Military History

Page Location: Applicant File > Experience > Military History

Based on Group Security settings, users can add, edit or delete military history.

The Military History Tab tracks all the relevant military experience an applicant has which can be evaluated in the job search.  Records can be added to this tab a few different ways. For this overview, the focus will be on the last option.  This information could overlap the employment history page but does capture a few additional pieces of information.

  1. A record can be added manually by the applicant.
  2. A record can be automatically added via the parsing engine when the applicant uploads his/her resume.
  3. Records are added via the Military History page.
