Mayor de Blasio Announces Launch of First-in-the-Nation Veterans Employment Tool; VetConnectPro connects Veterans to City and private sector jobs, mentorship, and translates over 7,000 military occupations to civilian service titles

JobPaths is proud to launch VetConnectPro with New York City's Department of Veterans Services. The platform is the first of its kind in the country, connecting veterans living in NYC to City and private sector jobs, mentorship, and translates over 7,000 military occupations to civilian service titles.

A model for other cities and states, the site provides Veterans and their families access to a wide array of hiring features, including a proprietary military skills translator, a dashboard that provides job postings from city agencies as well as information on local, state, and federal benefits, civil service exams, and recommended online job training.

“It’s often challenging for a Veteran who has faithfully served our country to translate the highly specialized abilities and skills that they have learned in the military into the civilian sector when they leave,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “I’m proud that New York City is leading the way, making it easier than ever for Veterans to find employment, mentorship and resources with this first-in-the-nation tool.”

“We are very excited that the City of New York has chosen our technology as their preferred tool for Veteran hiring,” said Jack Fanous, CEO of JobPaths. “JobPaths was designed to serve as a technology solution for Veteran hiring, utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning to match employers to the most qualified candidates.”
