Call of Duty®: Black Ops 4
We believe veterans bring incredible value to our company and society.
Activision Believes in Veterans
Veterans are not just patriots; they are assets to our economy and society. In 2009, Activision Blizzard founded the Call of Duty Endowment (the Endowment), a non-profit dedicated to finding, funding and growing the most efficient and effective job placement services for veterans. To date, the Endowment has funded the placement of over 47,000 veterans into high-quality careers at less than 1/6 the cost of federal government efforts. In 2013, our veteran employees founded ActiVets, an affinity group of Activision veterans who strengthen their bonds, help support each other's success and assist Activision in making more meaningful contributions to the Veteran community.
We also hire veterans ourselves because we’d like to see more of you in our industry. While we're known for our world-class franchises and groundbreaking entertainment, it’s the brilliance and passion of our teams that bring our ideas to life. We deeply value the distinctive skills and experience military veterans bring to Activision, and we're also pretty sure you will do an excellent job with any challenge we throw at you. Our experience has found that veterans embrace our core values and possess the passion, results-orientation, and accountability it takes to be ALL IN. To help you find your footing, we’ve created this Veteran Hiring Guide to be your insider view into our company and provide you a leg up in breaking into our world. In this guide, you’ll learn more about who we are, what we do, and how to join our team.
Veterans Day of Service
On Veterans Day 2014, Activision launched its first annual Veterans Day of Service. Hundreds of Activision employees loaded up on buses and traveled to work sites around the Greater Los Angeles and Minneapolis areas to support local veteran organizations. Fast forward to 2017, over 850 employees from across each of our independent game development studios and divisions volunteered their time and came together in service of 22 veteran organizations across 25 project sites in the US and UK.
From painting to landscaping, to preparing meal packs or sorting warehouses of donated food for homeless veterans, our service projects are designed to meet the outstanding needs of those local organizations. In 2018, we coordinated a special Veterans Day of Service for our summer interns to give them a sense of our commitment to service and what the veteran community means to us. The day of service is our way of directly showing support for veterans and creating a sense of community with our teams.
