Glenn graduated in 1991, no google, no iPhones, no www. Things have gotten much better, he started off writing software for fly by wire aircraft, moved into satellite & communications, worked in investments, tried his very best at startups and is still having a wonderful time. For the last few positions, he has had great team building experiences. There are certainly a great number of great people to hire but you have to work to find them, woe them and mentor them. When Glenn looks back every graduate he has hired has ended up at a great gig at a great company even if they started off small.
