Christine Crandell Hosts Market Movers BrightTALK Video Segment: American Support and Five9 on Jobs for Vets & Spouses

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2015) - Christine Crandell, host of BrightTALK video series Market Movers, connects with American Support CEO Matt Zemon and Five9's EVP of Sales & Business Development, Dan Burkland, to look at how American Support's innovative partnership with the cloud contact center provider is solving a social crisis: helping highly skilled veterans and underemployed military spouses find jobs. 

Veterans can have a tough transition from military to civilian employment and military spouses face underemployment so frequently that the circumstance has developed into a broad social challenge calling for smart innovative solutions.

Christine Crandell, a recognized thought leader in B2B marketing, will spotlight an inventive solution with opportunities at cloud-based call centers in the August 13th segment of her Market Movers video series hosted on the BrightTALK webinar and video platform. 

Crandell spoke with Matt Zemon and Dan Burkland to find out more about how they are working together to bring military spouses and veterans employment opportunities in contact centers. 

"Technology enables innovative solutions to seemingly impossible social crises," said Dallas Jessup, Content Marketing Manager at BrightTALK. "We applaud Christine for leveraging the Market Movers audience to spread the word about American Support's solution for veterans and military spouses."

"The call center space is a perfect job for a military spouse or veteran," said Zemon. "We saw a chance to help this community of highly skilled people that needed both flexibility and an opportunity to use their transferable skills."

"What was appealing to us about working with American Support was the ability to make a difference for an over-skilled but under-served employment sector that were not being hired at the rate they should be," said Burkland. "With the power of the Five9 cloud contact center software, we are able to help companies employ valuable and skilled workers wherever they are located in a virtual contact center. With an internet connection and a headset, agents can simply log in and take calls from anywhere and their supervisors can monitor and assist them from anywhere as well."
