DOVER, Del. -- May 28, 2013

Discover Bank and Delaware’s Congressional Delegation of U.S. Sens. Tom Carper
and Chris Coons and Congressman John Carney recognized the first group of
employees to join a new Discover work-at-home jobs program for military
personnel and their family members at a ceremony today at Dover Air Force
Base.

Discover’s work-at-home program provides training, resources and job
opportunities for new employees seeking careers within the financial services
industry. In addition to training, Discover supplies each new employee with
the proper equipment and installation support to ensure a successful working
environment at home. The new employees' work will be coordinated out of
Discover's New Castle call center. Recruitment efforts for the new program
focus on military personnel and their family members from the Dover Air Force
Base and those associated with the base in the surrounding area.

“Discover is committed to helping veterans and their families secure
rewarding, flexible and full-time employment opportunities in our community,”
said Jim Roszkowski, president of Discover Bank. “We appreciate the help of
Dover Air Force Base and Senator Carper as we actively work to attract,
develop and retain veterans, reservists and military spouses.”

Discover’s new program addresses a need to connect military personnel with
skilled, flexible and local employment opportunities while also addressing
Discover’s growing business needs. Discover Bank is reviewing plans to extend
the program to other military bases as it provides veterans with the
flexibility in where and how they work.

“I was proud to be able to connect Discover Bank to the skilled workforce here
at Dover Air Force Base,” said U.S. Sen. Tom Carper. “I’ve long believed that
one of the best things you can do for someone is to help them find a good job.
This program is a win-win because it helps provide military families with the
opportunity to be trained and employed close to or in their own homes,
allowing them to stay near their community and close to their children.”

“The financial services sector offers enormous professional opportunities here
in Delaware, and Discover's program is creatively helping more Delawareans to
take advantage of them,” Senator Chris Coons said. “The work-at-home program
gives our talented neighbors the chance at a career that works around the time
constraints of a busy schedule. For military spouses, especially, that
flexibility can make all the difference. I applaud Discover for launching this
program, and congratulate the first class of employees on completing their
training.”

“The men and women serving in our military make sacrifices for our country
every day. They deserve to know that when they come home, their service will
be recognized, and that while they’re away serving their country, their
families are being looked after,” said Congressman Carney.“Discover has
realized that hiring military families and veterans is both the right thing to
do, and adds skilled, knowledgeable employees to its
workforce.Congratulations to this first class of new hires graduating today.
I look forward to seeing many more come through this program.”
