"Schwab made me feel like I was finally at a workplace that would accept me for who I wanted to be."
Russell Simmons, Chief Warrant Officer Two, Army Reserves, Schwab Regional Manager for Schwab Private Client Investment Advisory, Denver
Schwab believes that veterans represent some of the very best talent in the country, and we are proud to be an employer of choice for many who have served and those who continue to serve. With many in the military increasingly moving on to new challenges, Schwab remains dedicated to an ongoing relationship with this community of America's heroes.

In 2017, Schwab was inducted to the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP), a program of the Department of Defense that recruits, hires, promotes and retains military spouses in portable careers. MSEP connects military spouses with partner employers worldwide, and gives Schwab priority access to a unique and talented group of professionals who are skilled, diverse, and motivated with a strong work ethic.
“I get satisfaction out of what I’m doing every day. I feel accomplished when I go home. And I feel like I’ve done something that mattered.”
Susan Williams, Team Manager, Operations
"Finding this role at Schwab through the Military Spouses Employment Partnership means a lot to me. I get to continue to grow my career with my husband's new station."
Latrice Langhorne, Senior Specialist, Operations
With many in the military increasingly moving on to new challenges, Charles Schwab remains dedicated to providing opportunities that support you in applying your unique skills and experience, as well as the training needed to ensure a smooth transition and continued professional growth.
“Schwab’s culture is collaborative, it’s always thinking about the other person on the team, it’s always thinking about Through Clients’ Eyes.”
"One of the reasons I chose Schwab is because of the military benefits. The firm offers differential pay for those in the military who get called to serve. That was a huge benefit for me and my family when I was called up this year."
"Schwab has a Military Veterans Network (MVN) that allows military service members to network and provide each other with important information, as well as share our experience of being in the military and working for Schwab...It made the transition into my corporate career go smoothly"
"When I found Charles Schwab, it felt like the stars aligned. They understood and appreciated my background in the military and were more than willing to bring me on and train me. The timing was right and it ended up being a great fit for my family as well."
"They took my military background and said it equaled a four-year degree in their eyes."
Schwab continues to be recognized for its emphasis on recruiting and training military veterans who are joining or rejoining the workforce and for delivering a work environment, policies, and programs that foster meaningful career opportunities for veterans.
