I worked hard on crafting a resume and then my mom drove me to the offices of the two firms. I nervously walked in, unannounced, and asked to meet the owners. Suprisingly, in both cases I was granted an audience, and in both cases I was offered a position for summer employment.
For me, it started with my mom. Really you could say it started with a car. Any car. I was 15 years old, and I wanted to be sure I had a car to drive when I turned 16.
