"I believe Verizon is an incredible company with much to offer their employees. I learned a wealth of knowledge from this company in the field of business and investments that I can apply to any company that I become an asset for. Through Verizon I managed to obtain a real estate license, become a home owner and a business owner. Verizon will forever be a company I represent with pride and chose to support. Thank you."
