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

Minnesota Guardsmen learn survival skills, train with Norwegian counterparts

Posted: 2018-07-03  01:36 PM
NOREX 45 Over the course of 10 days, 100 Soldiers and Airmen from the Minnesota National Guard who traveled to Norway June 17-26, 2018, for the 45th Norwegian Reciprocal Troop Exchange learned valuable survival skills and shared their knowledge with members of the Norwegian Home Guard. This year's exchange was the second to take place during the summer months in the history of the longest-running military partnership between two nations.

"It was a great experience for both the Minnesota National Guard and the Norwegian Home Guard," said Capt. 'Kiwi' HorgA�ien, the senior Norwegian instructor. "A cultural exchange, a social exchange and military exchange all packed into one."

The 45th exchange got off to a late start, with flight delays causing the trip to be shortened from its normal length of two weeks. The delay meant that the Minnesota Guardsmen jumped right into training, heading out to the field after just a few hours of sleep.

DIV WFX CAMP ATTERBURY, Ind. - "A Warfighter is an exercise that allows the Division to evaluate their ability to maneuver assets in a battle," said Master Sgt. Greg Weaver, the Operations Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge for the Division Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion. "It is designed to focus on particular areas and specific objectives to be evaluated or tested."

The Division has geared its' planning and training efforts in preparation for Warfighter since July 2017. Coordinating transportation for Soldiers and equipment was often on the mind of Maj.

With the coordination of Johansson and his team, troops and equipment all converged on Camp Atterbury, enlisting the help of 89 railcars, 280 tractor-trailers, and nearly 50 buses for the movement.

"I like to say my job is to 'quiet the noise'". Johansson continued, "The noise being a real life logistical problem that could impede the exercise."
