DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and RecruitMilitary will host the Atlanta Veterans Job Fair April 11 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for veterans, transitioning military personnel, National Guard members, Reservists and military spouses. This event features 75-plus employers and coincides with RecruitMilitary’s new partnership with Google and its MOS Job Search Tool for military trained talent.
Google’s new MOS Job Search Tool changes the way Atlanta’s military trained talent can find civilian jobs based upon their military job experience. Job candidates can now use RecruitMilitary’s job board to preview available job opportunities in Atlanta or nationwide and experience a refined search that’s powered by Google’s machine learning algorithms and built-in military occupational specialty (MOS) understanding to civilian job matching.
The new search function is key to those veterans or service members who are actively seeking new career opportunities but are unsure of where to begin. Now with help from Google’s search, RecruitMilitary provides an enhanced running start that is needed by job seekers who are new to the civilian job search process.
This functionality will make it easier for veterans to find the next step in their career in the civilian workforce
In early testing of this service, RecruitMilitary’s average daily job searches by logged in job seekers is up 37%, and daily job applications submitted by job candidates are up 91%.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s February report, the rate of veteran unemployment holds steady at an all-time historic low – currently at 2.7%, which means military trained talent is in demand by civilian employers. Now Google and RecruitMilitary are making it easier for both job seekers and employers by changing the job search and job placement processes for both parties.
