Military Crosswalk


We are excited to provide our Military Crosswalk to help you search for jobs! When reviewing a job posting you can use the Crosswalk to match the occupational codes from each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces to Texas State's job titles.

How to use the Military Crosswalk?


• Click the desired occupational code within the Crosswalk to review the military ratings and description for the position.

• Click on the corresponding Texas State job title to compare with the military description.

How to apply for a job as a Veteran


Search for positions through the Texas State Jobs website and apply for either staff, faculty, or student positions.

Indicate eligibility for veteran’s preference by selecting either "yes" or "no" in your online application. Veteran status is later verified during the application process.
