Marshall County Working to Attract Military Veterans

Marshall County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) is pleased to announce the launch of a new website https://www.wewantvets.com aimed at attracting military veterans to the county. The new job portal connects vets to area jobs that match their skill sets. The portal allows veterans to search available jobs by military occupation classification (MOC).

The site will allow veterans to search by MOC or to review all jobs posted for the area. Veterans will also be able to post a resume for potential employers. Employers will be able to review the resumes and post job openings as they become available.

Along with employment opportunities the site features information about the Quality of Life available in the county. There are links to communities, veteran benefits, healthcare, K-12 schools, and secondary education and training.

“Marshall County industry and businesses are consistently looking for well trained quality team members to grow,” said Kevin Overmyer, President of the Marshall County Commissioners. “This effort will market these opportunities to veterans as they look for a place of employment in the civilian workforce. Combined with the work we are putting into improving the quality of life and housing in the county, we feel strongly that we can attract the type of talent local industry is looking to hire.”

The production of the site is the result of a partnership between Marshall County and the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation and was developed by Big Idea Company of Mishawaka. Area vets or businesses interested in posting a resume or job opportunity are encouraged to contact Greg Hildebrand, MCEDC Project Manager, at greg@marshallcountyedc.org or call 574-935-8499.
