Supporting Our Veterans by Hiring Our Heroes
Cox Communications is pleased to once again partner with Hiring Our Heroes to provide help and support to veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses as they find meaningful employment opportunities outside of their military careers. Through the Corporate Fellowship Program, Cox is providing on–the–job training and helping our service members bridge the gap between their military service and civilian careers.
“Hiring our Heroes provides Cox access to a very talented pool of military service members transitioning into the civilian workforce after serving our county,” said Kevin Clark, Sr. Manager of Talent Acquisition at Cox. “These veterans come from all branches of the military and bring significant diversity of thought and experiences to our organization. We are able to provide Hiring our Heroes fellows a 12-week immersion in our company and give them an opportunity to display their capabilities to position themselves for conversion into a full-time position.”
Hiring Our Heroes is a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation program that bridges the civilian-military divide in the business community. The initiative connects the military community with civilian companies to create economic opportunity and a strong and diversified workforce.
As a Hiring Our Heroes employer, Cox offers opportunities for transitioning military personnel to participate in a corporate fellowship during their last 180 days of service. Cox’s Hiring Our Heroes fellowships last 12 weeks. There are three fellowship cycles each year, beginning in January, May and September.
Our fellowship program offers many different opportunities and areas of focus. Previous fellows have worked in areas including technology, project management, service assurance, risk assessment and more. You can read some of their stories below.
