Seth, a bright, ambitious 23-year-old, recently resigned from the human resources department of a large international company. His employer was understandably chagrined. Seth had joined the company immediately after graduating college where he had been a dean's list student and completed a four-year program in just three years.
Seth is a very competent and personable young man. During his time at the company he performed extremely well. He worked on a variety of corporate projects and stood out as a diamond in the rough, an employee with a great deal of management potential—just the type of person the company wanted to keep.
