About Us

We know time is important. The less time it takes a veteran to find a civilian career, the better it is for them, their families, and their community. The time savings employers receive by directly hiring veterans affects productivity, revenue, and morale. Veterans ASCEND is a web-based service changing the way employers find and hire great talent. We built a skills translation engine from scratch. Using unique data sets and a proprietary algorithm, our program searches the database of veterans’ profiles and matches the employer with the top candidates. Our user-friendly program decreases time to hire, improves retention and saves your company money. Here’s how our program works:

Veterans: Create a FREE skills profile based on their military experience, education & training, licenses, and certifications. Then, they indicate their desired work location, availability, and salary requirements. That’s it. No resume, no applying for jobs until an employer contacts them.

Employers: Create unlimited job profiles listing the required skills for your job vacancies. Our program matches your job profiles to the veteran’s skills profile with the highest percentage of match criteria based on skills, location and salary. Then, you review an unlimited number of veteran profiles. Once you’ve viewed the veteran profiles and decide who to contact for an interview, you need to unlock the contact information. That is what your subscription covers. 

How We Got Here

Veterans ASCEND was created by veterans for veterans. During our transition out of the military, and our subsequent work in the Human Resources field, we learned a few things: 1) Veterans can have a hard time translating their military experience into skills for the civilian sector hiring process. 2) Veterans spend countless hours on job boards submitting resumes and never receive feedback. 3) Employers across the country can have a hard time connecting with veterans even if they are close to a military installation. 4) Employers may not understand a military resume and how a veteran’s work history translates to the skills they need for their company. Lastly, 5) Factor in the limited time HR departments have to review resumes, and veterans can be quickly overlooked for positions they are qualified for. The Veterans ASCEND model answers the call, reverses the hiring process and creates success for you and for our veterans.
