Charter Expands Efforts To Recruit Military Veterans

Stocks in this article: CHTR

ST. LOUIS, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on the broad range of skills they gained in the military, Charter 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. This 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 involved 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 Missouri and Illinois, Charter is actively recruiting for 39 positions in a variety of fields, such as technical support, engineering, field auditors, broadband installers, customer service, sales and operations.

"As a veteran, it's extremely important to know Charter not only supports, but actively recruits from the military," said Kevin Smith, a Charter field technician. "When I went to military job fairs and recruiting events, I kept noticing the Charter logo.  I'm proud to know we're reaching out even more now."

Charter recently participated in a "Hiring our Heroes" job fair and continues to seek out additional opportunities to attract more veterans.
