    A Message to Garcia and Your Career

    By Jul 19,2018

    One of the most inspiring true stories I have ever read is A Message to Garcia, by Elbert Hubbard. It is a short essay that discusses the initiative of a soldier who is assigned a difficult mission of delivering a message and comes through, completing this very difficult task. In the essay, the soldier does not ask any questions, object to the assignment, nor request help; he simply gets the job done. The essay was first published in the March 1899 issue of Philistine magazine and soon thereafter was reprinted as a pamphlet and a book. In both World...

    Why Aren’t There More American Day Laborers, Doctors, Engineers and Textile Workers?

    Do Not Be Immobilized in Your Job Search

    By Jun 28,2018

    Several years ago, I was sitting in my office and the most amazing candidate came across my desk. The attorney had a degree in a hard science discipline from a school like CalTech or MIT (I believe it was physics), had gone to a good law school, and finished first in his class. Not only that, he was currently working at one of the top law firms in the world and was in a practice area that wasn’t just desirable at the time, it was white hot. His practice area was so in demand at this particular point in time
