Our Employer of the Week series features one company each week that has made a commitment to hiring veterans. This week’s employer is Verizon.

Verizon is one of the largest communication technology companies in the world. With its $126 billion annual revenue, Verizon’s networks include interactive entertainment, digital media, the Internet of Things and broadband services.

Verizon was ranked the #1 2018 Military Friendly Company, the 2018 Military Times Best for Vets Employer and the 2018 Military Friendly Top 10 Spouse Employer. The company currently employs more than 11,000 veterans and attended 172 military recruiting events in 2017.

Verizon’s website demonstrates why they have received so much recognition as a company that supports veterans, active duty military personnel and military spouses. Their careers page hosts networks for both a Military Talent Network and a Military Spouse Talent Network. Their Military Skills Matcher helps veterans search for careers that closely match specific military skills by suggesting jobs based on functional interests, location and branch of service.

“As a leading global communications company, Verizon is always looking for strong leaders to help us stay competitive in the marketplace,” said Lowell McAdam, chief executive officer of Verizon and a veteran. “With their superb training, discipline and experience in supporting our country, our more than 12,000 veterans contribute their skills across the entire spectrum of jobs in our company to help Verizon be the best in our industry."

Verizon is one of the eleven founding companies of the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition of companies that have all made a commitment to hiring veterans. As of March 2018, the Veteran Jobs Mission has hired 455,831 veterans.
