It’s one thing to talk about veteran hiring. It’s another to see it in action. Get out the tissues for Time Warner Cable’s just-posted video about Ivory Alexander, who found himself homeless after the leaving the Navy. That changed when he was hired by Time Warner Cable, where he works as a high-speed data repair agent in San Diego. “The reason Time Warner Cable cares about vets is that they want to have vets succeed,” Alexander says in the three-minute film. “There’s a sign right on the door, ‘We love our vets.’” Read more about Alexander and TWC’s veterans hiring on the company’s blog.
The cable industry has made a special push to hire veterans, launching the Veterans Advisory Council in September. Other companies with vet hiring initiatives include Comcast-NBCU and Discovery Communications. SCTE has teamed with Comcast and Georgia Tech to help transition members from the military to careers in cable.
