Employer Partnership Launches Powerful Job Search Tool

On Veteran’s Day, the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces is launching its new, state-of-the-art job search portal  The portal’s tools offer National Guardsmen and Reservists, their Families, Wounded Warriors, and veterans increased capabilities when seeking employment opportunities   The portal also vastly improves our Employer Partner’s access to skilled candidates

No longer does a job seeker have to re-enter basic personal information every time a search is launched  Instead, the user simply logs in and the system can continue any previous activity  A user may now set-up a personal profile so that he or she is able to save searches, search parameters and individual job announcements within their own “dashboard”  By activating the alert option, seekers will be provided with a notification whenever a desired position is posted
The portal offers other useful features as well  The Resume Builder allows users to create and keep their resume available within the system  Service members have an additional feature available to them: access to the Program Support Manager network for career counseling and resume assistance  The new portal’s functionality improvements make the search and application process much more efficient, saving Service members and other job seekers time

But the improvements don’t stop there  Employers will find the new portal more useful as well  They are now able to enter position vacancies directly into the system and track those jobs, applications and views through their company dashboard  Employers may also reach in to the system and locate the resumes of qualified candidates who may not have had the chance to apply themselves  So just by posting your resume you may be contacted by one of our military-friendly employer partners who need your skills

If you had used the old job search engine you should definitely check out the new portal  Although the web link, wwwEmployerPartnershiporg  is the same, you are now in the driver’s seat and this definitely is not your father’s Oldsmobile

Editor’s note: The Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces is a no-fee program which connects Service members, their Families and veterans with employment opportunities  The program has more than 1,150 military-friendly employer partners across the nation
