  • Careers for Veterans in the Data Center Industry

A Data Center is typically a building, a dedicated space within a building, or a group of buildings used to house computer systems and associated components, such as telecommunications and storage systems. Data centers centralize an organization’s IT operations and equipment, as well as where it stores, manages, and disseminates its data. They house a network’s most critical systems and are vital to the continuity of daily operations. 

The Data Center industry presents an exciting and challenging opportunity for the right candidate. As a military veteran, you are aware that Officers and Enlisted Technicians possess unmatched training in electronic, mechanical, and electrical systems as well as proven leadership skills. Additionally, the training and experiences honed in the military ensures that veterans are well-versed in adhering to the strict operating procedures and protocols that are critical to the success of Data Centers and Mission Critical Facilities.  So, it comes as no surprise that these qualities and skills sets make veterans an ideal fit for a career in the Data Center industry.
