I'm 18 and thanks to you, I've beaten the odds!
Date: January 19, 2000

Thank you very much... I hope you find time to read this :)

I am barely 18 years old and I have fast tracked through school. I live in Toronto where there is a grade 13 and most people my age would still be in school. I am only remotely interested in spending another 4 years in a classroom building with debt in the form of an educational loan.

Needless to say it is less than easy to get a first job somewhere other than McD's (here anyway). I have been reading Ask The Headhunter for some time now. I have put your advice together and I am now working in a somewhat senior role with one of Canada's largest cable providers (specifically the Internet on cable department). Thanks to you, I am already making thousands more per year than the "average Canadian" and I enjoy what I do immensely.

I can't thank you enough for your advice. The odds of someone my age landing a job like this are literally infinitesimal.

Thank you very much! Best of luck to you in the future.

Shaun S.
