessary to be competitive in the marketplace.

The SUPHEROES Foundation is 501(c)3 registered public charity. Our mission is to support the mental health of our Veterans, Military, First Responders and their families. We partner with amazing organizations that are dedicated towards creating mental health resiliency within a safe environment so that Veterans, Military, First Responders and their families are able to address the many issues that they face.
Our partners and their programs help professionals to look at complicated underlying issues that fuel problematic behaviors in each of the six dimensions identified below. These Issues are connected and can be confusing to address. They provide professional support to individuals who need help organizing and overcoming complex mental health and substance concerns. Within a short amount of time, they help First Responders identify goals, skills, and motivators that allow them to overcome personal challenges and to create a fulfilling life in their home environment. We work with our partners to remove the barriers that prevent our Heroes from receiving the quality treatment they deserve.
Sometimes it’s as simple as eliminating individual and family travel cost to treatment, or it involves filling in the gap financially for their high deductible and out of pocket costs. The end goal is to ensure every Hero that suffers from PTSD, mental health and addiction has the ability to receive top quality education and treatment without the fear of being financially burdened.
