The company has established a Military Talent Attraction team, which focuses on promoting AT&T's career opportunities to veterans and educating managers across AT&T on the benefits of hiring military veterans.
About 55 percent of the veterans hired by AT&T in 2013 made their transition to the private sector as technicians.
