Joining Forces to Serve More Transitioning Service Members
We are pleased to announce that RecruitMilitary is joining forces with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) to bring career resources and opportunities to transitioning military service members and their spouses through the inaugural Employment Navigator and Partnership Pilot Initiative.
Through this newly formed partnership, RecruitMilitary and eight other non-government organizations will serve as resources for Employment Navigators who directly assist transitioning service members, and their spouses, one-on-one with employment related assistance, which include self-assessments, career exploration, identification of high-demand occupations and necessary credentials, and analyzing detailed local labor market information. Based upon an individual participant’s needs, Employment Navigators then connect them with partner organizations that can provide additional employment-related services designed to facilitate their transition from the military.
RecruitMilitary provides a variety of pathways utilizing virtual and in-person capabilities for veterans to find great careers with competitive pay. The organization’s partnership with US Department of Labor VETS program allows veterans to access a direct source of support at the onset and duration of the civilian career seeking and building journey.
“Our partnership with the Department of Labor’s VETS program allows us to reach and support more transitioning military, veterans and military spouses than ever before,” said RecruitMilitary CEO Tim Best, a former U.S. Army Special Operations attack helicopter pilot. “The inaugural Employment Navigator service synergizes our desire to directly impact the career seeking and building opportunities of military trained job seekers. We are grateful for the confidence that the US Department of Labor places in us and we look forward to working together to support veterans and their families.”
“We are pleased that RecruitMilitary is participating in the Employment Navigator and Partnership Pilot Initiative,” said Ivan Denton, Director, National Programs, US Department of Labor, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service. “Meaningful career opportunities are a priority for transitioning service members and their families. With RecruitMilitary’s support, we can meet many of the needs of these job seekers.”
