WaveCreste supports "Hiring Our Heroes"

Company continues pledge to create jobs for U.S. military veterans 

WaveCreste is proud to be a part of the upcoming “Hiring Our Heroes” event in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at which skilled veterans are matched with employers looking to fill open positions.

WaveCreste has been dedicated to providing superior, cost-effective outsourcing services from within U.S. borders since 2006. We believe domestic resources in rural U.S. communities are the ideal solution for many American companies’ IT outsourcing projects and needs.

With this focus, WaveCreste has always been dedicated to the hiring of our qualified veterans making the transition from military into civilian life. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in this event, where we will be continuing our search to fill our current and future openings with as many qualified veterans as possible, and we are anxious to meet other companies with an interest in supporting this movement.

“Supporting our veterans is not just a great thing to do, it also makes sense for our business as we are constantly seeking skilled professionals to join our teams across the U.S.,” said Greg Hanno, vice president of human resources and operations for WaveCreste. “The men and women coming out of our armed forces are some of the hardest-working and highly-trained professionals you’ll ever hope to find.”

The “Hiring Our Heroes” event will be held Saturday, June 22, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Job seekers and employers can register at https://hoh.greatjob.net

H-1B Workers Not Best Or Brightest, Study Says

Though many US companies rely on the H-1B program to bring in technical talent from abroad, “A study released on Thursday finds that imported IT talent is often less talented than U.S. workers.”

As with WaveCreste, choosing to work with a domestic, rural-sourced IT provider allows companies access to top IT talent in US time zones, located in nearby US communities, at more cost-effective rural rates, and without the hassles of language and cultural barriers.

Wages in China are already about five times higher than as recently as in 2000, “and they are expected to keep rising 18 percent a year,” writes reporter Charles Fishman, who in The Atlantic predicts an “insourcing boom” for the United States. As U.S. labor union priorities change, from seeking higher wages to keeping jobs, America becomes more competitive. He cites the two-tier wage scale at General Electric’s Appliance Park in Louisville, Ky.
