DirectEmployers Association Supporting Veterans Employment by Adding 1.1 Million Jobs to the HonorGuard Network Database
INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- DirectEmployers Association today announced it has entered into a new partnership with the HonorGuard Network (HGN) resulting in the addition of roughly 1.1 million jobs to the HGN Direct Jobs Database, a nationwide direct employer database of jobs offered to all U.S. military personnel, veterans, spouses, families and caregivers.
Users can access the HGN Direct Jobs Database by visiting the HonorGuard Network website, clicking on the 'Jobs' link in the top navigation bar, then selecting the 'Direct Jobs Database' link listed in the drop down menu. A translation tool is available to military personnel to find jobs related to their MOS/MOC code, in addition to other job search parameters such as location, keyword and company name.
"DirectEmployers Association is privileged to support HGN's mission of honoring our military servicemen and women, veterans and their families by providing them with an expanded database of job openings," commented Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers Association.
Founded in 2011, the HonorGuard Network was created on the basic principle of honoring our military servicemen and women, who guard the rights and basic freedoms that we as Americans enjoy each day. While membership in the network is free, the services of HGN are possible through the generosity of their corporate partners. Since creation, this one-stop portal has provided service members with access to a database of jobs, assistance transitioning from military to civilian life and a connection to communication services.
"We are proud to partner with DirectEmployers Association," states Jeff Wohlwend, Chief Executive Officer, HonorGuard Network. "With the addition of these jobs, we are able to provide a wider array of employment opportunities for our users, in turn helping them more easily transition from their military duties into the civilian workforce."
Their revolutionary one-stop web portal was designed specifically to connect veterans and active military members directly to employers who share in HGN's vision of showing commitment to our military member's future success in the civilian world. HGN believes the dedication and skillsets our service members possess qualify them as some of the most desirable candidates for the available jobs.
