Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
CareersinGear.com®, a division of Dominion Enterprises, is joining The Employment Guide’s "Putting Veterans Back to Work" initiative. Due to its success as a four-week showcase featuring nearly 2,000 jobs and 65 companies, the showcase has been expanded into an ongoing effort aimed at helping veterans find trucking and transportation jobs in the civilian sector.
The expanded initiative, scheduled to coincide with Veterans Day, will connect former servicemen and women with top employers in the transportation industry looking to hire candidates with military experience.
“By partnering with CareersinGear.com, we are providing veterans an opportunity to customize their job search based on specific interests within trucking and transportation. These industries recognize the value of military experience and welcome the vast array of transferable skills veterans bring to the table. This is a win-win for everyone involved,” said Michael Godina, Creative Director of The Employment Guide.
Earlier this month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the veteran unemployment rate dropped to 6.3 percent as of October 2012. "Putting Veterans Back to Work" supports this downward trend by presenting a wide spectrum of employment opportunities exclusively to veterans.
“The companies taking part in our initiative understand how veterans contribute to a dynamic workforce. We believe it is our duty to support these brave men and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. Providing easy access to meaningful, long-term employment is one way to acknowledge their heroic service,” said Vice President/General Manager Chris Baker.
Employers participating in "Putting Veterans Back to Work" will be featured in CareersinGear.com’s online, mobile, email and print campaigns. CareersinGear.com considers the growing role of mobile devices in today’s job hunt by enabling veterans to view and apply for available positions on a mobile-optimized site. The print publication will be available in high-traffic areas in 26 major markets across the country including workforce centers and Veterans Affairs offices. Job seekers will be able to find opportunities and career resources from companies such as Sperry Rail, LSG Sky Chef-Dallas and Triple Crown Services Company.
