While we're at it, let's make it clear to employers that we are worth more than $10.00 @hr with a Bachelors Degree. I can't tell you how many employers wanted a college degree, but offered little in wages or benefits. I had a Raytheon recruiter laugh at me because I had a Secret clearance. They wanted a Top Secret clearance, which I could have had if I were in a position to need one, but I wasn't. Laughing at a vet with a degree, IT experience, logistics/maintenance background and willingness to learn isn't my idea of good relations with vets. I work for a govt agency now, in a finance-related job that I was able to rapidly learn, given the opportunity.

You want to hire vets? Show me more than a token job. Let me show you what I can do for you.
