Title:Information seeking behaviors of transitioning USAF officers when job hunting in North Texas
Author(s):Eaves, Tresia Dianne

Information seeking behaviors
Abstract:This explores a segment of under-served veterans who are seeking employment in North Texas. By understanding the information seeking behaviors of segments of the veteran population, improvements can be made to the systems that support their transition and training provided to improve their abilities to find information that is useful to their success in locating and maintaining employment. Using Dervin and Khulthau's information seeking models, Prell's Social Network Analysis methods, and Turkle's interview and content analysis methods, a mixed-methods approach to this study will yield answers that will be useful to the Veterans Administration (VA), to the veterans themselves, and to the agencies that support their transitions. All of society benefits when veterans can successfully integrate back into society after their service.
