News : AT&T Continues 2014 Hiring in Ohio
Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 13, 2014 -- AT&T* announces that the company is seeking applicants to fill more than 120 jobs around Ohio, including more than 90 new jobs. This comes as the company totals its hires in Ohio over the 22-month period from January 2013 through October 2014 at more than 1,600, including positions in IT/engineering, retail, technician, call center, business solutions and corporate support categories.
The hirings reflect AT&T's continuing investment in its Ohio network and team.
State Senator Cliff Hite says, "I'm excited to hear that AT&T continues to offer good-paying job openings with benefits throughout the Buckeye State, many of which are focused on the build-out of their broadband network."
AT&T's investments included deployment of new macro cell sites, small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems across the state as a part of AT&T's Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced in 2012 to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. The company also expanded and enhanced its 4G LTE network, which provides ultra-fast mobile Internet speeds, and deployed new Wi-Fi hot spots.
Hiring our nation's heroes is a priority for the company. More than 3,600 veterans started new careers at AT&T across the country in 2013. And with veterans' skills proving to be a good fit for the company's needs, AT&T has doubled its hiring goal for veterans and their family members to 10,000 over a five year period, consistent with its commitment to equal employment opportunities. Military veterans can learn more about careers at AT&T here.
