CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* is seeking to fill a mix of more than 150 mostly retail and technician jobs across the Tar Heel state, and we're joining with USO-NC to fill them with military veterans.
Our volunteers will be working with USO-NC to provide career counseling to troops transitioning out of the military. With the USO-NC, we'll help troops create resumes, conduct mock interviews, and prepare them for careers after their service work. The workshops will be held Nov. 17-18 at Fort Bragg, and Dec. 1-3 at Camp Lejeune.
We will alert troops of our current openings, and promote jobs on USO-NC's social media career channels.
"Military veterans have skills and experience AT&T values – such as discipline, leadership and teamwork," said Cristy Swink, vice president and general manager, AT&T Mid-Atlantic. "We're proud to support USO-NC and help troops transition to civilian life."
USO-NC is the lead organization charged with supporting the military in North Carolina. 11% of U.S. military active duty forces call North Carolina home. With 7 major military installations, North Carolina has the 4th largest demographic of active and reserve duty components in the country.
"Transitioning service members bring so many critical skills — training, leadership and professional work ethic— into the civilian communities. Many companies seek this quality of employee. The USO of North Carolina is helping them translate those skills so the private sector recruiters can see their value," said retired Army Lt. Col. John Falkenbury, president, USO of North Carolina, "We're grateful for AT&T's support in the delivery of vital transition assistance programs. Their commitment to seeking and hiring our transitioning military, and other veterans, is a model for others to follow."
We're recruiting veterans into career paths that are the right fit. We match their military experience, soft skills and career motivations with jobs with long-term growth opportunities. Military veterans can learn more about careers at AT&T here.
