The First Job

"We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started."

Henry Ward Beecher
19th century American politician

Memo to Management:  Remember this when considering an otherwise qualified young person who only lacks in experience.

You too once had to find your first job.

    Thank you Bill, I needed that.

  2. and whats amazing is the people doing the hiring will tell you straight up that they like you and think you'd be good but need someone with experience.
