Comcast enters pilot program to recruit and train military vets as cable techs

Looking to improve its public image and bolster its engineering ranks, Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA) has come up with a rather clever plan.

The MSO and SCTE are partnering with Georgia Tech to recruit and train military veterans for careers as cable techs.

The partnership is with Georgia Tech Professional Education's Veterans Education, Training and Transition program. Under the pilot training partnership, two initial groups of up to 20 veterans will be trained for cable telecommunications engineering careers.
