Now, while this doesn’t apply to PR (yet), I don’t like it one bit. I think it’s up to senior people in any field to keep the door open so the smartest and most resourceful young people find a way to get in (without having to go to an ATM first).

We’ve found some of our best young people from standout resumes that came in ‘over the transom’.
