Hotels Defying Do Not Disturb Signs

These strings of letters and numbers tell other insiders exactly what they did every day, but what does “MOS 0369” mean to a bank recruiter or tech startup? 

For military service personnel, transitioning to civilian life can be very difficult. Many people begin their job searches on Google, so Google started with Search to help those who have served and their families.
