It takes a great deal of drive, commitment and teamwork to succeed in the military.

​The same is true for AT&T.​​

It takes a great deal of drive, commitment and teamwork to succeed in the military, where you contributed to a disciplined, motivated, successful team.  The same is true for AT&T & is why we are such a great fit for someone transitioning out of the military.  We continually recognize the contributions of our Armed Forces.  In every area of life, you'll find retired military and active reservists who made the transition to civilian life.  

G.I. Jobs agrees. CLICK HERE​​ and find out why we’re consistently named one of the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers by G.I. Jobs​​​​​​.

Veteran Talent Network & Job Search Advisor Sessions

We understand the benefits of someone who has the same experience as you and who can help you translate your military skills to help find your perfect civilian career match.  This is why we have AT&T Job Search Advisor Sessions to connect you directly with a Veteran Advisor who will help point you in the right direction to apply for a job that fits your military background and future career goals.  To sign up for a session, visit our AT&T Careers for Veterans page and begin by providing a little information about your military background. 

Military Skills Translator

If you’re looking for a career outside of the military, it can be difficult to match your military experience with a civilian job. Our military skills translator can help you search our available opportunities using your Military Occupational Code or military title

Tips for Transitioning Military

  • To avoid confusion, make sure to translate any military jargon and abbreviations into civilian terms. This extends to your resume as well. Here are some great tips on writing a civilian resume.
  • Your interviewer will want to know about your training, certifications, milestones and accomplishments. Be prepared to talk about them.
  • We’d also like to hear about your management or fiscal responsibilities in the military. Be prepared to talk about how many people you supervised and quantify the value of equipment for which you were responsible. For example, if you served in the Mechanized Infantry and were a Tank Commander, a Bradley is a $3.1M piece of equipment. Also include any relevant cost savings, goal accomplishment ahead of plan, special awards, promotions and recognition, etc.
  • You gained various competencies, skills and behaviors in the military. Tell us which ones you think may translate well into a corporate environment.

    Great place to work! Great Benefits.


    Lots of rules, some of which can be broken, but unclear which. There is a bit of a glass ceiling - it can be hard to move up. Some department are poorly managed, so they getaway with a lot. Other departments you know your what is expected of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees need to be held accountable for the work. If not performing, get someone who will.
