Cincinnati (PRWEB) November 12, 2005
RecruitMilitary, LLC, and The Manufacturing Institute (MI) of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) have announced that they will partner to promote the hiring of military veterans by the Association’s member companies. RecruitMilitary offers online hiring products and other tools that can help NAM member companies and other employers find skilled employees among the men and women who have served in the United States armed forces.
RecruitMilitary offers subscriptions that entitle employers to view its database of 95,000 job candidates who have military backgrounds, and to post an unlimited number of job descriptions that are viewable by those candidates. The database, at http://www.recruitmilitary.com, is highly diverse with respect to branch of the service, military rank or rate, gender, and ethnicity.
“This partnership will have several benefits,” said Drew Myers, President of RecruitMilitary and a former Marine Captain. “Veteran job seekers will gain access to many more job postings, and their resumes will be accessible to many more employers than at present. The Manufacturing Institute will offer NAM member companies a great new way to meet their staffing needs. And participating companies will acquire the capability of posting jobs at our site and will obtain access to our database.”
“We feel that hiring those who have served is the right thing to do,” said Myers, “and it certainly makes good economic sense. Today’s typical soldier, sailor, airman, Marine, or Coast Guardsman/Guardswoman combines outstanding personal traits such as leadership, initiative, and self-discipline with a strong educational background and excellent training. Almost 100% of personnel who are currently on active duty have a high-school education, and roughly 95% of commissioned officers are college graduates.”
NAM members that participate in the initiative will be entitled to display a special graphic identifying themselves as “Veteran-Friendly Employers.” The graphic will be available as an electronic file for participating members’ Websites, e-mail messages, and other online communications; and for their stationery, business cards, brochures, bulletins, and other print materials.
RecruitMilitary, LLC, founded in 1998, offers online hiring products, hiring-based advertising space in online and print media, contingency hiring services, and participation in job fairs. The company mails more than 52,000 copies of a quarterly, print newsletter called Incoming! to over 220 military bases throughout the world. All of RecruitMilitary’s officers, account executives, and recruiters are either military veterans or are active in the reserve forces. The company is headquartered in Cincinnati and has eight field offices throughout the U.S.
The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest industrial trade association in the United States. It represents small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. It works to enhance the competitiveness of manufacturers by shaping a legislative and regulatory environment conducive to U.S. economic growth and to increase understanding among policymakers, the media, and the general public about the vital role of manufacturing to America’s economic future and living standards. The NAM is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has 10 regional field offices throughout the United States.
The Manufacturing Institute is the research and education arm of the NAM, building intellectual support, and raising understanding among policymakers, the media, educators, and potential workers about manufacturing’s contributions to the quality of American life, the challenges facing the sector, and its excellent, technologically sophisticated career opportunities. The Manufacturing Institute was founded in 1991.
