RecruitMilitary LLC, Connects Employers with Job Seekers who have Military Backgrounds
RecruitMilitary, LLC, connects employers with job seekers who have military backgrounds. The company works with The Sierra Group and The Sierra Group Foundation to help employers hire veterans with disabilities. Through this three-way partnership, a typical employer that has a job opening can gain access to a carefully selected veteran who has a disability and is highly qualified for the job—or a small group of such veterans—along with information regarding accommodations and employment incentives for hiring veterans with disabilities.
RecruitMilitary's connectivity tools include outsourced professional recruiting, RecruitMilitary Career Fairs for veterans and others with military backgrounds, and online hiring products. The company serves veterans who already have civilian work experience, men and women or are transitioning from active duty to civilian life, members of the National Guard and reserves, and military spouses. All of RecruitMilitary's hiring services are free to the job seekers. RecruitMilitary is based in Cincinnati and was founded in 1998 by Drew Myers, formerly a Captain in the Marine Corps. All of the company's owners, officers, account executives, and recruiters are either veterans or active or former reservists.
The Sierra Group and the Sierra Group's Workplace Foundation haveworked jointly to sponsor, create and maintain an employer focused website employmentincentives.com. This site provides a one stop means for an employer to gain ready access to a vast array of information and forms to use when applying for the myriad of hiring incentives that exist when a business employs or retains a person with a disability. Designed to simplify access to such incentives employmentIncentives.com has both Federal and State - Pennsylvania forms available. Additional states will be added in the future so be sure to sign up for the Newsletter or to request an Employment Incentives Workshop at your location.
