Hiring America’s Heroes: Veterans and the Florida Internet & Television Industry

At Florida Internet & Television, our member companies regard our men and women in uniform as heroes.

Soon, America will have nearly two million veterans under the age of 34 who served in post-September 11 conflicts. Despite having years of experience in the world’s most technologically-advanced military, many struggle to find gainful employment in the civilian world. Worse, the veteran employment rate consistently ranks above the overall unemployment rate for other workers.

After they leave active duty, the last thing these heroes should have to worry about is being able to provide for their families.

Like all Americans, they deserve careers which empower them to purchase homes, send their children to college, and fulfill the American dream.

That’s why the Florida Internet & Television industry is proud to be a leading employer of veterans in the Sunshine State, where more than 10 percent of our employees are veterans.

Not only do we employ veterans, but we intentionally recruit them, offering a host of benefits and support services designed to support a successful transition to civilian life for them and their families.

Not only is it the right thing to do; it is the smart thing to do. Veterans’ distinctive work ethics, project management skills and ability to work in teams are critical to the success of our companies.

Examples of our members’ benefits for veterans:

  • Guard & Reserve Leave Time
  • Tuition Assistance for continuing education
  • Military Concierge Services
  • Technician Apprenticeships
  • Veterans’ Networks
  • Supportive and understanding workplace culture for veterans
