In our labs in Waltham, Mass., we’re busy working with partners to develop the future of TV.



Winter Doesn't Chill Summer Job Push

kathy_brown_133x175.jpgWhile it’s bitter cold outside, Verizon is already looking to summer, specifically summer jobs.


Today I participated in the “Summer Jobs +” event at the White House to represent Verizon’s internship program for the summer of 2012. This event was hosted by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and Director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling.


Verizon has established many partnerships to spread the word about our summer internship positions in the hopes of attracting a diverse, dynamic group of young people. We appreciate the White House and their efforts to connect the dots between jobs, youth, and the not-for-profit community that provide the steady drumbeat of support critical to the success of this initiative.
