AT&T announced Wednesday that it will be doubling its hiring goal for veterans and their family members.

The company has a goal to hire 10,000 veterans and family members nationwide in the next five years.

In Missouri, there are currently more than 200 positions available.

So far this year, AT&T has hired more than 3,600 veterans.

About 55 percent of the veterans hired by AT&T this year made their transition to the private sector as technicians.

Other veterans and their family members are finding positions across AT&T as IT professionals, retail and call center representatives, project managers, financial analysts and supply chain managers.

A select group of junior officers and college-educated noncommissioned officers are being recruited into AT&T leadership development programs.

AT&T’s goal of hiring 10,000 veterans and their family members over the next five years doubles a goal it set in April with the White House’s Joining Forces Initiative.

AT&T also announced that it is beginning a program with JPMorgan Chase and the 100,000 Jobs Mission in order to create a veteran talent exchange.

The exchange will allow active-duty military and veteran job candidates to “opt-in” to a talent-sharing database. This database will make it possible to share and refer veteran candidates among participating companies.
