CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In the third installment of its career information series, DegreeTree.com, an online resource for connecting students with accredited degree programs and schools, has launched the Military Education Resource. Through this resource, DegreeTree.com provides comprehensive guidance for veterans and active military members who are interested in advancing their education, making the transition from military to civilian careers or seeking information on education benefits.
"With Memorial Day right around the corner, we realized the importance of providing information on higher education options and programs available to veterans and active members of the armed forces," said Teri Didjurgis, General Manager of DegreeTree. "There are many higher education assistance programs and opportunities available, but it can be difficult to find all the information in one place. Our latest installment in the information series acts as a cumulative resource for those who have served or are currently serving as a military service member."
From the Yellow Ribbon Program to the Military Spouse Business Alliance through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes program, there are many resources that offer assistance of military personnel. In one article, DegreeTree interviewed retired U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sergeant, Joe Beal, to show how G.E. and other companies like it are helping military personnel make the transition to civilian jobs. This includes education benefits, resume writing advice and interview tips. The hope is that by spreading the word about these resources, more people will use them.The Military Education Benefits is an infographic, by the team at DegreeTree, which shows the steps to transition from military to civilian jobs through higher education by attaining an accredited online degree using military education benefits.
