VA teams with jobs Web site

The Veterans Affairs Department has struck a deal with a job-search Web site to help disabled veterans find employment.

The VA is working with Monster Government Solutions, a division of Monster Worldwide, which runs the Monster.com site for employers and job seekers.

Under the agreement, Monster and VA’s Center for Veterans Enterprise lets veteran-owned small businesses post job openings for veterans, including service-disabled veterans, at a discounted rate. The job openings will be posted for 60 days, twice as long as for other employers.

“The program should make it easier for employers to find qualified job candidates as well as veteran suppliers and service contractors,” said Veterans Affairs Secretary James Peake.

To participate in program, veteran business owners must be listed in VA’s online Vendor Information Pages maintained by the Department’s Center for Veterans Enterprise at www.VetBiz.gov.

Those pages will give Monster a source for purchasing services itself and VA will refer appropriate, listed suppliers to Monster.

The agreement is for two years with extension options.
