Description of our Services

The Company is an online recruiting marketplace for service members and veterans who are currently serving in the United States military or who have transitioned from active duty service in the United States military within the last thirty-six (36) months. Our Services allow such individuals seeking employment opportunities (each, a “Job Seeker”) to connect with companies or organizations who subscribe to our Services and are seeking to recruit such individuals (each, an “Employer”). We serve as intermediary between Job Seekers and Employers. The Company is not involved in any contract of employment and is not bound by any contractual agreement arising between Job Seekers and Employers, whether or not the Company receives some form of remuneration in connection with the transaction.

EMPLOYERS: Upon registering as an Employer, You will be assigned a Company employee who will be responsible for the day-to-day management of your Employer account (“Account Manager”). The Account Manager will work with You to capture your unique training and/or employment program (your “Employer Program”) to be listed on our Website (the aggregate pool of Employer Programs of all Employers is hereinafter referred to as, the “Marketplace”). Employers will be able to view certain profiles of Job Seekers who are admitted into the Marketplace and who are interested in your Employer Program and initiate contact with You as described herein.  If a Job Seeker is interested in connecting with You, You will be able to connect with such Job Seeker through the use of our Services by accepting a request to connect sent by such Job Seeker through the Services (each, a “Connection Request”) or through your Account Manager. Once You have received a Connection Request, You may view the profile of the Job Seeker submitting such request and You may, in your sole discretion, accept or reject the Connection Request; provided, however, that You must accept or reject a Connection Request within three (3) business days of your receipt of the same. If You accept the Connection Request, You may then connect with the Job Seeker who sent such Connection Request outside of the Marketplace in accordance with these Terms of Use. If You do not accept the Connection Request within the time allotted above, the Connection Request will expire and You will no longer be able to view the profile of the Job Seeker submitting such request to You or to connect with such Job Seeker. Your interaction with a Job Seeker may result in an offer for employment from You (“Job Offer”); provided, however, that any Job Seeker may, in its sole discretion, decline any invitation to connect in your response to a Connection Request from such Job Seeker, or accept or reject any Job Offer.

JOB SEEKERS: Upon registering as a Job Seeker, You may receive an invitation to be admitted into the Marketplace and view the various Employer Programs included therein. If You are admitted into the Marketplace, your profile and Job Seeker Content (as defined below) will be visible and accessible by certain Employers to whom you send a Connection Request. If you are interested in connecting or interviewing with an Employer, You may send a Connection Request to such Employer. The Company will review such Connection Request to ensure that You meet the requirements with respect to the particular Employer Program that is the subject of the Connection Request, and if such requirements are met, the Company shall forward the Connection Request to such Employer. Upon receipt by Employer of such Connection Request, such Employer shall have access to and visibility of your profile and Job Seeker Content. The Employer may, in its sole discretion, accept or reject a Connection Request; provided, however, that such Employer must accept a Connection Request within three (3) business days of its receipt of the same.  If the Employer does not accept Your Connection Request within the time allotted above, the Connection Request will expire and the Employer will no longer be able to view your profile or to connect with You. If the Employer accepts your Connection Request, You may then connect with the Employer outside of the Marketplace in accordance with these Terms of Use. Your interaction with an Employer may result in the Employer extending an offer for employment to You (“Job Offer”); provided, however, that You may, in your sole discretion, accept or reject a Job Offer or decline any invitation to connect sent by an Employer in response to your Connection Request.

Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver

WITH RESPECT TO ALL PERSONS AND ENTITIES, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY HAVE OBTAINED OR USED THE WEBSITE OR SERVICES FOR PERSONAL, COMMERCIAL OR OTHER PURPOSES, ALL SUCH PERSONS AND ENTITIES AGREE THAT TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
