Verizon focuses on jobs for veterans, military spouses

by on
in Hiring,Human Resources

Verizon employs nearly 12,000 veterans—and it also has a program to put the spouses of active-duty military members to work. It helps military spouses find Verizon jobs at locations near where their husbands or wives are assigned.

The firm hires more than 500 veterans a year. Verizon President Al Torres has said veterans bring mission-driven ­attitudes, technical skills, leadership potential and lots of training to the telecommunications company.

The organization also has a Veteran Advisory Board to recognize, mentor and develop veterans who are em­ployees, and an emergency leave benefit that allows employees in the National Guard or Reserve to collect the difference between military pay and their full-time salaries, along with health care and other benefits for up to three years.

Hello Ray: I am asking to get hold of Joe Gaithers and have him contact me. I tried email but no luck. I have reached out to one of other member of the VABVZ but felt also to speak to Joe. I do not have number. This is important. I have been on the board since 1995 and now as an assoicate. I have represented Verizon and the VABVFZ at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial for a long time. I have had most of the time Mike NOa for mer chair of the board with me. Events for this UPCOING Meorial Day requires attention now for various reasons as explained by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund by email to me on Monday and my call to them today. When the U.S. Marine Corps Band is going to appear this is bi g news and the U.S. Army Chorus. My cell is 516-509-6745. Thanks for your help on this.
