Mission United is proud to offer the Self-Directed Search!

The men and women who have served their country need a tool designed specifically for them, an instrument that will help them discover the careers and fields of study they are particularly suited for.

The VeteranSDS is an online resource designed for veterans and active-duty military personnel

The SDS takes about 20 minutes. When you are finished, you will receive a customized interactive report that includes occupational and educational options based on your summary code as well as additional resources specifically for veterans and active-duty personnel.


Your online report:
  • Links military occupational specialty (MOS) titles with civilian occupation titles.
  • Matches the user’s Summary Code to Occupational Information Network (O*NET) career options and required education levels.
  • Provides information about using the skills and interests developed in the military in civilian occupations.
  • Includes a transition planning checklist.


There are many things to consider when deciding what career path is right for you. The staff at Mission United are here to help!
