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. Reducing time to hire for employers is critical to business success. Directly hiring veterans affects productivity, revenue, and morale. Veterans ASCEND is a web-based service changing the way veterans and employers connect. We make the human connection through a skills translation program that uses unique data sets to translate military skill codes into transferable skills employers are looking for. Our user-friendly program eliminates risks and facilitates the connection between the veteran and the employer using a proprietary algorithm. Here’s how our program works:

Veterans: Create a FREE skills profile based on their military experience, occupation, education & training, licenses, and certifications. Then, they indicate their desired work location, availability, and salary requirements. 

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. Then, you can review an unlimited number of veteran profiles. Once you’ve viewed the veteran’s profile, you unlock the contact information and reach out to them with the confidence they have the skills you are looking for. We connect you with qualifed candidates so interviews can happen quickly.

How We Got Here

Veterans ASCEND was created by a veteran who is also a certified HR professional. Taking from 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) Employers across the country can have a hard time connecting with veterans even if they are close to a military installation. 3) Employers may not understand a military resume and how a veteran’s military experience translates to the skills they need for their company. Lastly, 4) Factor in the limited time HR departments have to review resumes, and veterans can be quickly overlooked for positions where they can use their skills to help a business succeed. The Veterans ASCEND model answers the call, reverses the hiring process and creates success for you and for our veterans.
