TAOnline.com knows the job market is very competitive. We see the same monthly unemployment statistics you see. We know veterans and non-veterans are competing for similar jobs. We also know, according to a recent report, most companies would rather hire a veteran over a non-veteran.

But, employers cannot hire what they cannot see. And, in today's job market veteran job seekers should capitalize on every tool at their disposal to get noticed. That's one of the reasons TAOnline.com launched our Featured Hero program.

The Featured Hero service spotlights highly skilled veterans seeking employment. This unique enhancement is completely free to the TAOnline.com job seeker. The benefit to the jobseeker:

  • Tell their story beyond their resume
  • Puts a face with the name (picture is required, preferably in uniform)
  • Discuss their goals, experience, expertise, and how that combination will benefit employers using TAOnline.com
  • Minimum 30-day highlighted exposure as Featured Hero seen throughout Employer portion of TAOnline.com

Employers can view these Featured Hero profiles and resumes free of charge. "We're frequently perplexed by some of the candidates we see without a job," explains Debbie Glynn, TAOnline, Senior Account Executive. "The Featured Hero program is our way of saying thank you to these particularly special people," continues Glynn.

Does it work? One of our Featured Heroes has a new job. While all veterans are heroes, only a few will qualify as TAOnline.com Featured Heroes. If you believe you have the makings of a TAOnline.com Featured Hero, click here to apply. (Login required)
