MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Google has unveiled a new search tool to help Army and Marine infantrymen find jobs as security guards, truck drivers, and professional hitmen, sources confirmed today.
In an announcement earlier this week, the Silicon Valley tech giant rolled out its job search tool in order to help military personnel transition to civilian life. One tool appears after a veteran types in "jobs for veterans" into the Google search box, allowing them to input their military occupational specialty and see jobs in their area that pertain to their skillset.
Infantrymen using the service will see a wide variety of jobs available in their area, which run the gamut from unarmed security guard to armed security guard. Some locations also show infantry-centric jobs such as school janitor and restaurant dishwasher — an example of Google's algorithm understanding that most infantry personnel clean their barracks or their weapons for about 98 percent of their enlistment.
In addition to the job search tool, Google also announced a grant for veterans to pursue a career in IT support and added the ability for civilians to falsely claim their business was veteran-owned.
