Monster, Massachusetts High Technology Council, and Home Base–a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program–Launch New Veteran-Hiring Partnership
Monster Worldwide is proud to announce a partnership with Massachusetts High Technology Council (MHTC) and Home Base in conjunction with the Red Sox Foundation to educate employers on the value of veteran hiring, as well as provide resources and expertise for transitioning Military as they begin their civilian careers.
Monster is a leader in providing veteran hiring and recruitment tools and solutions, and its online defense news publication, Military.com, is the largest online publisher of military and veteran-related news, advice, and resources. With Monster becoming the official job board of the Boston Red Sox in April, this partnership brings together Monster’s veteran hiring expertise and the Red Sox Foundation’s philanthropic efforts through Home Base to create opportunities for employers and job seekers to learn more about veteran hiring.

Working directly with MHTC’s Tech Vets initiative allows Monster to fulfill its mission of connecting people with jobs by offering some of the top employers in Massachusetts access to a valuable talent pool—transitioning Military and their families.
“In today’s market, where sourcing candidates with the right skills is essential to finding the right fit, it’s natural for us to partner with MHTC to bring the area’s technology leaders together with a highly motivated talent pool ready to advance their skills and careers,” says Scott Gutz, CEO of Monster Worldwide. “As the CEO of Monster, a longtime MHTC board member, and a lifelong fan of the Red Sox, it is a privilege to launch this partnership.”
“Originally launched in 2014, the Mass High Tech Council is honored to bring back a revised Tech Vets initiative in 2022 as an additional talent strategy feature for our members,” said MHTC president Chris Anderson.
A kickoff event will take place at Fenway Park later this year, and the partnership will focus on two critical aspects of veteran hiring and feature events catered to employers and candidates:
- Training and credentialing of employers: Introduce area employers to the value of veteran hiring, best practices in recruiting and onboarding veterans and transitioning Military, and how to create a military-friendly company culture.
- Veteran candidate education and job-search preparation: Explain skills translation, résumé prep, and adapting to civilian workplace culture.
