Recruiting For Veterans

Simply Hired, a comprehensive search engine for jobs based in Mountain View, California, has announced a new job search offering to help in the recruitment of veterans. According to a company press release, the filter provides results from DirectEmployers Association’s list of over 400 federal contractors and "vet-friendly" employers, who take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment veterans in accordance with Affirmative Action Programs, the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), and the Jobs for Veterans Act.

With military returning to the U.S. from Iraq and Afghanistan, there is a growing need for veteran employment. The United States currently is home to over 23 million veterans who have served active duty in the U.S. armed forces, according to the Office of Veteran Affairs. This large subset of the population has highly transferable military skills such as the capacity to learn new skills quickly, a strong sense of teamwork, and leadership abilities. The active security clearances that returning veterans have are also in high demand by employers. This new filter will provide a venue for veterans to perform job searches from select companies who are dedicated to hiring veterans and advancing their careers.

The company been lauded as one of the "50 Coolest Websites" by Time Magazine and declared "Best of the Web" by Business Week. Simply Hired has raised $17.7M in funding from News Corporation's Fox Interactive Media, Foundation Capital, Garage Technology Ventures and individual investors.
