New England Technology Leaders and Monster Launch New England Tech Vets, Connecting Veterans with Local Employers

Today, at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts High Technology Council presented by Boston Scientific Corporation, Monster announced the launch of NewEnglandTechVets.org, an online community to connect the military service members and veterans with jobs in New England and across the United States.

New England Tech Vets is a 3-part community-based collaboration of the Massachusetts High Technology Council, Monster and Military.com, with the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program as clinical advisor. New England Tech Vets is designed to connect post-9/11 veterans with employers and jobs and support efforts to heal the “invisible wounds” of war as veterans re-enter the civilian workforce.

New England Tech Vets is spearheaded by the Massachusetts High Technology Council, whose CEO membership and mission focuses on helping to make Massachusetts and New England the world's most attractive place in which to live and work, and in which to create, operate, and grow high-technology businesses. Relying on the Council’s vast network, it has rallied the collective efforts of New England businesses, non-profits, government leaders, and others to support veteran employment and drive economic development through the attraction of quality veteran candidates.

“New England Tech Vets enables employers to hire top talent and veterans to find great jobs at home here in New England,” said Pete Nicholas, Co-founder and Chairman of Boston Scientific and Chairman of the Massachusetts High Tech Council. “The program is well-organized and I believe it will make an immediate and positive impact on deserving individuals, families and the region.”

“With so many veterans transitioning from military to civilian life, America needs innovative thinking and actions to help ensure those who have served on our behalf can find meaningful employment here at home,” said Congresswoman Niki Tsongas of 3rd Congressional District of Massachusetts. “I appreciate the efforts being taken by organizations such as the Massachusetts High Technology Council as they work to build NewEnglandTechVets.org. In partnership with other remarkable organizations like the Home Base Program, which is making such a difference in the lives of so many veterans, efforts like these continue to build on Massachusetts’ outstanding record of supporting veterans and the Commonwealth’s reputation as a hub of innovation.”

“As our military reshapes and retools over the next several years, more than one million highly trained and dedicated service members will leave the military for jobs in the private sector," said Senator William “Mo” Cowan, COO of ML Strategies. "Transitioning service members bring critical skills to the workplace including IT capabilities, network security, project management, materials management, leadership, problem solving and more."

New England Tech Vets is part of a strong and growing network of interconnected regional and national veteran career sites called the TechVets Network. Massachusetts High Technology Council is the third organization to join this national initiative. This network enables veterans to post their resume a single time for visibility by thousands of employers across the TechVets Network, Monster and Military.com websites. Participating employers also benefit from being part of the network. When an employer posts a job on New England Tech Vets it is automatically posted on the Networks’ national site, USTechVets.org, for veterans nationwide to see. This “post once, view by many” strategy is only possible through this one-of-a-kind veteran career network.

“Monster is excited to add New England Tech Vets to the growing TechVets network of veteran career sites,” said Steve Cooker, Executive Vice President of Monster Worldwide. “Through this network, both veterans and employers will be able to connect easier and faster than ever before. We are proud of Monster’s role in bringing this innovative new technology to New England.”

This unique, community-based collaboration was designed to support post-9/11 veterans as they re-enter in the civilian workforce by effectively and efficiently connecting them with employers throughout New England and with services to heal the invisible wounds of war.

“Home Base is pleased to act as clinical advisor to New England Tech Vets. We know that as our post 9/11 veterans transition to jobs following their military service, they may experience signs of post traumatic stress, effects from a mild traumatic brain injury, anxiety, stress or other invisible wounds of war. Home Base is here for both veterans and employers in New England,” said Brigadier General (ret.) Jack Hammond, Executive Director of the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program.

New England Tech Vets provides veterans access to thousands of quality jobs with New England employers. It also gives employers access to nearly one million resumes in the Networks’ Veteran Resume Database. This is the largest collection of veteran resumes available anywhere. New England Tech Vets seeks to facilitate veterans' transition to civilian careers, reduce veteran unemployment and provide America’s veteran workforce access to jobs in New England and beyond.

New England Tech Vets, powered by Monster, the global leader in successfully connecting job opportunities and people, features tools and resources for employers and for transitioning military personnel, veterans and their family members. Tools for veterans include a military skills translator to match each veteran’s skills, training and collateral duties to civilian jobs; a searchable database of jobs in the technology sector; and educational resources to help veterans develop skills to thrive in a private sector career. USTechVets.org member companies will receive free access to Monster’s database of more than 950,000 veteran resumes, powered by Monster’s award winning 6Sense semantic search technology. Employers also can automatically or directly post their jobs to the site, which veterans can search.
