Northern Virginia Technology Council Launches Veteran Employment Program Powered By Monster

Monster.com, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), today announced that it is co-chairing the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) Veterans Employment Initiative and powering its online community and job board . The announcement was made during an event today that included remarks by Gov. Bob McDonnell and Sen. Mark Warner.

Steve Cooker, Executive Vice President, Global Government Solutions for Monster Worldwide, who serves as a co-chair of the NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative, spoke about why Monster is taking such an active role in the program, “This NVTC initiative aligns with our mission perfectly. At Monster, what we do is connect people with job opportunities - it’s in our DNA. Part of our deep and rich legacy working with the military and veterans comes from our subsidiary, Military.com. We also develop innovative solutions that help put veterans back to work – the military skills translator is a perfect example. Plus, we live here. We’re part of the Northern Virginia business community and we saw this NVTC initiative bringing all of those elements together right in our back yard.”

The company developed the online career site and the tools within it that veterans and employers will be using. Those innovative tools include the online community itself, and, for veterans, a Military Skills Translator, resume builder, career advice and a job search function. For employers, Monster’s unique job search technology, Power Resume Search, is made available to NVTC members along with easy job posting capabilities and free access to the veteran resume database with more than 800,000 veteran resumes.

“The NVTC Veterans Employment Initiative is about bringing together the technology business community with our region’s academic institutions and policymakers to create an ecosystem where veterans’ valuable skills and talents are matched to private sector needs,” said NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg. “We are extremely grateful to Steve Cooker and the entire Monster team for the time and resources they’ve invested in this initiative. Through the dedication and commitment of companies like Monster, our goal is to increase veteran employment in Virginia’s technology community and expedite veterans’ transition into civilian employment.”
