MarketSource Partners with Hirepurpose to Offer Retail Jobs to Veterans, Spousesby Ann Bailey
Alpharetta-based MarketSource, Inc., an outsourced-labor leader, begins a new partnership offering flexible and portable job opportunities for veterans and spouses of military personnel.
The program merges MarketSource, a national provider of full-time and part-time jobs in retail sales positions with Hirepurpose, LLC, a military talent acquisition firm, and their national job-search bank built for transitioning service members, veterans and military spouses.
Bearing an unemployment rate significantly higher than civilian counterparts, Veterans from all eras and areas of service will now have an opportunity to grow and develop with a growing, stable organization. Their spouses, who also have historically had a difficult time maintaining positions with companies due to frequent moves, will be served as well.
MarketSource President Rick Haviland said, “Our partnership with Hirepurpose will benefit candidates who are transitioning from the military, and are looking for employment opportunities. Because MarketSource has a national reach, we can offer the flexibility and opportunity for military family members to carry on employment regardless of where their spouse is stationed.”
Haviland added, “A great thing about Hirepurpose is their nationwide job services footprint. This feature goes step-in-step with our nationally targeted Veterans hiring program – everyone benefits.”
In its first week of service, MarketSource’s dedicated Hirepurpose jobs-available page listed more than a thousand jobs open to Veterans. See the jobs page here.
MarketSource recently implemented a comprehensive program to
- Recruit veterans, reservists and military spouses to MarketSource
- Equip veterans with the skills needed to transition to the civilian workforce.
As part of the Veterans and Military Spouse strategy, the company partners with nonprofits and government agencies to support veterans’ transition and military spouse employment, and has a work force that prior service members and their families report they are honored to be a part of.
- The Atlanta Journal Constitution recognized MarketSource, Inc. as a Top Workplace 2015.
