Service, Teamwork and Leadership are at the core of the U.S. Military and they are also a part of what we do at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. We are certain that U.S. Military veterans can help us fulfill Our Promise to serve with excellence and dedication, provide peace of mind for those who depend on us, and to enrich the lives and health of our members and the communities we serve.

If you work at Horizon BCBSNJ, you will have an opportunity to work with some of the best professionals in the industry, be a part of a team that is changing the face of health care in New Jersey, gain new skills and experiences, and work in a role that will allow you to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

We recognize the contributions of our U.S. Military and their families, and believe there is no better way to show our appreciation than to provide U.S. Veterans and Military spouses with an opportunity to work with us!

Workforce Opportunity Services (WOS)
Horizon BCBSNJ collaborates with the Workforce Opportunity Services job training program in Newark, which is a work-study program that successfully helps integrate veterans into the corporate workforce. During the training period, veterans attend classes at a local university and work part-time at a sponsoring corporation, such as Horizon BCBSNJ. Two nights a week, veterans meet with experienced faculty to learn critical corporate skills in a specific area (Information Technology, Business Operations, etc.), as well as written/verbal communication, project management and other key tools valued by successful companies.

If you served in the military during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars (September 11, 2001 and forward), were honorably discharged, and have a high school diploma or equivalent, you can apply for the WOS/VETalent program at www.wforce.org.
