I'm a child of the Chicago suburbs...at least I spent my coming-of-age years here, from 7th grade through high school graduation. I planned to return in September '01 for a reunion: Rich Central High School, Class of l966. But the events of 9/11 sort of eclipsed my plans, along the the airline I was scheduled to take. We were fortunate boomers growing up in a community with great expectations for our future. Once I left for college I was virtually gone, although I've returned for family events and even a few business trips. (The tips I'll put here will be from those trips.)

For three summers after high school I rode the IC downtown to work in the Wrigley Building, and that was my introduction to "career-world." Lots of fond memories. No-nonsense Chicagoland turned out to be a good launching pad for my life.
