Veterans can look for jobs on newly designed website
A website has been designed to help military veterans find jobs in the transportation industry. According to a news release, the site allows former members of the armed forces to enter their specific military work experience and see how it translates to civilian jobs in five categories: aviation pilot, aviation maintenance technician, air traffic controller, commercial motor vehicle driver and emergency medical services. Job seekers can find what training and certification is needed for civilian jobs, determine what career fits best with their backgrounds and search for available jobs in their field.

The committee was established in 2009 to serve Jackson and Routt counties in Colorado as well as Albany and Carbon counties in Wyoming. In 2011, the RAC volunteered to assist Rio Blanco County (White River National Forest) to solicit and select projects so that a separate RAC did not need to be formed.
The Medicine Bow-Routt RAC has slots for 15 members representative of a variety of interests and expertise. There currently are several open positions for voting members and alternate members. Nominees will be recommended by the U.S. Forest Service and approved by the Secretary of Agriculture.
Applicants must live in Colorado or Wyoming. Members will serve a four-year term without compensation except possible travel expenses. For an application, email email@example.com, or call RAC Coordinator Aaron Voos at 307-745-2323.
