Would you like a home based job?
N.E.W Customer Service Companies is the leading provider of extended service plans and has launched a nationwide effort to create those jobs for veterans and military families. The jobs program received major spotlight by an initiative led by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to hire 25,000 veterans and military spouses by the end of 2013 through the American Logistics Association. Since joining the program last fall, NEW has hired more than 250 veterans and military spouses and will carry on to target this population through jobs programs.
NEW is seeking employees with previous retail and customer service experience to provide claims and technical support to more than 150 million customers. Over the next several months, the company will be accepting applications and interviewing candidates to fill these positions. Interested candidates will need to have access to a computer, high–speed Internet connection, basic analog landline and a headset.
Candidates who are offered a position will spend four weeks of online training followed by two weeks of on–the–job training, which is paid by the company.
Interested candidates will need to visit the company’s website for more information and fill out an application under the section “Military/Military Spouse Opportunities”. A virtual job fair will be held on Thursday, August 16 at 12:00 p.m. EST.
