Expect the unexpected from TDS Telecom

Broadband expansion driving job growth at leading communications company.

TDS Telecom (TDS®) is investing millions to provide new products and expand communications offerings in communities across the United States. New investments mean employment growth; in fact, more than 200 positions are currently available at TDS Telecom.

Right now, the job market is hot. Unemployment rates are at all-time lows. Companies are looking to attract the very best people to fill open positions by offering quality healthcare benefits, educational assistance, and paid time off to volunteer.

In a recent letter to employee hopefuls President and CEO Jim Butman challenged job-seekers to take a look at TDS. “Are you in a job that causes you dread on Sunday night? Then perhaps it’s time to find something new. You owe it to yourself to find a rewarding, challenging career in these great economic times.”

A quick look at the open positions at TDS tells you the company is growing rapidly, especially in booming cities like: Madison, Wisconsin; St. George, Utah; and Bend, Oregon, as well as places like Monroe, Wisconsin, and Alamogordo, New Mexico.

Technology Transformation
Now known as a broadband-centric technology company, TDS has re-invented itself and continues to gain traction in a competitive marketplace. According to Butman, once viewed as a traditional phone company, TDS is undergoing a fascinating fiber-centric transformation.

“We are investing millions of dollars to expand high-speed fiber optic data networks and grow our next-generation TV service, as well as other video products,” added Butman. “This growth is just one of the many reasons I’m excited about our future—and one of the many reasons I hope you’ll join us.”

Recently the company announced new areas of expansion and fiber- to-the-home technology installations designed to deliver next-generation internet services. These expansions, coupled with fiber deployments in the areas the company currently serves, are creating demand for new employees. Powered by new industry-leading technologies, TDS employs people who can take complex business operations and create innovative solutions to overcome diverse challenges. From software and application developers to geographical mapping experts, “We have some surprising career paths available,” Butman stated. “We also have some of the smartest people in the communications industry working here. Our people truly set us apart. We deliver the best. Therefore, we must employ the best!”
