Take this first step and good things will come
To the editor:
Guest columnist Ibrahim Hirsi’s resume (“Recent college graduates step into the abyss,” Sun Thisweek May 25) indicates that many of his articles have been published by various newspapers in which he describes all the things that go wrong when people do not have decent jobs and salaries.
To Hirsi I say: “Welcome to the real world.” As a college graduate in 1948 and a ton of high level experience in World War II and civilian life I took tests which indicated my preeminence in several different fields. Unfortunately, no jobs, so I took one that paid very little but gave me a chance to show that I could add to any employer’s bottom line.
It didn’t take long for employers to recognize that I was money in the bank so my compensation skyrocketed.
Take that first little step and good things will come.
