Now CareerBuilder and Military Times are joining forces at
www.MilitaryTimes.com/Jobs to help veterans access the tools and information they need to connect them with the employers who most want to hire them. The Military Times Network, which includes ArmyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com, NavyTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com, in addition to MilitaryTimes.com, is visited by more than 2.5 million unique visitors each month, and offers unique content for each of the branches of the U.S. military online, and in print.

"The unemployment rate for veterans of
Iraq, though declining, is still considerably higher than the general population," said
Brent Rasmussen, president of CareerBuilder North America. "While military veterans possess a great deal of the business-friendly skills that employers look for in candidates, one of the challenges vets face is knowing where to begin when job hunting after they return from active duty."
"Today's military is a well-educated, professional, all-volunteer force," said
Elaine Howard, president of Gannett Government Media Corp., publisher of the Military Times brands. "So when troops join the civilian workforce, they bring with them skills, discipline and unmatched drive. But navigating the job search and translating military skills into civilian terms has always been a challenge. In partnering with CareerBuilder, troops and veterans now have a better way to make the critical transition from military to civilian success."
Military Times Military Times has teamed up with CareerBuilder on a new career site for service members and veterans. The site hosts a wide range of jobs across industries from employers eager to hire veterans and a comprehensive tool set for veterans to use in their job search. Employers in turn will be able to quickly reach a nationwide pool of veteran talent that is quick to learn, trained to take initiative, and adaptable to change.
