Google for Veterans with Resume Builder, Job Search Announced

Search engine giant Google has launched a new initiative to help war veterans connect online and assist them in finding a job.

The company has launched a new website called Google for Veterans, which allows veterans and their families to connect to the web.

In a post on Google Plus, David Drummond, Google's chief legal officer said that in honour of Veteran's Day, the company has launched a new YouTube channel, a website for the vets and their families and a resume builder.

"There are almost 22 million military veterans in the United States today and millions more around the world. My father was a Tuskegee Airman and a veteran of WWII and Vietnam, so it's important to me that Google supports veterans; I'm proud of the work we're doing on this front," Drummond said.

The website allows veterans to upload photos of their time in service, upload and access military documents securely, create a map of their military posting and upload and share videos. Veterans will also be able to create a resume online using Google Docs, make a website for their business and track their investments as well.
