Company Summary

Our military represents top talent pool in US (<25% of 18-24 year olds meet recruiting standards), but few make smart career choices post-service. Our technology enables job seekers to make smarter decisions about where to live, what to study, & where to work. Already generating strong revenue through our subscription service, employers use Hirepurpose to build content rich profiles that both educate job seekers and generate qualified applicants.
