By adding the city and other factors such as geographic distance, the RecruitMilitary job board produces listings that translate the applicant’s military job skills to the civilian job market.The collaboration with Google is only a few months old, but RecruitMilitary said the enhanced search function has already had an impact.RecruitMilitary reported that applications by veterans on the website went up by 13%. The company said there has been a 50% increase in the number of jobs that come up in a search.Chris York, a client partner at RecruitMilitary said the job board is now being used by 1.4 million users.“Because of that collaboration with Google, the results returned are so much more enhanced as far as very meaningful results for that job seeker,” York said.RecruitMilitary is holding a job fair on November 29 in San Diego at the Scottish Rite Event Center. Nearly 60 regional employers will be represented. Posted: November 28, 2018 Updated: 7:47 PMlast_img
