Military Advantage, Inc. Key Developments

Military.com Launches New App That Will Allow Service Members Instantaneous Access to Information About Their Pay and Allowances from Their Mobile Devices

Military.com launched a new app that will allow service members instantaneous access to information about their pay and allowances from their mobile devices. The subject of pay continues to be one of the most popular topics on Military.com and the website's pay calculator has been used extensively over the past decade. More and more users access information on their mobile devices prompting Military.com to launch the new pay app that can be accessed by iOS and Android devices. The app allows service members and their families to accurately predict their compensation and calculate possible changes or additional pay they may be eligible for because of job changes or new qualifications in a specialty area. The app also features reference information and articles about finances, budgets and other information. Military pay is a complicated formula that begins with monthly base pay based on rank and years of service. But that base pay is then augmented by housing allowances, family separation allowances, aviation career pay, sea pay, imminent danger pay, hazardous duty pay or any number of different kinds of special duty pay or board certified jobs in the military. Military.com has also launched a series of other improvements including optimized viewing on mobile devices for videos, the Equipment Guide and an update to the Job Fair Listing page, one of the most popular pages within the Veteran Jobs section.

Military.com Appoints Greg Smith as President

Military.com announced the selection of Greg Smith as the new President of the military website. Smith retired from the Navy in 2011. He held several high profile positions as an Admiral, including leading the communication efforts of U.S. and NATO operations in Afghanistan, and as head of public affairs for U.S. operations in Iraq. In addition, Smith served in key leadership roles as Director of Communication at U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida and as the Navy's Chief of Information in Washington, DC. Smith has an extensive national security background with multiple tours of duty in the Pentagon, and overseas in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Military.com Adds Several New Features to Transition Center

Military.com announced they have added several new features to their Transition Center in order to better serve the needs of transitioning servicemembers. The Transition Center now features a personalized Transition Action Plan for those leaving the military, those retiring from a career in the military and those serving in the National Guard and Reserve for whom transition is a different experience. The Transition Action Plan tool guides the servicemember using a timeline that recommends specific actions to take at corresponding key points in the transition process; whether they are leaving the service immediately or up to 18 months ahead of time. The Action Plan provides automatic notifications about when and how to craft a resume, advice on professional networking and detailed information to prepare for the financial aspects of transition from government service to the civilian sector. The Transition Center also features useful articles, valuable reference material, easy to use check lists and a periodic e-newsletter. The job search process for veterans continues to be unfamiliar and lacks structure for job seekers. Conversely, employers have struggled to locate veteran talent and align military experience to role requirements. Monster.com and Military.com's Military Skills Translator converts military specialties into civilian occupations and identifies similar occupations for the user to consider. Additionally, the Veteran Career Network on Military.com features career paths other veterans with similar backgrounds have taken and provides networking between veterans and transitioning personnel for mentorship on education opportunities, transition challenges and career advice based on job specialty. The site also features many jobs for veterans.
