Accenture Unveils Online Job Search Tool for Vets; Jill Smart Comments

accenture_ExecutiveBizAccenture has launched an online tool that will provide veterans videos and articles intended to support them as they look for a job in the private sector.

The Accenture Military Career Coach features advice from company recruiters on resume development, job interviews, social media use, and career planning, Accenture said Tuesday.

Veterans will also learn how to use professional networking site LinkedIn to make connections, join groups, establish a professional identity online and follow companies in their job search.

“We designed this new tool to help veterans overcome challenges in their post-service job search, such as writing a resume that will attract corporate recruiters, building an online brand and learning interview skills,” said Jill Smart, Accenture chief human resources officer.

The firm recently decided to sign a veterans’ employer pledge with the Defense Department, in line with Military Appreciation Month.
