Comcast to hire 11K military community members by end of 2021

November 15, 2018 / Riia O'Donnell

Comcast plans to hire an additional 11,000 military community members by the end of 2021, including veterans, military spouses and National Guard and Reserve members, the company announced early November. Meeting the goal would bring Comcast to a total of 21,000 military hires by the end of 2021, it said. The company supports transition into the workforce for military personnel, with programming that includes mentorships, professional development geared specifically toward those who serve and their spouses, volunteering opportunities and a VetNet employee resource group. In 2018, the company became a founding partner of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring 100,000 Military Spouses initiative. Targeted to the families of service members who are often unemployed or underemployed due to frequent relocation requirements, the initiative seeks to raise awareness of military families' situations and encourage business to invest in that pool of applicants, Comcast said.
