The Destiny Group ( has been recognized as one of only three job boards, (and the only one exclusively dedicated to the military community) to promote the employment of transitioning and former military personnel.

“We are honored by this recognition of the service we provide to our country, and to those employers anxious to tap this motivated talent pool,” said Bill Gaul, President/CEO of The Destiny Group. “We have strived to develop an easy to use tool to facilitate the identification of those veterans that possess the skills and values desired by today's employers. The Destiny Group is proud to receive this recognition, adding to our credibility as the logical selection for employers to add to their recruitment toolbox.”

Destiny's job search system:

  • allows jobseekers to list qualifications and identifying data along with their resume;
  • allows individuals to self-certify as a veteran and will denote such status using the HireVetsFirst - vet check logo;
  • allows employers to list job openings and links to those openings;
  • allows employers to search existing resumes and/or send each new resume to the employers based on the employer requirement;
  • Has more than 150,000 veteran resumes;
  • has a military skill translator;
  • many additional free tools and content available to employers and jobseekers.

The Destiny Group is unique in its approach by actually operating a network of career centers for highly trafficked veteran oriented websites. Regardless of the reason a veteran comes to a partner/affiliate site such as The Air Force Association,,, or any of the other 100+ veteran oriented destinations, the 'Military Friendly Employers' are spotlighted with their opportunities, -- resulting in maximum exposure with minimum effort and cost.

For example, Destiny's unique tool allows employers to search based on either Civilian Job Titles or Military Skill codes, translating to the corresponding Military Job Title. The tool is free to use, and with one click, employers can reach qualified and readily available applicants. Resume searching packages start at only $100/month for direct employers.

“The Destiny Group's military skill translator offers users an easy, quick method to search by military skill code, military job title or civilian job title” states Michael Olen, Director of Marketing for the President's Committee “Recently I was assisting Shell Oil HR folks establish a veteran recruiting team and identify military skill codes that correlate to their existing job openings. I showed them the Destiny skill translator and they were impressed and began using the system that same day.”

Employers are encouraged to post their opportunities through one of these three certified job boards to fulfill their sincere desire and responsibility to effectively reach the veteran community.
