“GOOD MANNERS WILL OPEN DOORS THAT THE BEST EDUCATION CANNOT.”

Clarence Thomas Supreme Court Justice

DON’T ENTER THE “REAL WORLD” WITHOUT PREPARATION. GOOD MANNERS
ARE IMPORTANT THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE.
YOUR GPA IS EXCEPTIONAL. YOU KNOW WHAT FIELD YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK IN. DON’T ALLOW SOMEONE WITH EQUAL OR LESS QUALIFICATION GET THE JOB OR INTERNSHIP BECAUSE HE/SHE IS MORE POLISHED AND WELL MANNERED THAN YOU. AS OBTAINING EMPLOYMENT BECOMES MORE AND MORE COMPETITIVE, GOOD MANNERS MAY BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT.
