In time for Veterans Day 2018, Virtual Vocations, Inc. released their list of the best telecommute career options for military veterans transitioning to work in civilian job sectors. Top remote work fields include business operations, computer systems, and engineering.

"We would like to thank all military members and veterans for their service and dedication," said Laura Spawn, CEO and Co-Founder of Virtual Vocations. "Virtual Vocations will always proudly advocate for telecommuting as a practical work model and work-life balance solution for veterans and the families of active duty military personnel."

Looking at their company data as well as national job trends, Virtual Vocations determined the telecommute job industries for which military veterans would likely find success in their searches for civilian work.

The company's list of the Top 10 Remote Jobs for Veterans highlights career fields and roles that would be well-suited to the technical and soft skills military members typically exhibit.

Within their ranking of remote jobs for military veterans, Virtual Vocations also lists remote job title examples within each field, key skills needed for each industry, job outlooks for every category, and median salary amounts for all of the remote job sectors considered ideal for military veterans.

For salary details, Virtual Vocations utilizes U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data. The company notes that these amounts do not necessarily reflect initial wages for veterans re-entering the civilian labor force, however, the median wage amounts from the BLS provide a baseline for what veterans can expect to earn as they gain work experience as well as how to set reasonable income goals.

In addition to the top 10 list of remote job options for veterans, Virtual Vocations identified 13 attractive soft skills and attributes military personnel tend to acquire during their service. These skills bolster the already keen hireability of veterans for civilian roles:

1. Problem-solving
2. Troubleshooting

5. Leadership

8. Analysis
9. Critical thinking
10. Stamina

13. Training

Possessing a security clearance is another qualification many military veterans have that is advantageous during the hiring process. Remote jobs in fields like systems administration, cybersecurity engineering, software engineering, and computational science often require a security clearance or the ability to obtain one. Military veterans with an existing security clearance can highlight this qualification in their resumés and during job interviews.
