WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GEICO joins the national Veterans Day observance by confirming its plan
to recruit more veterans for its unique IT

Last year GEICO launched this unique recruiting program to train
veterans with no prior experience for careers in the IT industry.

“Supporting our veterans has always been one of GEICO’s core values,”
says Peter Berlin, Corporate Recruiter. “The Veterans IT Professional
Development Program is just one initiative GEICO offers to uphold our
commitment to supporting the men and women who have served our country.”
The 12-month paid training program is designed to provide veterans with
comprehensive IT training, mentoring and hands-on technical experience.
By the end of the program, participants will have built a strong
foundation for a successful career as a full-time GEICO IT professional.
“Despite what some may think, finding a job can be quite challenging for
many military veterans,” says Tim Noonan, programmer analyst, who joined
GEICO’s program in 2015. “That’s why initiatives like GEICO’s Veterans
IT Professional Development Program are so important. After my service
in the United States Army, I joined the program and it was one of the
best post-military career decisions I have made.”
The program is based at GEICO’s corporate headquarters in Chevy Chase,
Md. Previous IT experience is not required, nor is a college degree;
however, GEICO encourages and supports those pursing their degrees.
Veterans with strong analytic, problem-solving and communication skills,
and a desire to meet the challenges of entering the IT career field are
encouraged to visit GEICO’s
