Civiside.com Helps Veterans Find Their Next Job

November 11, 2010  |  Written by:  | Posted in: Blog, News

As Canadians observe Remembrance Week, a new initiative to help veterans find employment in the civilian workforce has been gaining popularity among Southern Ontario’s business leaders.

On November 11th, 2010, Civiside.com will be launching their new “Guaranteed Interview Program” website. The new site was generously donated by Arrowsmith Corporation, a local web design firm based in Kitchener. Arrowsmith’s president, Erik Fletcher, is a passionate supporter of the Guaranteed Interview Program, encouraging other companies to participate: “Guaranteeing an interview to a veteran is not only the right thing to do, it also makes good business sense. Veterans have great skills sets that are transferrable to the civilian workforce, and this program is an excellent way to help them connect with employers seeking quality candidates.”

With the new website in place, Civiside expects to attract more businesses across Ontario and, eventually, North America. “We have already seen an incredible response to the new site,” says Ken Seville, founder of Civiside.com. “We are now in a great position to start signing up more employers who want to make a difference in their community. In fact, we’ve already partnered with a number of high-profile companies including Pioneer Petroleums and PV Labs.”

Interested employers can sign up for the program by visiting civiside.com, agreeing to grant at least one qualified veteran an interview per job posting, and downloading the program logo to be placed on their career site, marketing collateral, job postings and wherever they attract talent.
