Verizon held three job fairs March 21 to attract beginning network technicians for its FiOS home communications system installations in the company’s busy summer season.

For persons hired, the seasonal job could lead to permanent work, or to callbacks in future summers, said Tina Saputo, a regional recruiting manager based in Basking Ridge, N.J. A manager of last year’s group echoed her statement, noting some who were hired then are still working as network techs, and some will come back to work this summer. For others, the manager said, either the individual or the company found the “fit wasn’t good for this job.”

“The guy who installed your TV and internet? Did you like him? That’s who we’re hiring,” said Nicolas Relacion, a military recruiter for the company based in Wilmington, Del. He added that Verizon has other types of jobs open, and that women were among the applicants at the fair.
