Stamford, CT – April 12, 2011 – Indeed.com announced its participation in First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden’s Joining Forces initiative to support military families. The company will launch Indeed Military, a collection of free tools and services to help employers connect with veterans and military spouses seeking employment. In support of the goals of Joining Forces, Indeed will offer employers free access to the Indeed Military service for one year.
“Indeed is dedicated to connecting job seekers and employers,” said Chris Hyams, Indeed’s VP of Product. “We feel fortunate to be able to support our troops and their families as part of this important initiative. Our free service will reduce cost per hire by thousands of dollars and provide employers a real incentive to seek out military family candidates.”
Starting today, veterans and military spouses can upload their resumes at www.indeed.com/military. Employers can sign up to be notified when employer services launch.
Joining Forces is a national initiative led by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to support military families in the areas of employment, education, and wellness.
