Program focused on connecting transitioning service members, military spouses and veterans with civilian job opportunities and resources
SPRINGFIELD, Va. (March 12, 2019) – Today, Hope For The Warriors® launched Warrior’s Compass, powered by JobPath, a web-based employment search engine and career support hub designed to assist transitioning service members, military spouses and veterans with locating employment in the civilian community.
Made possible by the support of Clayton Home Building Group®, Warrior’s Compass is part of Hope For The Warriors’ transition services programming, offering resources for veterans starting new careers, as well as helping employers find qualified veteran or military spouse candidates.
As a national nonprofit, Hope For The Warriors assists veterans, service members and military families with a variety of programming, including clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation and transition services.
Accessed by applying for services within the nonprofit, Warrior’s Compass offers a comprehensive range of resources including resume support, job training, military skills translation, candidate matching and structured mentorship from other veterans. It also offers access to over 1,500 companies nationwide looking to hire veterans or military spouses.
“Warrior’s Compass is not a typical job board,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president/CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “The program is designed to address the issues of veteran recruitment, retention and military spouse employment with access to companies looking to hire within the military community.”
Warrior’s Compass allows employers to identify candidates that best match their job description through a searchable database of over 200,000 (and growing) highly qualified veteran and military spouse applicants, post and promote jobs, utilize a dynamic applicant tracking system, and find resources on best veteran hiring practices. Fifty percent of the posting and recruiter license fees benefit Hope For The Warriors.
