Edelman Reaches Out to Hire Veterans
Pioneer Thinking. Breakthrough Communications. Rewarding Careers.
For more than half a century, Edelman has defined the practice and direction of public relations. Today, they are the world’s largest independent communications firm. Joining their company of industry-leading communications professionals may be the most rewarding decision you’ll ever make for your career.
In a recent Holmes Report survey, Edelman was cited as the No. 1 firm that PR professionals would choose to work at other than their own. Why? We think it’s because of their distinctive, entrepreneurial culture, which provides exciting opportunities to chart your own path, collaborate with dedicated Edelman people around the globe, and put your personal stamp on world-class communications programs for only the best clients.
Their commitment to continuous learning is another way they will help you shape your talent, pursue your passions, and discover your strengths. Their full-spectrum benefits program fosters work-life balance so that you can enjoy a better, more fulfilling career.
