Did you know that more than 500,000 veterans call Arizona home? We work to hire members of the military community at all levels across our organization. Henry Calles, an installation technician in Southern Arizona, is one of our local military employees. In 2002, Henry contemplated joining the military on the heels of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks in New York City. Through much self-reflection and drive, Henry enlisted, taking up a mechanics roll in the Army. From 2004 through 2005 Henry was deployed in Iraq.
Comcast NBCUniversal is committed to supporting and hiring the military community – whether you’re a member of the military community beginning your civilian career, or a veteran entrepreneur accelerating your business, we want to support those who dedicated their lives to service.
We support these communities in a variety of ways, such as through a resource portal, which helps with the transition to civilian life, and we released an e-book and guide titled Heroes Get Hired: How to Use Your Military Experience to Master the Interview.
“Helping our veterans transform military service into civilian success is good for our nation and good for our business,” says Comcast VP of Veterans and Military Affairs, General Carol Eggert.
We know members of the military community have a core skillset that makes our teams stronger, and since 2010 Comcast hired more than 15,000 veterans, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouses. We’re committed to supporting those who are serve our great nation and their families. We continue to embrace the military community – because it is the right thing to do for our business and for those who give back to our Country.
