Looking for a job? Try the dynamic telecommunications industry. Telecom career opportunities are being created as tens of thousands of current workers retire. And you’ve seen job-hunting advice all over the web. But how would you like to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak? At VIVIDFuture.org, you’ll find advice and best practice examples straight from telecom human resources professionals.
VIVIDFuture.org, a signature initiative of NACTEL, the National Coalition for Telecommunications Education and Learning, is a new career website built to arm incumbent telecom workers, as well as general job seekers, with useful industry information, telecom-specific education options, and tools to match and connect them to telecom job opportunities. The site lists more than 300 education and training programs with telecom-specific technical, sales and service and operations support programs. Currently, there are more than 1,500 jobs listed on the site.
“Our members are continually searching for education that will prepare them for new directions in telecommunications,” said Jim Spellane, director, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. “The fact that VIVIDFuture houses education resources and lists open telecom jobs makes it a most valuable asset for our industry and for those seeking to enter or advance in this dynamic field.”
