Carlsbad, CA Feb. 21, 2013 -- Adicio Inc., the industry's leading job board software firm in Southern California, announced today its job board portal's most recent Jobs Rated report.

New efforts to help America’s population of active duty servicemen and women, reservists and veterans are effective and have opened up rewarding career paths in a range of fields, including information technology, manufacturing and transportation, according to the new CareerCast.com report on jobs for military veterans. Telecommunications Equipment Installer, Industrial Production Manager, Ship Engineer, and Construction Program Manager are among the positions CareerCast.com has identified as best suited for military veterans.

The unemployment rate for veterans is over 10% among post-9/11 enlistees, which is higher than the national rate of 7.9%%, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). But both U.S. government programs and private industry are heeding the call to assist those job seekers who made the ultimate commitment to country. First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden head the Joining Forces jobs initiative, which has brought together 2,000 domestic companies with the pledge of hiring 100,000 veterans, as well as the spouses of active duty military members, by the end of this year. Many states are creating programs for veterans as well.

“Helping veterans reintegrate into the civilian workforce is a critical effort for the nation's economy and military,” says Tony Lee, publisher, CareerCast.com. “The leadership and organizational skills developed in the military are helping those veterans qualify for positions that require team building and leadership.” 

When reviewing potential civilian careers for former members of the military, 10 positions rise above the rest for their ability to tap into the skills and traits developed by most veterans, as well as their availability in the job market. Using data from the CareerCast Jobs Rated report, here are the 10 jobs best suited for military veterans:
