The Department of Defense Transition Assistance Program (DoDTAP) -  Designed to provide separating Service members and Veterans access to Transition Assistance documents which will assist them during their transition process from the military. Obtaining a VMET document lists your military experience and training which may have application to employment in the private sector: Specifically the VMET document lists the civilian occupations, with the Dictionary of Occupational Title (DOT) number that relate to a veteran’s exact military occupational code. The DOT number gives the definition of the civilian career and gives the corresponding ONET civilian occupation. * Note that the Navy goes by officer designators, not military occupational codes, for officers, which can mislead if one doesn’t understand that the Navy has its own occupational codes.
