I am 52, a senior in college, and will be looking for a career shortly. My degree in Communication is general, but I have a background in other areas. Having experienced the corporate culture for a few years, I found it terribly disturbing because of my values. Do you have any advice on how to choose a career?

We recently hired an individual who graduated from a big name school, and he just completed his first project. I cannot believe that he does not know how to write. His work is filled with errors in grammar and structure, and the content is thin at best. I can give a new employee some guidance, but he requires more than I can provide. What do you suggest?

No matter what kind of project we are working on, sooner or later, he relates it to something about his college. We are all college grads, and we're not impressed with him or his college. We've tried to get the message across, but he doesn't get it. How do we deal with him?

I think I handled this right, but is it worth saying something to him?
