Qualcomm, Manpower arrange jobs, scholarships for vets

Qualcomm Inc. and Manpower San Diego will award 20 post-9/11 military veterans with scholarships to Manpower’s training and job placement program.

The scholarships present opportunities for veterans with entry-level information technology experience to work at Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM).

The six-month temporary-to-permanent job assignments are part of Manpower’s WorkPath Training Division, which provides extra skills training and general business essentials for persons seeking to enter or re-enter the work force.

San Diego is home to more veterans than any other region of the country, and many face job readiness hurdles when transitioning into private-sector employment.

“With so many of the fine men and women serving our country in this military town, we are honored as one of the largest employers in the region to support their return to civilian life,” said Dan Sullivan, executive vice president of human resources at Qualcomm.

Positions include IT engineer/associate, IT storage engineer (entry-level and associate), IT network engineer and IT manager, among others.

“Placing 20 vets at Qualcomm, one of San Diego’s most exciting and in-demand employers, presents outstanding possibilities for their future,” said Phil Blair, chief executive officer of Manpower.
