IndianaCareerConnect.com is a job search website run by the state where public and private employers can post openings on the site for free.

Beginning this week, new job listings will only be visible to military veterans for the first 24 hours.  Department of Workforce Development Spokeswoman Valerie Kroeger says the change is part of an effort to provide veterans with a boost in the job market.

“Some employers will say, you know, ‘I’m only posting my job for 72 hours, you  know, three days,’ and the thing is is that some people who are job searching, they’re not on there every day,” she says. “So this gives veterans a little bit of a head start.”

People who use the website only need to indicate they are a veteran in their user profile in order to take advantage of the service.
