This illustration describes Adam Shepard’s search for a well paying job. He spent countless hours on the streets of Charleston, South Carolina looking talking to employers about potential job openings. Generally, he had little success; one day he listened to a man named Phil Coleman that had a sure fire way to land a good job. One must be assertive and make the employer feel like it would be a mistake not to hire you, and if one employer turns you down there are many other opportunities out there. This was the message that helped Adam Shepard successfully find a job.
