Prudential

Prudential Financial, Inc. is a financial services leader that provides customers with a variety of products and services, including life insurance, annuities, retirement-related services, mutual funds and investment management. A WOS partner since 2005, Prudential utilizes the OnDemand and TAP services and places WOS consultants in Customer Service, Information Technology, Project Management, and Accounting/Finance positions.

Prudential Financial, Inc., the 140-year old financial services company headquartered Newark, NJ, is proud of the accolades it has received for its commitment to diversity and a supportive workplace. Recognition has ranged from Diversity Inc’s “Top 50 Companies for Diversity” (2014 and 13 prior years) to Military Times’s “Best for Vets Employer” (2014 and 4 prior years). 

One of the ways that Prudential has attained this success is by partnering with Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS). It’s a relationship that stretches back over 10 years, and has seen over 100 people, both underserved young adults and veterans, graduate into full-time, on-staff roles at Prudential. Several have already been promoted into larger roles, while others have helped bring additional underserved young adults and veterans to Prudential, in some cases through WOS programs, in other cases as direct hires to Prudential.

While many have found success as project managers, others are contributing to Prudential as systems analysts, IT Security specialists, network engineers, internal operations consultants, QA testers, business continuity specialists, and IT Architecture team members. Some of these roles are time-proven WOS career paths, while others are first-time specialties.
