The Missouri State Library has launched a support and guidance program for veterans and their families.
Brainfuse VetNow will help veterans navigate Veterans Affairs, provide academic tutoring and assist with employment transition.
The State Library, which is a division of the Missouri Secretary of State's Office, works with community libraries to connect veterans with services through home.brainfuse.com.
VetNow includes live online navigators -- trained veterans -- who can help their peers connect with valuable benefits and resources. Navigators may:
• Answer questions related to benefits eligibility.
• Refer patrons to applicable community resources for housing, health care and education.
• Connect patrons with accredited claims agents.
VetNow is designed to help with all stages of job hunting. Its "Job Tools" feature career coaching, résumé assistance, interview preparation and more.
Patrons can use the career resources to discover the best career fit based on education, experience and personality. They can search for a job using local and nationwide resources. Patrons can download templates for most common résumé types, receive résumé and cover letter assistance, brush up on interview techniques or get live online interview practice from trained job coaches.
Patrons can also build academic skills and prepare for college-level subjects. They can access lessons, tutorials and practice tests for SAT, ACT, TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills), HESI (Health Education Systems Incorporated), GRE (Graduate Record Examination), GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) and others.
