Finding a job after their military service affects nearly 200,000 veterans every year, and only one in four veterans have a job lined up after leaving the armed forces, according to the Pew Research Center.  

Navy veteran Robyn J. Grable knows this reality all too well which guided her to founding Veterans ASCEND, an AI-powered talent sourcing platform.  

The company’s Career AI Talent Equalizer (CATE) uses proprietary algorithms to translate a candidate’s experience into skills and then match those skills to the employer’s needs, bringing together candidates and job openings that belong together. This process removes the need for a traditional resume which is a major barrier for many entering the job market or shifting careers.
