Veterans can now find Idaho jobs and training opportunities directly related to their military skills and service at labor.idaho.gov/jobscape.

JobScape allows job seekers and others to learn more about an occupation’s hourly and annual wages, worker demand, current employment numbers, annual job openings, and it provides a direct link to current, relevant job listings. Searches can be made statewide or by region.

Veterans find JobScape’s new military title and code search feature particularly important because it allows them to connect their military skills with civilian job openings. Veterans can search by their former military title — sergeant, combat medic specialist, infantryman — or military occupation code — 11B, 1N111B, 00J — and get connected to civilian jobs such as human resource managers, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), firefighters, police patrol officers, electricians or civil engineers.

If the user chooses to pursue additional training, JobScape identifies the relevant education and training opportunities available throughout the state. The system features a snapshot of Idaho occupations including a description, entry-level education requirements, training programs offered at Idaho’s eight public postsecondary institutions, the number of degrees and certifications awarded, and links to current job openings based on the user’s area of interest.

JobScape can be accessed without an account or login. The system is tablet- and mobile-friendly and is maintained by the Idaho Department of Labor on its website at labor.idaho.gov/jobscape.
