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.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Friday that no U.S. troops will take part in enforcing the so-called safe zone in northern Syria and the United States "is continuing our deliberate withdrawal from northeastern Syria."
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan earlier on Friday said Turkey will set up a dozen observation posts across northeast Syria, insisting that a planned "safe zone" will extend much further than U.S. officials said was covered under a fragile ceasefire deal.
On Tuesday at the Association of the U.S. Army's annual conference, Army families had the opportunity to tell senior leaders exactly what was going on in their worlds — an opportunity that is, unfortunately, all too rare.
A new documentary series about Clint Lorance pits the infantry officer convicted of murder against his former soldiers
The fog of war, just kills, and war crimes are the focus of a new documentary series coming to STARZ. Titled Leavenworth, the five-part series profiles 1st Lt. Clint Lorance, the Army infantry officer who was convicted on murder charges for ordering his soldiers to fire on three unarmed Afghan men on a motorcycle, killing two and wounding the third, while deployed to the Zhari district in Kandahar province, on July 2, 2012.
A big stereotype surrounding U.S. service members and veterans is that they are defined only by their military service, from buying "Dysfunctional Veteran" t-shirts to playing hard-boiled, high-octane first-person shooters like Battlefield and Call of Duty (we honestly have no idea where anyone could get that impression).
But the folks at OSD (formerly called Operation Supply Drop), a non-profit veteran service organization that aims to help troops and vets connect with each other through free video games, service programs and other activities, recently found that most of the gamers they've served actually prefer less military-centric fare like sports games and fantasy RPGs.
CEYLANPINAR, Turkey (Reuters) - Shelling could be heard at the Syrian-Turkish border on Friday morning despite a five-day ceasefire agreed between Turkey and the United States, and Washington said the deal covered only a small part of the territory Ankara aims to seize.
Reuters journalists at the border heard machine-gun fire and shelling and saw smoke rising from the Syrian border battlefield city of Ras al Ain, although the sounds of fighting had subsided by mid-morning.
The truce, announced on Thursday by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence after talks in Ankara with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, sets out a five-day pause to let the Kurdish-led SDF militia withdraw from an area controlled by Turkish forces.
The SDF said air and artillery attacks continued to target its positions and civilian targets in Ral al Ain.
"Turkey is violating the ceasefire agreement by continuing to attack the town since last night," SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali tweeted.
The Kurdish-led administration in the area said Turkish truce violations in Ras al Ain had caused casualties, without giving details.
