Brian Roberts, Comcast Chairman and CEO, has announced that Comcast and NBCUniversal are commiting to hire 1,000 veterans as part of the Hiring our Heroes campaign: “It’s clear that the leaders of tomorrow are the youth of today. There’s no better youth of today than the people who’ve been fighting overseas and protecting our country.”
The 1,000 positions will be filled over the next three years.
