Corporate America Supports You works with several companies that offer information technology career opportunities. We asked Marathon TS and Activision about their hiring initiatives and job opportunities.

Marathon TS

1. Tell us about your company. Marathon TS is HUB Zone, Woman-Owned Small Business based out of Virginia. Marathon TS provides a full range of recruitment

services for clients that require support from professionals with specialized skills and experience in a specific technical area or subject matter. Marathon TS also provides IT services, including strategy, operations, transformation, and mission support for prime contractors.

2. What job opportunities are available? We have numerous job opportunities available around the country for both Cleared and Uncleared individuals. The majority of our positions are IT-based ranging from Help Desk through Network/Systems Architects, Developers etc. Also, we are often looking for Project Managers, Business Analysts, and Technical Writers.

3. Who would be a good candidate for these positions? What skills would successful candidates have? Given the variety of our positions, ideal candidates are going to be IT savvy though required experience and technical ability are obviously dependent upon specific positions.

4. Why is your company interested in hiring veterans/service members? We work with many Federal clients both as a subcontractor and a primer contractor, and many of our roles require Active Clearances or the ability to obtain them. Given the lengthy timeline to obtain a clearance, Active Duty, Reservists, and Veterans make ideal candidates because they currently have or have had a clearance. Service members also are familiar with the types of work environments which we support.
