Veterans' Corner - March 23, 2014

U.S. technology trade associations, in an online community, is partnering to help veterans transition to civilian careers. The initiative , U.S. Tech Vets, connects veterans to employment in the technology sector. U.S. Tech Vets was unveiled Jan. 8 during the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nev.

The U.S. tech industry understands that hiring veterans is more than just the right thing to do. It’s a smart business investment. U.S. Tech Vets offers a platform to connect meaningful employment opportunities with the skilled and dedicated men and women who served. The website, www.ustechvets.org, features a military skills translator that matches a veterans skills to civilian jobs. Veterans can also access a searchable database of positions open at participating technology associations and tap into educational resources to help them develop skills to thrive in a private-sector career.  

U.S. Tech Vets is sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association, Northern Virginia Technology Council and Monster.com. Participating professional associations include Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association, Central Station Alarm Association, CompTia, Electronic Security Association, National Association of Broadcasters, Professional Services Council, Security Industry Association, Telecommunications Industry Association and Wireless Infrastructure Association.

Besides posting available jobs, member companies of these associations will be actively looking for potential employees by searching resumes uploaded by veterans. By combining Monster’s technology and audience reach, with support of these technology associations and employers, the site will create the largest collection of veterans job candidates and technology industry jobs available anywhere.

The technology industry continues to be one of America’s fastest growing industries and is hungry for high quality talent. Veterans bring skills and experience to jobs, such as leadership, team building, motivation, work ethic and quick thinking, as well as experience in a mission-focused environment.  These qualities are highly prized in the technology sector.

Hire a veteran; you won’t be sorry. Speak to you again next week.
