First-GIG LLC, a business that operates
two career placement services, is relocating
its headquarters from Madison, Wis., to
First-GIG operates 1stGig.com, which
focuses on jobs for college graduates, and
VetsBridge.com, which specializes in the
employment of returning veterans of the U.S.
After operating for more than three years
out of Madison, First-GIG is relocating to
Saratoga Springs, in part because of the thriving
IT industry in the Albany-Saratoga area,
officials said. The company plans to continue
its active role in the national marketplace.
First-GIG officials said the company has
developed proprietary algorithms for both
programs that make it easier for potential
employees and employers to find each other.
The service is available to students and veterans
at no charge.
