Job seekers with a passion for technology and for creating excellent customer experiences are invited to apply for immediate openings that Verizon Wireless is looking to fill in Chattanooga. The wireless company will hold a Career Open House event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 17 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 2343 Shallowford Village Drive, Chattanooga.

Verizon is particularly interested in providing career opportunities to returning veterans and recent graduates.

“Those returning home from serving our nation overseas possess the types of skills that equate to success in a Verizon career,” said Walter Crews, talent acquisition manager at Verizon. “We also know that recent college graduates are looking to launch their careers, and Verizon offers tremendous benefits for those who value an environment of diversity, teamwork and performance excellence. Our career paths go far beyond retail sales—They range from marketing, network engineering, IT, public relations, management, customer service, human resources and more.”

"Verizon provides competitive compensation and a Total Rewards benefit program that includes 401(k) savings plan with company matching contributions, medical, vision and dental insurance, an on-site fitness center and health and dependent care spending accounts. Employees are also eligible for up to $8,000 per year in tuition reimbursement," officials stated.
