More than 60 jobs open with Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless has more than 60 retail jobs open in Indiana in the greater Indianapolis area, Lafayette, Bloomington and Fort Wayne and the company is hosting job fairs and webinars Tuesday to find tech-savvy retail employees.

The company is using online job webinars and also meeting with candidates in Indianapolis after applicants attend and complete the online sessions.

Not only is Verizon Wireless hiring, the company’s Indiana roster of retail employees has increased by 172 compared to the same time last year. The number of full-time employees in Indiana is currently 709.

Verizon has been increasing its positions due to the increasing number of new tech devices coming on the market this year – such as the iPhone 4S – and the increasing demand for those products. The company also wants to reduce wait times for in-store sales.

Verizon Wireless’ virtual career fairs for Indiana positions are scheduled Tuesday, November 1:

Session One: 10 a.m. to noon
Session Two: 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Job seekers can reserve a spot on Facebook by visiting http://www.facebook.com/verizonwirelesscareers and clicking on the events listing on the left side of the page. A waiting list will be created for those unable to secure online seats.
