Google announced this month a new website to encourage and help veterans to apply for jobs at the company. In the official blog post titled ‘The doors are open for veterans at Google’ there are more details about the kind of resources veterans can find including mentoring, virtual classes, a way to match their military skills with existing teams at Google, among others.

The intro video says it best:

Veterans Make Great Googlers

 

This builds on the efforts of Google’s existing group ‘Google Veterans Network’ (Website, G+ Page) but this site focuses squarely on the issue of recruiting top veteran talent to Google.

Supporting veterans is a noble and smart move for the company considering the kind of skills and behaviors it takes to succeed in a professional military.
