Monster Worldwide (NYSE: MWW), the worldwide leader in successfully
connecting people to job opportunities, and Military.com, the nation's
largest military and veteran membership organization, hosted their
national Veterans Employment Summit on Wednesday, April 30th.
The event brought together human resources professionals, hiring
managers and veteran service organizations looking to enhance or begin a
veteran or military spouse hiring program. The conference differed from
other veteran employment programs in that it went beyond reinforcing the
notion that veteran hiring is important and put the right people in the
room together to focus more on proven recruitment and retention
Highlights of the program included keynote speaker Sal Giunta, the first
living Medal of Honor recipient since Vietnam and a session titled “The
Elephant in the Room” which was a frank and open discussion about the
perceptions and issues pertaining to veterans that can impede their
“Monster and Military.com are proud of our track record connecting
Veterans to employers in the private and public sectors, and were
pleased to sponsor a forum a that facilitates meaningful dialogue on the
challenges our Vets face in the job market,” said Steve Cooker,
Executive Vice President for Monster Worldwide and General Manager of
Monster Government Solutions, “The engagement with so many respected
human capital and government leaders who put words into action every
day around improving veteran employment was inspiring.”
The program also included a “View from Capitol Hill” including remarks
from Senator Joe Manchin.
“Those who have served this great country are some of the most
well-trained, disciplined, and dedicated individuals among us, and they
deserve simple, consolidated, and reliable ways to find good-paying
jobs. I am also grateful for all the companies and HR professionals who
attended this wonderful event to learn more about the best ways to
connect employers to job-seeking veterans. Like I've always said, if you
want to help a vet, hire a vet. And that was what this event was all
about,” said Senator Manchin.
Representative Jeff Denham said, “As our men and women return home, they
will be greeted with the opportunity of a new career. Our Veterans Jobs
Caucus remains focused on this goal, and I have been honored to work
with Senator Manchin and our partner companies who are committed to
finding solutions to veterans’ unemployment.”
And Representative Tim Walz, Co-Chair of the Congressional Veterans Jobs
Caucus and highest ranking enlisted soldier to ever serve in Congress
said, “It should be our goal as a grateful nation to ensure our brave
warriors have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream when they
get home; to provide for their families, contribute to their
communities, and find careers they can be proud of.”
Participants represented over 150 employers, across a spectrum of
industries and sizes with varying degrees of veteran recruitment
programs in place. In addition to perspectives shared from government
officials on the importance of veteran hiring, attendees heard from
recently transitioned veterans, and military spouses.
Monster and Military.com are actively engaged in helping employers hire

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
