BOSTON, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today announced that the company is seeking applicants to fill 60 jobs across Massachusetts. The positions will be primarily focused on retail and technician positions and are a result of AT&T's continued investment in the Bay State.
In 2013, AT&T hired nearly 180 Massachusetts residents to meet continued growth of wireless and broadband services in the state, and the company has hired nearly 100 employees since January of this year.
As a part of its hiring drive in Massachusetts and across the country, AT&T is looking to hire 10,000 military veterans and their families in the next five years. The company has established a Military Talent Attraction team, which focuses on promoting AT&T's career opportunities to veterans and educating managers across AT&T on the benefits of hiring military veterans.
"AT&T continues to expand our customer base in Massachusetts and invest in our network to ensure we are providing the high level of service customers have come to expect of the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network," said Patricia Jacobs, President, AT&T New England. "As part our commitment to this level of customer service and to support our growth in Massachusetts, we are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome 60 new Massachusetts employees to the AT&T family."
AT&T invested more than $575 million in its best-in-class wireless and wired networks in Massachusetts between 2011 and 2013. Advancing its Project Velocity IP (VIP), an investment plan to expand and enhance its wireless and wired IP broadband networks, AT&T in 2013 made more than 400 network upgrades in Massachusetts, including new cell sites, addition of wireless and wired network capacity, and new broadband network connections.
AT&T jobs are among the best in the world and full- and part-time positions include competitive wages and benefits. AT&T currently employs more than 1,100 employees throughout Massachusetts and consistently hires new talent.
Hiring our nation's heroes is a priority for the company. More than 3,600 veterans already started new careers at AT&T across the country in 2013. 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.
