On the heels of an invitation to the White House by First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, job search engine Indeed is announcing the launch of Indeed Military, a new service dedicated to helping military families find employment.
According to the company’s blog, Indeed was invited to the White House to join the First Lady and the wife of Vice President Joe Biden to mark the launch of the Joining Forces initiative to support military families.
The initiative will provide support in the areas of employment, education, and wellness.
In conjunction, Indeed’s new military site will provide tools for employers to connect with veterans and military spouses seeking employment.
Indeed said as an added incentive, it will give employers free access to Indeed Military service for one year.
Veterans and military spouses can upload their resumes at www.indeed.com/military. Employers can sign up to be notified when employer services launches.
“Indeed is dedicated to connecting job seekers and employers,” said Chris Hyams, Indeed’s VP of Product. “We feel fortunate to be able to support our troops and their families as part of this important initiative. Our free service will reduce cost per hire by thousands of dollars and provide employers a real incentive to seek out military family candidates.”
