Getting started

My oldest daughter Rachael is trying to find her calling in life so to speak, and earlier this year had an interview with my boss, who told her she lacked the experience to do the job. This week she had an interview for sales and was told she was too young and did not have enough life experience. This time however, she convinced him to let her go through the training and prove herself. Ya know, how can a person get experience, if we don't give them an opportunity? The lesson here for the applicant is to not give up and for those doing the hiring, look beyond the resume and see the person.
Time will tell as far as Rachael and her career in sales goes, but I admire her guts to fight to get ahead. Something all of us should practice everyday.
