Looking for a way to connect with other military members so you can better explore career opportunities both in and out of the military?
RallyPoint is an online professional network offering exclusivity to U.S. military members. It provides military personnel and veterans with tools for taking greater control of their careers. The online network makes it easier to connect with the right people at the right time to pursue the right career opportunities.
RallyPoint was founded in 2012 by two Army veterans. Yinon Weiss and Aaron Kletzing first met in Iraq, then later reconnected at Harvard Business School. From the start, their mission was to help service members and veterans lead more successful and fulfilling lives. The goal was to solve one of the major challenges of being in the military. In an armed forces that rotates people through positions every couple of years, it can be difficult—logistically and culturally—for individual members to play an active role in charting their own careers. Enter RallyPoint.
While RallyPoint is similar to LinkedIn, it’s accessible exclusively to US military professionals in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. This enables active, transitioning and veteran military to talk comfortably about their careers, life transitions, even politics. By creating a free military profile, a member can see how his/her military contacts can help him/her get a foot in the door to land the right military or non-military job.
Additional free resources for transitioning job-seekers are available at the USBA Military Jobs Center. USBA is a nationally recognized non-profit association dedicated to serving active, retired and transitioning military for over 55 years. USBA offers veterans life insurance choices with affordable rates you won’t find through VA life insurance.
