America's Job Exchange Joins Forces with VetSuccess.gov to Expand Job Opportunities for U.S. VeteransPioneer in Diversity Hiring Continues its Commitment to Getting Veterans Back to Work.
ANDOVER, MA, July 28, 2011 - America's Job Exchange (AJE), the leading employment website for diversity candidates, including veterans, announced today a joint partnership with the United States Department of Veteran Affairs, to provide comprehensive resources and job listings on VetSuccess.gov, a preeminent site for veterans. The joint venture creates one of the most comprehensive resources for veterans looking to transition from military service to the civilian workforce.
"Veterans face higher unemployment rates than their civilian counterparts, upwards of 13 percent nationwide currently. Coupled with this they have unique challenges when it comes to their job search, such as lacking a degree due to forgoing education in lieu of military service," said Rathin Sinha, president, America's Job Exchange. "We're pleased to partner with VetSuccess.gov who share our commitment to putting veterans back to work. This partnership brings together two venerable portals focused on one goal - the job needs of our Nation's veterans. "
America's Job Exchange's robust, specialized Veterans Career Exchange will now be featured on VetSuccess.gov and provide a diverse network of job sites, articles and tools to help veteran job seekers match military skills to civilian occupations. Veterans can access a wide-range of resources, including:
- Search thousands of jobs across the U.S. in every state from top employers looking for talent and leadership
- Set up and quickly distribute their resume to a network of specialized career sites
- Create Job Scouts that deliver jobs matching their skills and experience
- Get helpful tips on resume writing, interviewing skills and career search tactics
- Access other up-to-date articles, educational information, and more
