Apply for jobs via video

As you know, the team at VR is always looking for better ways to connect veterans & military spouses with our employer partners, and I am please to announce that VR One Way is finally here. What is VR One Way?

VR One Way is a powerful, secure, and easy to use video job application platform. You will see jobs posted from our partners, and if interested, you can apply via video. Recruiters will review your video interview, and determine if you are a match for the job. Your resume details your experience, but you are the person the company will ultimately hire, and VR One Way gives you an opportunity to stand out from the crowd. Here are some tips to ensure your video interview goes well.

  1. Use a modern web browser. Google Chrome is the preferred web browser. The latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer will work as well.
  2. Have latest version of Adobe Flash Player already installed on your computer. Visit adobe to get the latest version.
  3. Make sure all other web programs “besides the meeting room” are closed.
  4. Use Ethernet if possible. If using a wireless connection, disconnect all other devices from the internet.
  5. If you are using a mobile device, make sure you are connected to wireless internet and not 3G Cellular.
  6. Directly connect to a power source. Be aware that a work network might be slower. To test your connection speed, go to speedtest. The minimum upload is 2.0 mbps and the minimum download is 3.0 mbps.
  7. Disable your screensaver to prevent your computer from going to sleep during the interview.
  8. Make sure your interview location has adequate lighting. Avoid having strong lights or windows in your background to prevent silhouetting and make sure your face is clearly lit. Keep your environment quiet and free from distractions.
  9. If you are using a mobile device, prop it up so it doesn’t move during the interview.
  10. Look into the webcam and not at yourself to enhance that eye-to-eye interviewing experience.

Every week, we will post videos of open jobs with some of our partners on this page. You can review the job, and apply if interested.

 

Good Luck

Welcome to the Deployed 2 Employed blog

For several years now, I have been asked to start a blog that will focus on helping transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses who are looking for employment. To date, I have been reluctant to do so because there is no way I can commit to posting content on a daily or weekly basis given my workload, and because pen to paper is probably my weakest skill. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of having lunch with a good friend of mine from high school who served 18 years in the Marines before being made medically retired. His name is Ricky, and he made me realize that regardless of how often I add content, or how many people the content helps, it is a worthwhile effort if it helps just one veteran who may be in need of assistance finding meaningful employment after serving. I know that may sound a little bit corny, but as I thought on it for a few days, it actually rings true with me. I started Veteran Recruiting not because I saw an opportunity to make a ton of money (believe me), but because I saw a glaring need to help those of you who have sacrificed so much for me and my family. So, before I start blogging away aimlessly, I wanted to let you know what you can and can’t expect from me with the blog.

I Will

1. Focus purely on employment issues and topics for the military community
2. Write about employment opportunities with companies we come across, and will include contact information for the recruiter for the company where possible
3. Send event reminders
4. Keep you up to speed on services available to aide you in your job search
5. Post success stories from other veterans who have been hired

I Will Not

1. Discuss anything political (there are thousands of places for you to voice your discontent)
2. Be a resource for anything VA related (we do not have the knowledge, or the training to be such a resource)

So, if you are in need of employment advice, or want to provide assistance to your fellow veteran or military spouse, we encourage you to check in to see what is posted, and encourage you to add your two cents.

Thanks

Kevin O’Brien
Veteran Recruiting
