Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 19, 2006
In response to a recent U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs hearing finding that 20 to 24 year old veterans now have an unemployment rate of over 15 percent, much higher than the national average, MilitaryJobHunts.com, the military employment assistance portal (MEAP) for ex-military forces veterans with security, technical, and management expertise, announced today that it is extending a special discount offer for its job assistance services to unemployed ex-military forces veterans ages 20 to 24.
"Every military forces veteran has problems finding employment. I did when I transitioned from the U.S. Navy 19 years ago," said Randall Scasny, Director of MilitaryJobHunts.com. "But today's young veterans are extraordinarily challenged by today's job market. We decided to offer our comprehensive job hunt assistance service at a huge discount to help these fine Americans discover new, meaningful careers."
Today's job market is an increasingly challenging one for any job candidate, and, especially so for the young. While military retirees can market a career's worth of job skills and experience, young veterans many times are "outgunned" when they are competing head to head with other, more experienced job candidates.
The classic way of improving a young veteran's employability is through retraining. The traditional sources of veteran job search assistance provide this educational and retraining counseling.
"The traditional career transition service providers do an excellent job at determining what additional skills a young veteran needs and which programs are suitable to fill those skill gaps, " says Mr. Scasny. "However, what often happens is that once a young veteran completes retraining, he or she continues to be challenged by the ever changing market that morphs new jobs skill needs on a daily basis. Focusing only a skill gaps misses the real issue, which is stiff competition. And that's the central focus of our comprehensive job search assistance service."
MilitaryJobHunts.com's Comprehensive Job Hunt Assistance Service consists of:
1. Creation of an industry-targeted, competitively-layer, database-searchable resume (CV).
2. Creation of 3 types of persuasive cover letters.
3. Competitive Job Market Positioning Reasearch and Analysis
4. Comprehensive Military Job Search Campaign Plan (that consists of six-targeted, sub-campaigns that revolve around the universal, competitive focuses of military veterans.
5. Assistance in implementing the Comprehensive Job Search Campaign.
This service is list priced at $599. For the first 100 veterans who decide to purchase this service, they will pay the special discount price of only $99.00. To purchase the special discount service go here: http://www.militaryjobhunts.com/young_veteran_discount.html
"We feel very strongly that our young veterans deserve quality, job search assistance," said Mr. Scasny.
