Google starts VetNet employment resource center for veterans

updated 08:16 am EST, Thu November 29, 2012

Central location offers one million job postings, Google apps

Google has launched a central service to help veterans into civilian employment, that uses already built support tools. Dubbed VetNet, the site leverages Google+ and Google apps to provide resume-building assistance and help finding jobs to ex-military personel and their families, by moving all of the existing Google-connected tools for these purposes into a single hub.

Formed in partnership with the US Chamber of Commerce's Hiring Our Heroes program, the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, and Hire Heroes USA, VetNet offers resources for job searching, interviewing advice, and industry-specific mentoring. According to a Google blog post, three different tracks will be available for registered members, including an eight-week college-level course on the fundamentals of starting a business.

A registration with Google+ is required to take part in the project, due to its use of Google Hangouts, Calendar, and Google Docs, and will be able to search through over one million "veteran-preferred" job openings.
