Veteran-Owned Businesses Listed
Part of VA’s mission is to assist veterans to gain employment. Monster, in partnership with VA’s Center for Veterans Enterprise, provides veteran-owned small businesses the opportunity to post job openings for veterans, including service-disabled veterans, at a large price discount. Monster will post the job openings for 60 days, twice as long as for other employers.
“This government-corporate partnership represents the best kind of effort to help those who gave up time in their lives to serve their country and return to an economic community that may not recognize their skills,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. James B. Peake. “The program should make it easier for employers to find qualified job candidates as well as veteran suppliers and service contractors.”
To participate in Monster job listings, veteran business owners must be listed in VA’s online Vendor Information Pages (VIP) maintained by the Department’s Center for Veterans Enterprise at http://www.VetBiz.gov.
In addition to helping veteran owners get business from other companies and prospective veteran employees find jobs, VA’s VIP pages will give Monster a source for purchasing services itself and VA will refer appropriate, listed suppliers to Monster.
The VA-Monster agreement is initially for two years and provides for extensions.
