Veterans Hire Veterans Employment Network

MELBOURNE, Fla., Nov. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Veteran Owned Business (VOB) will celebrate their 11th anniversary this Veterans Day.  As a benefit to their members—and to continue with their mission–VOB has created the Veterans Hire Veterans Employment Network as a FREE way for members/supporters to look to veterans, military spouses and the military community in general to fill temporary openings this holiday season in addition to permanent career opportunities.

Veterans Hire Veterans“Our mission since we first launched back on Veterans Day 2008 has been to help empower military veterans who own businesses to: (a) grow their respective businesses… (b) hire fellow veterans and… (c) give back to military/veteran nonprofit organizations,” said VOB’s Founder, Brian K. St.Ours. “We’ve got (a) and (c) above covered…and now it’s with great pride that we offer this FREE resource for those who prefer to hire veterans!”

The Veterans Hire Veterans Employment Network is a FREE job/resume bank that allows VOB’s over 33,000 members and millions in the military community an easy way to post jobs and search resumes. Veterans, active duty military and military spouses can submit resumes as well as search for open positions by visiting VeteransHireVeterans.com.

“We’ve received 1,000s of calls over the years—particularly around the holidays—from both employers and job seekers looking for help,” added St.Ours. “Our goal since the beginning has been to find an easy and free way for both sides to meet in the middle. We are in no way trying to compete with paid recruitment sites… we are simply giving our members/supporters another tool to hire those who proudly served our great country!”
