Monster And Military.com Lead Initiatives To Match Employers With Transitioning Service Members And Veterans This Veterans Day

Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW), the worldwide leader in connecting people to job opportunities, and Military.com, the nation’s largest military and veteran membership organization, showcase their series of initiatives to honor veterans in the workforce and to connect transitioning service members with meaningful employment opportunities.

The Military Skills Translator, Veteran Virtual Career Fairs, the upcoming release of the Veterans Talent Index and the December Veterans Employment summit are efforts indicative of the organization’s commitment to serving the full spectrum of veteran employment needs. Monster already provides employers with tools that help them attract veteran talent on a regular basis, including veteran friendly job postings, veteran power resume search tools and access to the Military Career Ad Network.

“Veterans often have a hard time translating their own skills and shifting their mindset out of military culture and into civilian culture when talking to a hiring manager,” said retired Rear Admiral “T” McCreary, Vice President at Monster Worldwide and president of Military Advantage. “Conversely, industries and companies that do not take the extra time to learn about a veteran’s skills are missing a highly trained worker who could easily fill part of the job gap that is being attributed to the lack of a skilled workforce.”

Military Skills Translator

The job search process for veterans continues to be unfamiliar and lacks familiar structure for these men and women. Similarly for employers, locating veteran talent and aligning military experience to role requirements, has been a great challenge. Monster and Military.com’s ‘Military Skills Translator’ converts military specialties into civilian occupations and identifies similar occupations for the user to consider. The product also features career paths other veterans with similar backgrounds have taken and provides networking between veterans and transitioning personnel for mentorship on education opportunities, transition challenges and career advice based on job specialty.

Veterans Virtual Career Fairs

Monster and Military.com are committed to veteran employment issues on an ongoing basis. The company will continue to host virtual career fairs to give veterans yet another tool to help get them back to work. The next Veterans Virtual Career Fair will run November 13-15 th and is designed as an easy one-stop-shop to connect veteran seekers with the 30+ employers participating in the career fair who are looking for veterans who have strong team-oriented and leadership qualities.

Veterans Talent Index

Monster.com will release the third Veterans Talent Index (VTI) on November 15, in conjunction with Monster’s participation at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Hiring Our Heroes” event. The VTI, first introduced in November 2011, offers a snapshot of the current veteran hiring landscape in order to help connect veterans and employers more effectively. As this is our third VTI report, we can now focus on trends and emerging issues, which will enable us to provide insights and recommendations to help close the veterans’ employment gap.

National Veterans Employment Summit

On December 12, Monster will host a National Veterans Employment Summit in Washington, D.C., where leaders from both the public and private sectors will meet to share best practices and discuss the next challenges to be faced in the veterans’ employment arena.
