Regarding Gina Barreca’s commentary published on Sept. 4th: The call to eliminate passion as a foundation for a satisfying career seems wrongheaded and the source of a lot of social dysfunction because people will not find their careers rewarding beyond the paycheck. The real issue is that people have a much harder time getting work experience these days. As they are maturing their thinking about convictions and passions, they lack the opportunity for work experience to translate passions into the best career options. More effectively getting you people to experience work is what we need, not to denigrate the need for passion in your work life.
