Meet Verizon HR Manager

Ok, we have talked about networking before, but are you Linkedin? Have you ever spent time on that site, searching for friends, colleagues, classmates, etc? It is amazing at how much of your past you can find on just this simple site. I spent some time this weekend searching, because it is all about the networking right, and I found over 50 people that I needed to connect with. Now I realize the "needed" to might be a little strong, but I almost felt complete after I started reaching out to my previously disengaged friends, family, etc. And when they joined my network I was overjoyed. Now maybe I will shoot for 1000 contacts......

I would highly recommend becoming a member of Linkedin both from a professional and personal standpoint. The site offers many perks, and for those looking to re-connect or find the next great career opportunity, you might just find it. Check it out, on http://www.linkedin.com/. And as usual, don't forget to visit our site at: www.verizon.com/telecomjobs

Hello Kelly,

I have previously blogged with you as well as received emails from you. When I try to respond to your email I get returned mail stating user unknown. Could you please contact me at my email so that we can resolve this.

Hello Kelly,
I'm a former employee in n.y.c., I had to retire in 2000 for family reasons,I've been trying to get a new position with no luck.I know they have been hiring new techs since I've applied any advice.
thanks

Joseph,

Thanks for the inquiry. As you may know, due to the needs of the business, we have very limited opportunities to rehire former employees. If you are interested in being considered in the event there are available opportunities, you must apply online at www.verizon.com/careers.

In the event there are job openings for which you can be considered, you will be contacted. You will not be contacted unless you are being considered for an available opening.

Please be aware that your prior service with Verizon is not a guarantee of re-employment. Your eligibility for re-employment will be determined by the applicable staffing process.

Thank you for your continued interest in Verizon and we wish you all the best, however as we stated above, there are limited opportunties.

Kelly,

I would be willing to work in any location near my area which is the Temple Hills, MD area. What is closest to me is any location in Washington DC; Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax VA which include Fairview Park and Ashburn locations or Greenbelt, Silver Spring, Lanham & Largo MD areas which include the Chesapeake Complex. My resume has already been placed on the Verizon website.

Thank you,
Katina

Dear Kelly,

Good morning, and let me first say that this blog is a great idea. I recently recieved an email from my university career service department regarding the Retail Leadership Development Program, which i promptly sent my resume in return. My resume was forwarded to a Verizon Wireless Recruiter. Yesterday I briefly spoke with a recruiter in Birmingham, who after a brief conversation said that she would forward my info to a recruiter in Alpharetta, GA, which is very close to where i live now.She told me that he would call and set up a face to face interview. But before we got off the phone she told me to apply for the program online, and I am having a difficult time locating that particular application online. Would you please forward me a link or some info regarding the application, as well as some contact info on the recruiters from Georgia and Alabama. Thank you so much for your time, hope to hear from you soon!

Thamks,
