How Many Veterans Are Hired Each Year That Qualified for WOTC? & Where to Post Jobs to Attract Applications from U.S. Veterans
According to Monster.com 90% of veterans say finding a veteran-friendly company is critical in their job search. And when you are using the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, you may also be eligible for a tax credit of up to $9,600. Monster.com has a Military Friendly Hiring Solution (Note, you can access through iRecruit when sponsoring a job on Monster).
How Does Resume Parsing Work?
iRecruit customers use resume parsing with their employment application(s). Resume parsing can help speed up the process of completing a long application form. The resume parser reads the information on the applicant’s resume file (Word, PDF, Pages, Text files etc), and matches the content with the available fields on the employment application.
