  Charles Schwab Earns 2014 Military-Friendly Employer® Title

Business Wire

SAN FRANCISCO -- November 11, 2013

The Charles Schwab Corporation has been named to the 2014 list of top
“Military Friendly Employers”. The Military Friendly Employer^® title is
awarded by Victory Media,  publisher of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse. This
recognition reflects the emphasis Schwab places on recruiting and training
military veterans who are joining or rejoining the workforce.

“We want to be known as an employer of choice in the military community,” said
Ryan Kosowsky, managing director of talent acquisition, who oversees Schwab’s
military recruiting initiative called "Forward March: Taking the Next Step
with Schwab." Kosowsky, who left active service in the U.S. Army as a major in
2012, has had a 15-year career in the military and today serves in the Arizona
Army National Guard in addition to his role at Schwab.

“Military veterans and reservists are among our ideal job candidates,”
Kosowsky said. “They share so many of our values and acclimate well into the
culture of service that exists at Schwab, bringing qualities like devotion to
teamwork, discipline and proven leadership skills.”

Companies competed for the Military Friendly Employer title via a survey of
over 5,000 companies with resulting survey data independently tested by Ernst
& Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory
Media. Criteria for the survey included a benchmark score across key programs
and policies such as the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the
percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs, and
company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.

Now in its 11th year, Military Friendly Employers^® media is the premier
resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian
employment. Each year companies taking the survey are held to a higher
standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and
weightings developed with the assistance of an Advisory Board consisting of
leaders in the military recruitment community. A full list of board members
can be found at

Along with other 2014 Military Friendly Employers, Schwab will be showcased in
the December edition of G.I. Jobs magazine and online at

Launched in 2011, the 100,000 Jobs Mission committed to hiring at least

companies have already hired 92,869 veterans and have now doubled their
commitment and plan to hire a total of 200,000 by 2020. For more information,
