RadioShack encounters serious static
Commentary: CEO's exit raises questions about direction.
Chairman and CEO, Julian Day, will step down in May.

Selecting the companies you want to work for is harder than you think.  It may not be the obvious list when you take into consideration geography, organizational structure, and success of the retailer, growth plans and growth opportunities for your own career.  Do some research on each company and open your mind to the small companies.  They have just as many opportunities as the rest.  They're harder to get in and communicate with, but if it's done right, you may be surprised.  One executive years ago sent a letter to a company president who didn't have an LP program and made some bold commitments.  He went on to build a very successful LP program there.  Be aggressive!

Good luck
Gus Downing
