DirectEmployers Creates Job Matching Program for Veterans

April 11, 2011 – DirectEmployers Association, a non-profit consortium of over 600 leading U.S. employers, has announced an online program to assist transitioning military personnel in all branches of our armed forces, their spouses, dependents, and caregivers in finding employment. The program will provide military personnel and their dependents access to more than 860,000 employment opportunities from over 90,000 employers nationwide. The Association announced that over 5,800 dot-jobs (.jobs) domains have been added to the Jobs Universe to create employment services for returning veterans ( and their families. The domains use the Military Occupational Classification (MOC) to assist military personnel in transitioning from active duty to employment opportunities in the civilian workforce. Transitioning military personnel can enter their MOC plus .jobs into their browser to locate civilian occupations requiring the same or similar skills as their previous military job. Tom Embrescia, chairman & CEO Employ Media, said: “This new effort to assist our veterans and their families is further demonstration of the value and benefit of the .jobs platform. It is free for both the employer and the job seeker and it is organized to fit the way people use the Internet to search for jobs and the way companies go about attracting specific skills and experience with no artificial barriers in between.”
