Our men (and women) in uniform would definitely be proud to know that the military is one of the most advanced in the world – not to mention boasting some of the deadliest weapons in their armory, but in this time of economic crisis, you never quite know when you might be out of a job. Well, fret not – Internet search giant Google has successfully developed a job search engine specifically for the US military, this coming about after teaming up with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
In a nutshell, veterans are able to make use of the website to look for more than 500,000 job openings around the country. I guess this is definitely a good thing, as it provides a nice, soft landing as I read somewhere that the average person in the US takes 40.5 weeks or so to land a new job at the moment from a jobless state. Bear in mind that the National Resource Directory lists organizations and not people, so registering is not a prerequisite to use the Veterans Job Bank.
I just wonder whether Google’s custom search engine technology can be applied elsewhere in other departments or industries. Just where do you think Google will figure in the future?
