Office Depot is partnering with Military.com to provide job opportunities to veterans, the Boca Raton-based office supplier said Monday.
Thousands of employment opportunities across Office Depot -- including supply chain, sales, e-commerce, IT, human resources, marketing and retail among others -- are now posted to Military.com's Veteran Employment Center, where active and retired service personnel can view and apply.
In South Florida, there are about 300 jobs listed on Office Depot's career website, jobs.officedepot.com. They include finance manager, logistics specialist and several sales consultant positions at various store locations.
All Office Depot. positions posted to the company's career's page and to Military.com will connect to Military.com's 'Military Skills Translator' to help veterans find the most appropriate employment positions based on their military specialties and experience.
"The U.S. military is one of the best-trained work forces in the world, and our veterans have numerous skills and values that translate well to the business environment," said Roland Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Office Depot.
Smith is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and served in the Army as an aviation maintenance officer and pilot.
