LOOKING for a JOB? “Veterans Ascend” is a new Veteran employment organization that is helping Veterans connect with employers. It has developed a new web-based veteran employment system that changes the way employers find and hire veterans. When an employer creates a job profile, the system matches the veteran’s skills profile with the employers' job profile. No resume required. This is a free service for Veterans, employers pay all the fees. All Veterans need to do is visit the website www.veteransascend.com and take 5-10 minutes to complete a profile.
