In Tulsa, Oklahoma, Verizon is expected to bring more jobs to the local economy this year. In fact, the Tulsa World reports that Verizon officials anticipate that they will hire more workers across the state to handle customer service, retail and various other tasks.

Verizon replaced telecommunications firm MCI Communications in Tulsa in 2006 and has displayed significant support for the local economy. If the company boosts its hiring, more crew members could provide substantial support to help the company further enhance its operations across Oklahoma.

While some telecommunications industry experts found that the job market was tough for professionals in 2012, conditions are gradually improving. A recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report on U.S. employment showed that telecommunications firms hired more workers between October and November 2012. Meanwhile, many companies in this industry are investing more resources to recruit qualified professionals, which could significantly impact job seekers across the nation.

If more telecommunications employers attract skilled experts to fill vacancies, businesses could watch their profits increase. Additionally, these firms may help the country further reduce its jobless rate, as more talented specialists will provide consistent support to firms.
