AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A Texas agency has joined with AT&T Inc. to help match qualified military veterans to more than 600 technical jobs.
The partnership was announced Monday by the Texas Veterans Commission and Dallas-based AT&T Inc.
The jobs are part of AT&T's new U-verse integrated digital TV, high speed internet and voice service. The positions are in Austin, Corpus Christi, the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Houston, Lubbock, Midland and San Antonio.
AT&T has established dozens of call centers in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan so troops can call home. The company says it has donated nearly $8 million worth of prepaid calling cards to military personnel.
