AT&T plans to hire 5,000 veterans over the next five years. The company announced its hiring goal at a White House event with First Lady Michelle Obama and other companies supporting the Joining Forces Initiative that she co-founded. Those jobs include more about 55 in South Carolina and close to 100 in North Carolina.
AT&T also plans to work with JPMorgan Chase on the 100,000 Jobs Mission. The companies will launch a veteran talent exchange later this year. The exchange will allow active-duty military and veteran job candidates to opt-in to a talent-sharing database to help with sharing and referring veteran candidates eligible for any of the 100,000 jobs. The 100,000 Jobs Mission was launched in 2011 by JPMorgan Chase, AT&T and nine other companies. It has grown to 101 companies committed to hiring at least 100,000 veterans by 2020. So far they've hired 64,238 veterans.
AT&T has a veteran career site which includes tools for veterans to match their military skills with AT&T jobs. You can access that site here: veteran career site
