Small Businesses Get Free Service To Hire Veterans

Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce to offer online service
A week after people from around the country gathered to honor service members on Veterans Day, one Virginia-based chamber of commerce is taking steps to help those who have bravely served our country.
The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce and Corporate Gray have joined forces to announce that they would be giving more resources than ever in order to help small businesses hire veterans as they transition into civilian life. The chamber has set up a website where small businesses can list job openings, allow veterans to upload their resumes and take advantage of a search feature.
"The chamber represents more than 250 employers, and this free service makes it easier for small companies to be 'military friendly' because there is no cost to post their job opportunities on this military-niche employment site," Corporate Gray, a military publication publisher, said in a statement. "The chamber discounts are also available to chamber members that want to search for resumes of military veterans."
Other chambers of commerce have been making news for small business in recent days. The Chamber of Commerce of St. Joseph County in Indiana announced that it would be taking nominations for the 2011 ATHENA Award, which awards entrepreneurs who provide excellent service to the community.
