15 15 Thoughts from Qualcomm Employees I felt a bit overwhelmed as I was applying for jobs and getting very few responses. I completed a transition program prior to my separation from the military, but I still lacked the skills necessary to find a job. Through this program I was not only able to develop my technical skills, but also the professional skills needed to succeed in the corporate environment. After completing the program, I feel like I am not only capable of finding a good position within my industry, but I feel capable of finding the best job for me to work to my full potential. Qualcomm and the QCIP – Warriors program is an excellent blueprint for many other companies to follow. --Louis, Support Engineer Qualcomms support of programs like Day in a Chair and the Career Connections for Youth help raise awareness of the daily challenges faced by those with a disability. But more importantly, these programs show that individuals with disabilities can be productive members of the workforce. --Daniel, Staff Engineer
