Linking vets with jobs.
Hire a Hero is intended to match employers searching for employees with military qualities and skills with job seekers looking for careers. More than 600 businesses have participated and more than 180,000 individuals have registered at the site.
The site also allows military members to expand their networking abilities, especially in their home communities.
Hire a Hero and the California National Guard work with that state's public affairs office, Office of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and family services offices to assist vets in obtaining employment as well as recruiting and retention.
According to California Army Guard Col. Charlotte Miller, 694 California employers have posted more than 20,000 potential jobs on the site, and 706 connections have been made between employers and California Guard members.
