FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VETERAN-FOCUSED SOCIAL JOBS PLATFORM PARTNERS WITH EMPLOYERS FOR GREAT CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
Vouch4Vets.com launches pilot across U.S., linking veterans with jobs at Symantec and other global companies.
Emeryville, Calif. – JULY 11, 2018 -- Vouch4Vets.com, a new Web-based social platform that brings a vital aspect of hiring -- references -- to the front of the process via short video testimonials, is partnering with major corporations, including Symantec, to match U.S. veterans with professional employment opportunities specifically targeting former military members and their spouses.
Veterans and spouses using Vouch4Vets.com’s innovative platform will be able to engage job listings during pilot testing in key geographic areas, including parts of California, the greater Salt Lake area in Utah, Arizona and parts of the East Coast.
“Veterans seeking better jobs or entering the civilian job market for the first time will be able to uniquely engage with hiring managers and recruiters from stellar companies that are hiring veterans on priority,” says David Brennan, chief executive officer of Vouch4Vets.com.
By leveraging their advocates through short video testimonials early in the hiring process using Vouch4Vets.com’s free platform, veteran candidates can transcend obstacles that in the past may have caused them to get overlooked. “Hiring managers or recruiters often pass up resumes from veterans as they may not understand the significance of past work due to acronym-heavy military speak,” Brennan adds.
Vouch4Vets.com’s mission is to help veterans and their spouses find jobs they really want. It does so by putting a veteran job-seeker’s advocates (references) first in the hiring process, rather than at the end. Its platform makes it easy to collect short video testimonials, allowing candidates to apply to jobs with that advocacy at the ready. The upfront approach is convenient for advocates, hiring managers and the job seeker, and removes the need for the old-fashioned telephone reference.
Testimonials on video allow the hiring company to get a strong sense of the candidate’s character and background. To get started, veterans and spouses should go to www.Vouch4Vets.com and create a profile, and then through the platform, invite their advocates to create a short video testimonial. The advocates will be provided with question prompts that test both hard and soft skills, and the process will take about five minutes. Once the video testimonial is complete, the veteran will be able to engage in new job listings by global companies partnering with Vouch4Vets.com.
Partner companies hiring veterans through Vouch4Vets.com’s pilot program are seeking candidates for jobs in the following cities: California (Cupertino, Los Angeles, Pleasanton, Sacramento and Santa Monica), Austin and Plano, Tex., Draper, UT, Wilmington, Del., Tempe, Ariz., Reston, Va., and Burlington, Mass. Military veterans seeking career opportunities should go now to Vouch4Vets.com to complete their profiles and invite their advocates to participate.
Vouch4Vets.com partners with veteran services organizations, veteran groups and hiring companies to advocate for veterans in a competitive hiring market. The Vouch4Vets team is a collection of military veterans, technologists, futurists and HR experts, striving to make the connections between talented veterans and job prospects stronger and better. Based in Emeryville, Calif., Vouch4Vets.com was launched in 2017 by David Brennan, a career human resources leader with over 20 years’ experience in hiring practices and recruiting.
