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

ETAB ANOKA, Minn. - The Minnesota National Guard lost one of its most historically significant units when the 151st Artillery's E Battery, (Target Acquisition) cased its colors in a ceremony at the Anoka High School Aug. 19, 2017.

The Target Acquisition Battery (ETAB), 151st Field Artillery is one of the oldest and most decorated units in the Minnesota National Guard and the 34th Infantry Division. "Both Minnesota and the Division lose the proud lineage that goes back to Civil War days, through WW1 and WW2, and had a significant amount of battle streamers," said 151st Field Artillery Battalion Commander, Lt. Col. Patrick Cornwell.

The 151st Field Artillery draws its lineage from the 1st Regiment, Minnesota Heavy Artillery of 1864 which fought two major campaigns in Tennessee during the Civil War.

In one month: Minnesota Guardsmen support Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria

Posted: 2017-09-29  02:25 PM
Minnesota National Guard ST. PAUL, Minn. - In the span of a few weeks, three major hurricanes hit different parts of the southern United States, causing widespread damage and destruction and requiring the response of agencies around the country. The Minnesota National Guard is one of the many organizations that have responded, sending Soldiers and Airmen to Texas, Florida, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

"This is the most gratifying deployment of my career," said Capt. Jeremy Maxey with the 133rd Airlift Wing who was called back from his vacation early to go to the Virgin Islands. "It means a lot to be able to actually directly help people. It's why I serve. Throughout my career I've deployed numerous times, but this is the one where you actually see the people you serve."

The start of the month brought the first request for assistance. On Sept. 1, two CH-47 Chinook helicopters and 11 personnel from the St. Cloud-based B Company, 2nd General Support Aviation Battalion, 211th Aviation Regiment left for Texas following Hurricane Harvey to transport personnel and equipment in support of response efforts.

Finding fellowship in the sacred mission

Posted: 2017-09-26  12:02 PM
Minnesota National Guard CAMP RIPLEY, Minn. - One of the most difficult, most sacred, honorable duties in the military is one that people don't often think about. It takes compassion, empathy, care, and requires great resilience. It is one that when called upon to train for, they hope to rarely perform because it means another Soldier has been lost. It is the duty of casualty notification officer and casualty assistance officer.

About 45 Minnesota Army National Guard Soldiers came to Camp Ripley, Minnesota, on September 21-22, 2017, for a Reset Seminar to find fellowship in one specific thing they have in common: delivering the worst news in the Army.

When a Soldier dies at home or overseas, CNOs and CAOs must notify and help families through the process, including paperwork, benefits, and funeral arrangements.
