JobPath’s story began in 2006 when the company’s founders, including Chief Executive Officer Jack Fanous, Chief Financial Officer Alex Manis, and Chief Operations Officer James Fanous created the nonprofit organization GI Go Fund. The charity was founded in honor of their close childhood friend, Lt. Seth Dvorin of the U.S. Army, who was killed in Iraq in 2004. The organization sought to honor his sacrifice for his country by helping his fellow military personnel with various services when they come home so they can provide for themselves and their loved ones. The group assisted military veterans with finding a career, developing their resumes, and connecting them with housing and benefits to help get them back on their feet. Through their work, the group realized that military veteran had great skills and capabilities to offer the corporate world, but the employment space in this area had few options that could connect employers to the incredible untapped resource of the veteran job candidate.
With this in mind, they created JobPath, the first and most complete employment engine in the market designed for military veterans and their families. JobPath has provided to both candidates and corporations a platform that takes a holistic approach to veteran hiring. The platform has garnered widespread recognition for its work since its creation in 2013, having been recognized by the American Legion and several other organizations for the groundbreaking services we are offering. With tens of thousands of new users from across the country logging on every month and companies signing up every day, join the many that are discovering everything that our system has to offer.
Why choose JobPath?
For years, the formula for finding a job was revolved around endlessly navigating through the limited job openings listed on online boards and attending hiring fairs with little guidance or expectation of it resulting in getting hired. But with JobPath, veterans and their families will be given the chance to change that equation.
Veterans are able to search for the countless jobs available on our site. In addition, users are matched to job openings that meet their particular skillsets through our powerful Military Skills Translator, which includes translations and related jobs to thousands of Military Occupation Codes from all five branches. If the veteran wants to improve their skillset, they can take advantage of our hundreds of online training programs designed industry experts, as well as the ones made by companies themselves for certain openings that will give them the skills that they need for the position. Users can also develop their customized resume after filling out their profile which is compatible with most Applicant Tracking Systems used by companies when hiring. And with our mentorship interface, veterans and their families will be able to speak to others with experience in finding work who can talk them through their issues.
