A young woman visited our work today to chat with a few of us old fogies. She is a rising junior in college and planning to apply for positions in a year, and is visiting a few places to make connections and gather information.
So i was already impressed by this young woman's initiative. And as I chatted with her, and took in her colorfully tinted hair, nose ring, and marked obesity, I also became impressed by her composure and confidence. It's *hard* to be in "sales mode" but to do so while being a young woman with a very unconventional appearance - well, that's much more confidence than I had at that age!
After our chat, I walked this young woman back to the lobby where I chatted with her waiting boyfriend for a bit as well. A lot can happen in a year for young people; it will be interesting to see if she is interested enough to apply with us in a year.
