AT&T announced that it’s currently looking to fill almost 450 openings statewide, including more than 200 positions here in South Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties). The break-out for the openings in the tri-county area is as follows:
- Miami-Dade County: 81
- Broward County: 86
- Palm Beach County: 37
In 2013, AT&T hired nearly 3,000 people statewide; nearly half of that number was hired for positions in South Florida:
- More than 800 jobs in Miami-Dade County
- Nearly 375 in Broward County
- Approximately 250 positions in Palm Beach County
So, if you are looking for a job in telecommunications, this might be for you. Most of the current openings are for wire technicians as well as retail and call center positions.
Many of the openings have been spurred by AT&T’s focus on delivering an effortless customer experience and Project Velocity IP (VIP). Project VIP is a multibillion dollar investment plan to expand and enhance AT&T’s IP broadband networks to support customers’ growing desire for high-speed Internet access and new mobile, app and cloud-based services. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to increase the density of its wireless network by adding more cell sites nationwide, as well as deploying more small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems.
Stay safe, stay connected, and get the job you want, guys and gals.
