Charter said today that it is expanding its outreach to the nation's veterans – letting them know there's a place for them on its "highly skilled and diverse team."
One of the key steps in this process was the establishment of a partnership with Recruit Military, a full-service military-to-civilian recruiting firm.
Recruit Military serves all branches and ranks of the armed forces, and its services are free to military veterans.
The process also provides Charter with access to the firm's resume-database search engine, so Charter recruiters can identify talented and experienced job candidates. The database contains nearly 600,000 job-seeking veterans, with hundreds more added daily.
Charter's recruitment strategy also includes an advertising component that includes placing a full-page ad in G.I. Jobs, a digital and print publication distributed to every military base nationwide.
The company will initiate the use of social media to promote its recruitment efforts.
"This is a wonderful means for Charter to connect with veterans and develop our workforce," said Sarah Hankins, Charter's director of recruiting, "and we expect it to help us find and hire a significant number of new employees."
In Wisconsin, Charter is actively recruiting for more than 50 positions in a variety of fields, such as technical support, engineering, field auditors, broadband installers, customer service, sales and operations. The company reached out to the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs to identify opportunities to spread the word about career opportunities.
"Military veterans possess valuable, proven skills, developed through some of the best training available and most trying conditions imaginable," said Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary John A. Scocos. "One of our main goals is to assist those former service members in finding quality employment, and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with those, like Charter, who push to hire our military veterans."
