Did you just get fired, laid-off, or did you just arrive in Miami?
As part of its ongoing investment in South Florida, AT&T hired more than 570 employees locally from January through June of this year, and is looking to fill more than 230 current openings from Key West to Vero Beach. Statewide, the company hired more than 1,200 in the first six months of this year and is currently hiring for nearly 450 positions.
The current South Florida openings include more than 110 positions at the company’s Miami call center; nearly 100 retail openings throughout seven counties; and approximately 20 wire technician positions.
"People and businesses are connecting in more ways than ever before," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. "As a result, the potential for growth in South Florida technology industry is huge. We’re excited that companies such as AT&T are choosing Miami-Dade County for additional jobs and investments."
Much of AT&T’s South Florida hiring has been spurred by the company’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), an investment plan to expand and enhance AT&T’s wireless and wireline IP broadband networks to support the growing demand for high-speed Internet access, advanced TV services and new mobile cloud services.
AT&T currently employs more than 15,000 employees throughout Florida and consistently hires new talent. More information on AT&T’s current Florida jobs openings can be found here.
