Google Creates Job Search Engine For U.S. Military Veterans

Google has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide a customized job search engine for returning military veterans on the National Resource Directory (NRD) website. Starting today, veterans can use the site to search over 500,000 job openings nationwide.

The site uses Google’s custom search engine technology, looking for Schema.org’s JobPosting markup across job listing sites to identify jobs committed to veterans. Employers only have to add the JobPosting markup to their site to be crawled and listed in the NRD. Supporting organizations can also add the search box widget to their websites.

Google’s announcement of the partnership cites President Obama’s address this morning announcing new initiatives to find work for returning veterans.

According to the White House, over 850,000 U.S. veterans were jobless as of last month, and the unemployment rate for post-9/11 veterans was 12.1%. The government projects that over one million more people will leave military service in the next five years.

The White House has made veterans’ initiatives, including the Google-powered National Resource Directory, available at whitehouse.gov/vets.
