1 - Finding a Place
"On a spring day in 1966, I decided to visit Northern Electric and it’s new R&D campus. Approaching the front desk, without an appointment, and carrying my signature black 36x24 inch designer portfolio case, I asked the front desk attendant if I could see someone from personnel. Although I was offered an application form, I told the very nice woman that I didn’t fill out application forms, and I wasn’t there for a job; I was there to interview the company for future reference. Somewhat puzzled she called the personnel office and asked me to take a seat. In a few short minutes I met my first Northern executive, and my incredible journey in the quest for personal fulfillment began."
