We know time is important. The less time it takes a veteran to find a civilian career, the better it is for them, their families, and their community. Reducing time to hire for employers is critical to business success. We translated thousands of military skill codes into transferable skills employers are looking for. Our proprietary program removes the barriers of a resume and applying for jobs online. Our skills matching program makes the human connection using unique data sets and an algorithm. We open the door for veterans to connect with employers intentionally hiring veterans for their skills. Here’s how our program works:
Military Members and Spouses: Create a FREE skills profile based on your military experience, military and civilian occupation, education & training, licenses, and certifications. Complete your career preferences to indicate your desired work location, availability, and salary requirements. That’s it. Employers’ job profiles will be matched with you based on your skills profile. They will contact you for an interview. We connect you as a qualified candidate.
Employers: Create unlimited job profiles listing the required skills for your jobs. Our program matches job profiles to the candidate’s skills profile with the highest percentage of match criteria. Then, review an unlimited number of matched candidate profiles. Once you’ve viewed the candidate’s profile, unlock the contact information and reach out to the candidate with the confidence they have the skills you are looking for.
How We Got Here
Veterans ASCEND was created by a veteran who is also a certified HR professional. Taking from our transition out of the military, and our subsequent work in the Human Resources field, we learned a few things: 1) Veterans can have a hard time translating their military experience into skills for the civilian sector hiring process. 2) Veterans spend countless hours on job boards submitting resumes and never receive feedback. 3) Employers across the country can have a hard time connecting with veterans even if they are close to a military installation. 4) Employers may not understand a military resume and how a veteran’s military experience translates to the skills they need for their company. Lastly, 5) Factor in the limited time HR departments have to review resumes, and veterans can be quickly overlooked for positions where they can use their skills to help a business succeed. The Veterans ASCEND model answers the call, reversing the hiring process, decreasing time to hire, and allowing the employer to see how the veteran’s skills fit across the organization.
Our service is completely FREE for all military members and spouses. For employers, our subscription model is based on hiring activity. Monthly or Annual options are available to unlock candidates. Unlimited job profiles, not pay per job. Unlimited match reviews of true candidates not applicants.
