Major Veterans' Job Board Shifts U.S. Operations
We-Hire-Heroes.com announces international expansion and new domain name; celebrates with 80% job listing discount to employers
Now in its 6th year of active operations, the company has firmly established itself as a prime player in the veteran transition space. Their creative approach and tireless work ethic has even caught the attention of recruiters and employment specialists in other countries.
"A lot of people think online job boards are in the process of going extinct", says Managing Director Lance T. Walker. "And some of the big, impersonal mega-sites actually might. But a lot of niche sites like ours are doing quite well, mostly because we've known from the beginning that just listing millions of available jobs is only a starting point.
To be successful in the long term, a job board has to first target a specific niche, then work closely with candidates, employers, and recruiters to build relationships that survive long after the initial hiring process is completed."
WHH was named "best veterans' job site on the Internet" in 2014. Building on that success, they recently decided to begin the process of establishing operations in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. It's an ambitious plan, but this team has never been afraid to think big.
"Job boards are still the first place candidates turn to when seeking a new position or career change", said Mr. Walker. The trick is knowing how to make the information you find useful in your search. We coach veterans and spouses on little known ways to combine social media, Internet research, and offline tactics to get around the electronic weeding-out process. Finding and landing the right job is about a whole lot more than just filling out application forms.
The new WeHireHeroes.US site is much more than a collection of job listings. It is a full service Career Resource Center that connects employers who want to hire veterans with the candidates and spouses that are looking for them."
The old site is being phased out, but can still be viewed at http://we-hire-
The U.S. operations have been moved to the new site, http://wehireheroesusa.com .
