Check Out These 3 Exciting Companies That Just Became Hirepurpose Partners
Made for veterans by veterans, we at Hirepurpose know that transitioning from the military is a big step for service members and their families. That is why we are constantly forging new relationships with military-friendly employers who are looking to leverage the skills and leadership characteristics that our former soldier, sailors, airmen, Marines and military family members have to offer. This week we are highlighting three jobs with new Hirepurpose partners that have joined us in our mission of connecting great veterans with great companies.
Chubb, the 12th largest property and casualty insurer in the United States, is looking for a operations claim assistant to support its dynamic claims team in San, Ramon, California. Known for its commitment to its employees, Chubb is dedicated to recruiting and developing veterans and their family members. This job would be well-suited for those military veterans who served in administrative support specialties such as yeomen, administrative support specialist, or administrative clerk. If you are a veteran who is organized, conscientious, computer savvy, and who has great customer service skills this just might be the job you are looking for.
Veterans and their family members who are looking for jobs in this modern era know at least something about LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network that exists online today. In order to keep this network of 400 million users running smoothly and on the cutting edge, LinkedIn is currently looking for skilled IT professionals to fill a variety of roles in several locations across the country. Transitioning military men and women who know their way around software development and engineering, data analysis, information assurance, and cyber security should explore these openings. LinkedIn is excited to provide extensive resources to veterans, including a free, year-long upgrade to their premium job-seeker service, a dedicated veterans page, and access to free online training through Lynda.com.
PayPal, a global provider of online payment and merchant-processing solutions, is looking for a systems administrator to join its team. With a robust military recruiting program, PayPal values the mission-oriented mindset and exceptional skills that our service members carry with them throughout their lives. Those veterans who have at least five years of systems administration experience and a familiarity with Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) infrastructure are perfect for this role. Excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills are also necessary to be successful in the position.
Pence Mentions ‘Wolf Pack Of Rogue States’ Which May Or May Not Be Roaming Vegas Searching For Cocaine
Oh, honey, that Axis of Evil getup is so 2002. You need to get with the times and try on this little number called a Wolf Pack of Rogue States, designed by Mike Pence.
Yes, the Axis is Evil is out, and the Wolf Pack of Rogue States is so, so in.
The vice president mentioned the latest and greatest phrase to describe anti-American super-villain states during a conference in Washington on Wednesday, and clearly, they must all be running around the desert together looking for strippers and cocaine.

"Beyond our global competitors, the United States faces a wolf pack of rogue states. No shared ideology or objective unites our competitors and adversaries except this one: They seek to overturn the international order that the United States has upheld for more that half a century."
According to Pence, the Wolf Pack includes Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Notably absent: China and Russia, the two states that actually have a shot at seeking "to overturn the international order."
As Daniel Larison notes at The American Conservative, the Wolf Pack crowd's "ability to 'overturn the international order' is practically nil, and it isn't even certain that most of them desire that outcome. If North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua are our main adversaries, we are as secure as can be and we have very little to worry about."
Pence's wolf pack phrase follows another tried by National Security Advisor John Bolton back in November, when he labeled Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua as a "troika of tyranny" and a "triangle of terror," which make for interesting death metal band names, but seem kind of lame in comparison to the infamous 2002 "Axis of Evil" phrase from David Frum.
But perhaps they can consult with Stitch Jones, the Ayatollah of Rock-and-rolla, for some better branding.
