Company hires for finance jobs in San Antonio

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

USAA, a San Antonio-based Fortune 500 company that provides financial services to military members, is hiring for finance jobs in San Antonio.

The company plans on hiring for 1000 jobs.

There will be jobs available in insurance, banking, investments and financial services.

Recently the USAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program released a study identifying U.S. metro areas that offer America’s new generation of veterans more opportunities to find a military skill-related job. The remainder of the top 10 list includes:
Oklahoma City
Austin, Texas
Norfolk, Va.
Tampa, Fla.
Salt Lake City
Orlando, Fla.
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Researchers reviewed variables for 379 major U.S. metropolitan areas, including:

Employment opportunities in the top industries employing post-9/11 veterans, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor (March 2013).
Overall job climate based on unemployment rate and recent job growth.
Presence of colleges/universities.
Access to Veterans Affairs hospitals and health resources.

“More than 1 million service members and their families are expected to leave the armed forces over the next five years,” said Eric Eversole, executive director of Hiring Our Heroes and Navy Reserve Judge Advocate Commander. “We must remain vigilant to help these men and women find employment, and this list highlights the top places where veterans can put their skills to work.”

“Some of the keys to a successful military separation are planning and preparing well in advance, including determining where you want to live and work,” said Eric Engquist, executive director of military transitions at USAA. “This study and resources, like USAA’s military separation checklist and military separation assessment tool, can help those who have left or are considering leaving the service make their transition as smooth as possible.”
