Bob Krause, President of the Veterans National Recovery Center (VNRC), of Des Moines, Iowa, today announced a new job seach service for veterans. The service is free to veterans, and is supported through arrangements with the hiring companies. Krause said, "We are very excited to have established PutVetsToWork.com and to have entered into an agreement with our first corporation for hiring veterans. I urge people to go to our web site at www.putvetstowork.com to see more details about our proposal."The service is free to veterans, and is supported through arrangements with the hiring companies.
VNRC owns the website and conducts the outreach to veterans desiring a job. VNRC is a private, non-profit corporation organized under Section 501 (c) (3), United States Code, as a charitable organization. It has received its IRS letter of approval and has been assigned EIN:27-3714537. Donations to support the Jobs project may be made to the VNRC on the VNRC web site at www.vnrc.us. Paypal is accepted and also major credit cards. Funds from charitable contributions specified for the jobs project will go to web site development and also to outreach to veterans and to counseling.
WHO IS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH VNRC?
The VNRC strives to maintain its focus on charity, and has thus entered into a contract with a private firm, VPA LLC to manage the site and perform profit making services. VPA LLC, will seek out employers, validate the credentials of the veterans being hired, assist in the preparation of tax credit paperwork, and will receive a fee from the hiring corporations when the veteran is hired. No fee for services will be charged to the veteran or to the government.
Dividing the non-profit aspects of the operation from the fee-based operation helps VNRC focus on its private non-profit charitable mission and reach out to veterans without concern for the profitability or tax consequences of the action. We will be able to accept contributions and take advantage of public service messaging opportunities that are so necessary to make the entire operation work.
At the same time the arrangement allows the fee-based corporation to do what for-profit, private sector entities do best, and that is to keep a tight view on the bottom line. As the operator linking resumes to available jobs, VPA LLC can operate in the black without pressures from the non-profit board to deliver more services than might be feasible. It will also allow the private, for-profit firm to fully develop its own expertise in headhunting in areas that might not involve the core VNRC mission.
I HEAR THAT THERE IS A NEW TAX CREDIT FOR HIRING VETERANS. WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The new federal tax credit for hiring veterans is a huge plus,and makes the jobs project feasible, said Krause. The VOW to Hire Heros Act of 2011, enacted Nov, 21, 2011, provides an expanded Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) to businesses that hire eligible unemployed veterans.
However, there is some pre-screening that is required by the federal government in order for employers to take advantage of the credit. We will work with the both the veteran and the prospective employer to insure that the credit is available and applied for properly.
