OneWire Shares Insight on Financial Services Career Opportunities to Service Academy Graduates

Company Highlights How OneWire's Technology Helps Veterans Connect With Job Opportunities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 17, 2012) - OneWire®, where finance professionals get hired, today shared details of the presentation it delivered during a Joint Service Academy Networking Event, hosted by West Point. The event, held on May 16, 2012 at the Hudson Station Bar and Grill in New York City, provided the 40 veterans and graduates of the U.S. service academies in attendance with an overview of the current job market in financial services and showed how OneWire helps candidates connect with opportunities in the industry.

The Joint Service Academy Networking Event is a monthly gathering of service academy graduates in the New York City area, aimed at helping them find their next career opportunity. During these events, graduates and veterans hear from business leaders representing a wide variety of industries about the opportunities available to them and gain insight and advice to help them find employment in their desired field.

During OneWire's presentation, Mary Gay Townsend, founding member and senior managing director of OneWire's executive search arm, OneWire Managed Services, and Matt Cercone, executive vice president of Sales, shared their views on the current state of the job market and hiring trends in the financial services industry. They also discussed how OneWire's technology provides a specific advantage to job seekers with military backgrounds.

OneWire profiles are built with structured data, the same type of data employers use to search for candidates. With both candidates and employers speaking the same language, OneWire is able to make precise matches between the two parties, whether they're based on degree, specific armed services experience, or particular licenses and certifications.

"Many financial services organizations are proactively trying to increase the number of individuals with a military background in their ranks," commented Townsend. "Introducing these individuals to OneWire enables them to identify organizations whose needs match their qualifications and get their foot in the door."

"OneWire connects financial services firms with the right talent through our targeted talent community and precise matching technology," said Cercone. "Candidates on OneWire can showcase specific information about their background -- including military experience -- and career preferences, helping them to get in front of relevant employers. In presenting at the Joint Service Academy Networking Event, we were able to show how our unique solutions can help these individuals connect with financial services firms and find positions for which they are most qualified."
