At the New York Times blog, James Dao takes a look at the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s effort to help military veterans find jobs in the civilian world. As Dao recounts, Kevin Schmiegel, a retired Marine Corps lieutenant colonel and executive director of Hiring Our Heroes, organized a team last year to create a a website that helps veterans translate their military experience into jobs that civilian employers can understand. Unveiled this week at a job fair at the 69th Regiment Armory in Manhattan, the resume engine was developed with the help from Fortune 500 human resources managers.
That's where initiatives such as Hiring Our Heroes can make a significant difference. The program trains veterans on how to communicate with civilian employers. Its online "personal branding resume engine" helps them apply their MOS to a civilian job description. Customized for all branches of the service, the engine also helps veterans develop resumes—and personal brands—that showcase their skills for non-military employers.
