Microsoft to Unveil Military Hiring Push

This is the result of a year of work by Scott Pitasky and others on the HR/recruiting team.

Currently in soft launch, the site will include a decoder to translate military skills into actual jobs (a long-standing challenge). It will also feature Friday afternoon chats with veterans and others who can help people with military-to-civilian transition questions, a list of upcoming events, and more.

  1. Great stuff! We have a Military Employer Consortium formed and the first meeting was hosted by GE and CareerXroads. Take a look at the group on Linkedin. We’re uniting to encourage more companies, DOL, DOD, SHRM, and hopefully….ERE, to get involved!

  2. This is outstanding to hear after new unemployment claims by newly discharged veterans doubled this week. Congrats on being a leader in the space. Let us know how we can help.
