As an emerging platform, VetGigs is the online Talent Marketplace that connects professionals from the Veteran Community with employers seeking to hire them as skilled freelancers and employees. It also helps iron out the pain points that come with freelancing such as agreeing on the scope and payment terms, and ensuring talent receives their compensation in a fast, and timely manner. VetGigs can be a great tool for small business owners who want reliable freelance talent from the US Veteran Community. This is especially true as full-time employees become harder to afford
“Veterans face unique challenges when re-entering the workforce as many are only marketed low wage and low skill positions,” said Brett Currier, Founder & CEO of VetGigs.com. We empower veterans by supporting their transition and growth in corporate environments; and enabling their success in high income jobs across technology, consulting, and other professional services. We work with non-profits to develop and implement training and reskilling programs, so veterans have the tools necessary to excel, both professionally and personally. We also work with Non-Profits like Tech for Troops to help with their other needs such as providing free laptops to veterans in need so they can begin their journey in building marketable skills to achieve their long terms goals.
VetGigs connects veterans with businesses by partnering with employers across a variety of industries. By accessing their specialized network of employers, VetGigs only provides a list of pre-screened jobs based on the veterans’ requirements. This, therefore, saves them time, money, and resources sifting through irrelevant jobs across a variety of job boards. Less than 15% of jobs are secured through a job posting board. Veterans can rest assured knowing that VetGigs has relationships with all their employers, so every application and gig proposal is like getting a warm introduction to a recruiter. In many cases, recruiters reach out to talent directly inviting them to apply!
“We have worked hard to construct a network that ranges from startups to Fortune 500 corporations,” said Currier. “We’re on a mission to bridge the gap for veterans so they don’t have to waste time anymore learning about job positions – many times after they are filled. Spread the word on the launch of our platform so we can let our community know that there are amazing opportunities waiting for them!”
VetGigs is an entirely veteran owned and operated platform to connect U.S. Military Veterans with recruiters looking to hire them as technology and professional services contractors. Their mission is to help veterans achieve purpose in their civilian careers, financial well-being, and lifelong career growth opportunities. VetGigs offer employers a chance to process their entire contingent workforce staffing lifecycle on one platform while sourcing the highest quality Veteran talent. Many CHROs also use VetGigs to source incredible Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion employee talent from VetGigs due to the ability to sort by disadvantaged business statuses like Veteran Owned Business, Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Business, Minority Owned Business, and Women Owned Business.
