Veterans Day

So, how are we doing around here? Have H-P, Stanford, VMware, and the other big corporations in our back yard been hiring any veterans? Any disabled veterans? How about PAUSD?

HP just laid off 10,000 people. Intel rarely hires people without graduate degrees. Stanford ditto, unless it is in maintenance or something not requiring one. Don't know about the others, but a lot of high tech companies want graduate degrees. Few veterans have them, unless they were officers.
