I just had a telephone call that made my day: my step-daughter Julie graduated last spring with an accounting degree and is now working on her CPA. She had applied, along with about 70 other applicants, for a job slot with a good accounting firm in San Diego. She got the job!
When Julie was only 15, she got a part time job after school at a local doctor's office. Within a few months, she was doing their billing and some book keeping for them. She has always been very hard working and responsible, so her new employers made a very, very good decision. She is also a Mom of two great kids.
