AutoMax Recruiting And Training has launched an aggressive online initiative, that utilizes a comprehensive set of online tools, to bring both awareness and aid to the growing need of finding work for US Military Vets.
"As some 40,000 troops have returned home this holiday season," says Craig Lockerd, CEO of Automax Recruiting And Training. "Many of the brave men and women that fought for our freedom will be transitioning into the civilian workforce, some for the first time."
To help meet the demand, AutoMax Recruiting And Training developed a vets only job board at OnlineVetJobs.com for returning vets and employers looking to hire them. Each job posting will be fed to multiple other job boards including the Veteran Job Bank.
"We didn't stop there though," says Craig Lockerd. "We are taking it a step further and have started dozens of conversations, all over the internet, mostly with auto dealers, about the importance of hiring US Military Vets. The response has been overwhelmingly positive and we've already began a few campaigns to fill job openings with veteran job seekers."
OnlineVetJobs.com is more than a military job board, it will also house a comprehensive collection of information for both businesses that want to fill their job openings with US Military Vets and the actual vets themselves. For instance, for those businesses that want to take part in the VOW To Hire Heroes Act, that President Barack Obama signed into law on the 21st of November, can find all the info they need to take advantage of up to $9,600 in tax credit, for each US Military Vet they hire.
"I've recruited, hired and trained thousands of people in the auto industry," says Craig Lockerd. "And I've noticed, with all things being equal, that retired US Military Vets make some of the best employees. For one, they know how to work as part of a team, secondly they know how to lead, but above all they are dedicated to getting the job done right."
At OnlineVetJobs.com, a retired military vet can sign up for job alerts, post their resume and let the technology behind the site bring employers to them, all to ensure a smooth transition back into the civilian workforce. Also, to ensure complete transparency, each employer will have a comprehensive profile that the veteran can look at to learn more about a particular company.
OnlineVetJobs.com will remain open for employers to find the right US Military Vet candidates, by allowing them to post their job openings for free. AutoMax Recruiting And Train also offers, to auto dealers, a completely hands off, turnkey approach, where they will handle all the work by writing the job ads, calling each vet candidate, setting up a time for the interview, conduct the actual interview and screening process, as well as offer a complete initial training package, all to ensure a perfect fit.
