Advanced Job Board Emails Job Matches to Candidates
WASHINGTON, DC and SAN FRANCISCO, CA - March 22, 2001 - Military.com's new Job Finder Service makes finding civilian jobs easier for transitioning personnel, spouses and prior service members. Users of the free Military.com Job Finder Service can have jobs that match their skills e-mailed to them.
Military.com Career Services have quickly grown into the largest job resource for the military community. Over 100,000 job seekers actively use the services to connect to top tier employers like AT&T, USAA, Arthur Andersen and Nokia. Premier firms in the telecommunications, consulting, information technology, aerospace and defense industries are posting jobs with Military.com.
Unlike traditional job boards that rely on resumes and depend on companies having a deep understanding of military skills, Military.com Job Finder Service is skills-driven. Users simply input their skills and describe the type of job they seek. Jobs meeting their profile are displayed, and emails are sent when new matching jobs are posted by employers.
"Translating resumes from military to civilian terms is a difficult task. Our system alleviates the skills translation barrier by focusing> on skills, not job titles. Employers like our system because they can conveniently access the military talent pool without worrying about understanding military job titles," said CEO Christopher Michel, Naval Reservist and founder of Military.com, the largest online military destination and the Internet presence of Military Advantage.
"The goal of our career service is to help transitioning and prior service members make the most of military experience in their civilian careers. We make it easy for employers to reach job seekers with military experience, and we communicate the value of military service to employers who have not traditionally sought candidates with military backgrounds," said Michel.
