AT&T announced that it hired more than 1,300 new jobs – and filled a total of over 1,900 jobs in Georgia in 2014.

In addition to those jobs already filled in Georgia this year, AT&T currently has more than 300 openings available across the state. More than 280 of those openings are newly-created jobs in areas including call centers, retail support, technicians and corporate support.

Much of the hiring has been spurred by AT&T's Project Velocity IP (VIP). Project VIP is an investment plan to expand and enhance IP broadband networks to support customer's growing desire for mobile, ultra-fast and reliable access to everything on the Internet, particularly video.

"As we've continued to invest in our network and expand our customer base in Georgia, we've also remained committed to providing excellent customer service," said Beth Shiroishi, president of AT&T Georgia.

"From connected cars to a connected home, and from wearable technology to mobile Internet, these are exciting times for us. In turn, we're looking for employees who can build on that excitement and provide the services our customers expect and deserve. We certainly thank Governor Deal and the members of the Georgia General Assembly who have worked to create a business-friendly environment where industries want to invest and create job opportunities for all Georgians."

AT&T currently employs more than 21,000 employees throughout Georgia and consistently hires new talent. More information on AT&T's current Florida jobs openings can be found at http://connect.att.jobs/georgia-jobs.
