GEICO Seeks Veterans for Unique IT Career Program

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/IT?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ITlt;/agt;–GEICO is seeking applicants for its Veteran
IT Transition Program
.

Military veterans interested in rewarding careers in information
technology (IT) are encouraged to apply. The program, based at GEICO
headquarters in Chevy Chase, Maryland, combines 12 months of classroom
work, mentoring and real-world experience to transform vets into
full-time GEICO IT analysts. Vets are paid and receive benefits during
the training process.

Applicants do not need previous tech experience or a college degree.
Since the Veteran
IT Transition Program
launched in 2015, a steady stream of alumni
have found rewarding and successful careers in GEICO’s award-winning IT
department.

“This program has been successful because veterans are results-oriented,
adaptable and self-reliant. These are among the skills critical for
those seeking a career in IT,” GEICO Director of IT Talent Management
Ted Robey said.

GEICO’s connection to the military dates back to its founding in 1936;
back then, the company exclusively offered policies to service members
and government employees. The Veteran
IT Transition Program
is one of the many ways GEICO is keeping that
connection strong. The company also offers special
discounts
for active duty service members and veterans and has a department
dedicated to supporting the needs
of the military community.
