Hannah, more people are likely to fill out a lot of applications, and not complete the application process. Conversely, many more people network and make initial contact but don't follow up in reasonably and timely manner. So it seems more productive for coaches to encourage to swing the proverbial job search bat with both hands and not just one.

 @dbvickery Yeah. My son might have sacrificed  some of the grades for working, but not much. It is the sense of responsibility that matters. We underestimate our children's abilities more than we do our own.

 @newdaynewlesson Thanks for your comment. I feel stronger about parents teaching them as toddlers. With our sons, it is the only way they know.

Hey Anne, you're from Chicago? I live in Chicago too! Well, OK your story is exactly what it should produce. Responsibility, self-reliance, and a bigger picture. My son had an work incident that happened on Wednesday, and my wife and I asked do we need to be involved. His response was I'm 18 now, not a little boy anymore." That response is worth the invested time and effort.

@AliRichards15 I concur. You and I understand that we, and others, need to determine the terms of engagement. If you don't others who are competing will. Thanks for your valuable thoughts.

@susansilver That's great! I wish more people would take control of their careers by conducting brand inventory.

@Melissa Cooley Love that word "symbiotic," and the way you said it responds to the death of many relationships because the ROI wasn't immediate or focused on the person taking.

@dbvickery, glad you like it. I rarely use biz cards these days. There are other tools to be remembered by such as conversations and exchanging ideas. That is really your calling card.

I love the way that "failure" is a stepping stone here. To be intimate with success, you have embrace "no!" This was inspiring!

Someone has affection for old school Hip-Hop. Nice. Out of all, "The Lost Boy" has so much irony in the "...has checked out" comment. They just want to do their job, although, nothing wrong with it, you always wonder what world he or she is in.
