Upping Our Game to Hire Veterans and Their Families

More than 3,600 veterans have started new careers at AT&T so far this year.  And with veterans’ skills proving to be a good fit for the company’s needs, AT&T is doubling its hiring goal for veterans and their family members to 10,000 over the next five years, consistent with its commitment to equal employment opportunities.

About 55 percent of the veterans hired by AT&T this year made their transition to the private sector as technicians. Project Velocity IP, the company’s investment plan to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks, is driving technician hiring needs.

Read how more veterans are finding career opportunities at AT&T in the related news release or learn why veterans make great hires in the consumer blog post authored by Executive Director of Government Solutions, Carl Tegen.

Join AT&T's Chris Norton, "The Military Guy", at 3:00 p.m. ET, Friday, November 8 for a Twitter chat about how to transition successfully from the military to a civilian career. Follow @chrisnorton37 and #ATTVetChat.
