Protuo(TM) Online Digital Portfolio Service is Free to U.S. Armed Forces Veterans

ATLANTA, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Protuo(TM)(http://www.protuo.com/), the new career portfolio management service that enables job seekers to create and automatically post online their own digital career portfolios, is free to all U.S. Armed Forces veterans. The fee is ordinarily $9.99 per month, after a $29.99 set-up charge. To receive a password enabling the free service, veterans can fax their discharge papers (Form DD 214) to Protuo (619-793-1043). In addition Protuo staff will help interested veterans create a professional online portfolio at no additional charge.

"Our soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen and women make great sacrifices for our country and it's the responsibility of us all to do whatever we can to make their re-entry into civilian life as successful as possible," said Keenan Hogg, Protuo's president and CEO.

According to VeteransToday.com, a Web site published by veterans for veterans, the unemployment rate for veterans between the ages of 18 and 24 is 18.7, nearly twice that of non-veterans. About 250,000 service people are discharged from the military each year.

Protuo's easy-to-use templates enable customers to quickly design, assemble and maintain digital portfolios to which they can upload photos, documents, video clips and other materials that illustrate their skills, qualifications and experience. The job-seeking process continues with a survey that matches their education, experience and career goals to existing job opportunities. Using a methodology similar to that of social networking sites such as eHarmony.com, the surveys are evaluated in real-time and results sent immediately to job seekers and employers.
