I just got an email from PepsiCo saying they're hiring aggressively. This was in response to my Monster resume, so it's legit. I'm in IT, but they didn't mention IT. Looks like they're hiring for all kinds of positions in lots of locations.
I know some of us are looking for work or know someone who is, so I wanted to pass it on. Take a look: http://careers.pepsico.com/
I find this very encouraging, that a major corporation is doing some across-the-board hiring!
