A year ago, Laura Newcombe, an 11th grader at La Cañada High School, entered the job market for the first time. She submitted her first job application and was interviewed, but was not hired. Her second application and interview landed her a job at Tom's Toy Store in Montrose. "I remember how scary and intimidating the interview was," Newcombe said. "I am shy and was very nervous. I realized I needed to overcome my shyness and improve my interview skills. I also wanted to become a better employee, so I took the ROP's retail marketing class.

Difficult moments are the most difficult to find a laugh in, but if you can manage it, it feels like a ton of bricks have magically disappeared from your shoulders.

Good manners are cost effective life skills that increase employee morale and a company's bottom line. Good manners create poise and confidence for you, honor, respect, and consideration for others. It is no wonder that it is a consideration when a company is hiring new employees or considering an employee for a promotion. Follow-Up Call: After sending resumes or introductory letters, follow up with phone calls to each company. Get the name of the person who is hiring. This may be the hiring manager, whose name may be found on the website of the company or from the receptionist.

I jumped into this position some time in early February, the exact week when legendary La Cañada water polo coach Larry Naeve retired. Most of my first few months were like that: a lot going on and I had no idea what the implications were. The next week, LCHS student Katie Hansen won the Junior World Championships in luge. Then Renaissance Academy dominated in CIF and went to the State Championships. It could have been easier. There have been the athletes and coaches that have been an absolute pleasure, from Art Lopez and Shelly Orlandini to Joel Bryant and Courtney McCutchan.

What do you have planned for this weekend? Could I suggest a family activity that would interest and benefit the whole family? It is on a par, as far as expenses go, with any other activity in the area, including dinner and a movie or a local sporting event. My wife and I have lived in La Cañada for the past 13 years. We love Southern California and are especially fond of this community. I am a violist and my wife Stacy is a violinist. We both play in the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
