According to the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, New Mexico is home to a total of 161,311 veterans. Our veterans and their families are important to the economic growth and vitality of our state and local communities, and supporting them through employment opportunities and employee resources is a critical responsibility for our business and community leaders.
Comcast NBCUniversal is committed to supporting and hiring the military community, like Leigh Branston of Albuquerque. 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.
