In a new plan to help veterans obtain employment the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has partnered with Monster Government Solutions to help veterans gain employment.
Monster Government Solutions is a division of Monster Worldwide, Inc., which is a company that markets online employment services to employers and job seekers.
They will partner with the VA to provide veteran-owned small businesses with opportunity to list job openings for veterans, which will include service-disabled veterans. These businesses will be given a large discount and Monster will list these jobs for twice as long as they do for other employers.
According to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Dr. James B. Peake, "This government-corporate partnership represents the best kind of effort to help those who gave up time in their lives to serve their country and return to an economic community that may not recognize their skills. The program should make it easier for employers to find qualified job candidates as well as veteran suppliers and service contractors."
Veteran business owners must be listed in the VA's online Vendor Information Pages, found at http://www.vetbiz.gov/.
This partnership between the VA and Monster Government Solutions will initially be for two years and provides for extensions. The VetBiz Registry is a service of the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Center for Veterans Enterprise.
