“This is a very exciting program that we are announcing. Everyone can get behind hiring veterans and their family members. Those are easy words,” said Mike D’Angelo, AICC Vice President. “JobPath’s unique platform will ensure that there is a great fit between the veteran hired and the AICC member company doing the hiring.”


Launched in 2013, JobPath, the first employment engine in the market designed for military veterans and their families provides companies a platform that uses advanced technology to help employers understand and connect with the most qualified veteran candidates.


“We are very excited that AICC has chosen our technology as their preferred tool for veteran hiring,” said Jack Fanous, CEO of JobPath. “JobPath was designed to serve as a technology solution for veteran hiring, utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning to match employers to the most qualified candidates. With this powerful platform at their disposal, AICC will offer an incredible tool to help their members recruit the best veteran candidates for their open positions.”


JobPath features multiple tools to bring veterans and employers together, including a Job Board, Candidate Database, Candidate Matching, an automated matching tool that connects employers with candidates whose skills meet the company’s requirements, and a Military Skills Translator, allowing companies to fully understand what job a veteran held in the military and how their skills may apply to open positions at the company.The platform will link to certain AICC Packaging School courses so that candidates can get an understanding of the packaging industry, another step to ensuring a good match.
