Comcast and NBCUniversal reached their joint goal of hiring 1,000 vets as part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s “Hiring Our Heroes” initiative two years ahead of schedule, and they now say they’ll employ 1,000 more by 2015. During March 15-28, Hiring Our Heroes will host several job fairs across America, including Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Fort Hood, Fayetteville and Dayton, all supported by Comcast and NBCU.

Comcast also is offering its programming resources to help vets find careers at other employers through such programs as the “Hire a Veteran” Xfinity TV initiative. “Our goal is to offer veterans tangible tools that help them with their transition back into the workforce and civilian life,” comments Beth Colleton, senior vice president/Corporate Social Responsibility at NBCU.
