The government is partnering with Google and LinkedIn to help veterans find jobs online.

Job postings on LinkedIn that could be filled by veterans will be so tagged. These tagged job postings will be accessible to the White House’s newly launched Veteran’s Job Bank and across veterans-oriented federal websites.

Google has been working with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide a customized job search engine for the National Resource Directory (nationalresourcedirectory.gov) to search more than 500,000 job openings from employers around the country.

This custom search engine crawls the web, looking for JobPosting markup from schema.org on sites like simplyhired.com to identify veteran-friendly positions. Employers can tag job postings to NRD by adding the markups to their own web page.

The U.S. Department of Labor has launched mynextmove.org/vets, which offers tools to translate military skills and occupations into civilian jobs.

All the veterans initiatives are available online at whitehouse.gov/vets
