Leading Cloud Communications Service Provider Offers New Employment Opportunities for Military Veterans
Boston, Ma – October 17, 2023 – NWN Carousel, the leading Cloud Communications Service Provider, announced today its partnership with Headlamp, a national veteran transition accelerator that puts community, training and opportunity together for military veterans.
NWN Carousel is building upon its long standing commitment to our servicemen and women. NWN Carousel will work with Headlamp to identify job candidates and assist them in their transition into full-time, hybrid or remote positions within the company.
The partnership with Headlamp is a natural fit for NWN Carousel, which has a proud history of workforce and executive recruitment of our military veterans.
“As a former active duty Army Officer and later a member of the Massachusetts National Guard, and a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, I recognize the tremendous value and skill sets that military veterans can provide our organization,” said Andrea Morrison, NWN Carousel Chief People Officer. “We look forward to working with Headlamp in providing our military men and women with professional opportunities here at NWN Carousel.”
“Headlamp is extremely excited about the partnership with NWN Carousel, and the opportunity to help veterans transition well into good companies with great leadership,” said Steven J. Chang, Headlamp Founder and CEO. “Transitioning is hard for veterans. Finding companies that are not just veteran friendly, but also veteran ready, like NWN, makes our day and can make that transition for veterans easier.”
NWN Carousel recently onboarded Alan Spencer as a Customer Experience Manager with his recruitment facilitated by Headlamp. “Headlamp and NWN Carousel have provided me with the foundation not only to expand my horizons but to do so with immense confidence, setting the stage for a prosperous career and offering veterans a solid foundation for their transition to civilian life,” said Spencer.
This is just the latest NWN Carousel growth initiative to support our military veteran community. To commemorate National Hire a Veteran Day in July, the company hired Leah Phillips, a graduate of West Point, who is making the transition from her role as a U.S. Army officer in the 2nd Battalion, 5th Security Force Assistance Brigade. In May, 2023, NWN Carousel partnered with Massachusetts Fallen Heroes to sponsor its 2023 Patriots Week, a program designed to honor the service and sacrifice of military veterans and their families. NWN has also partnered with the Hiring Our Heroes program, aimed at recruiting and supporting veterans in the workplace.
Headlamp is a veteran transition accelerator that puts community, training and opportunity together for veterans. We help employers find the right veterans for their needs and leverage the DOD SkillBridge program to create best in class transitions. Our Career Liaison Officers (C-LNOs) work with employers and veterans to create these SkillBridge opportunities.
