If you happen to be a tech savvy individual who is in the market of looking for employment in the wireless industry, you may want to keep your eyes steady at Verizon Wireless. The number one wireless carrier in the country was recognized by Computerworld as one of the top workplaces for information technology professionals. Coming in at 8th place overall, the carrier managed to come in the top ten for the second straight year and was regarded as the highest ranking wireless company in the list. The basis for their rankings are pretty intense as Computerworld's comprehensive questionnaire rates a bevy of things like benefits, diversity, career development, training, and retention – all of the ingredients needed in attracting the IT professional. Scott Finnie, editor in chief of Computerworld said, “To be among the Best Places to Work in I.T., it's not enough just to seek out and hire the most talented I.T. people, offer them competitive pay and provide great benefits. The organizations that made this year's Best Places to Work list sustain a dynamic work environment in which I.T. professionals keep their hands on the latest technologies and work on projects that are business critical.” Being the sole wireless carrier in the top 10 list makes for a compelling argument for Verizon's stance at being number one in the industry.
