Charles Schwab Makes 2015 Top "Military Friendly Employers” List
The Charles Schwab Corporation has once again been named to the 2015 list of top "Military Friendly Employers" and top Military Spouse Friendly Employers. The recognition is awarded by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse and reflects the emphasis Schwab places on recruiting and training military veterans who are joining or rejoining the workforce.
“We are very focused on recruiting qualified candidates from the military and raising awareness of the fact that Schwab is an employer of choice in the military community,” said Ryan Kosowsky, managing director of talent acquisition, who also oversees “Forward March,” Schwab’s military recruiting initiative. Kosowsky, who left active service in the U.S. Army as a major in 2012, has had a 16-year career in the military and continues to serve in the Arizona Army National Guard in addition to his role at Schwab.
“Because military veterans and reservists share Schwab values like devotion to teamwork, discipline and leadership, they fit extremely well into our company’s culture of service,” Kosowsky said. “In fact, in many ways they are ideal job candidates, and we are committed to making their re-entry into the job market and onboarding at Schwab a great experience.”
