  24. “I don’t know if we’re going to take existing jobs and expand their duties or if we’ll create new jobs, but it’s going to change our workforce. In the past, if you had a high school education and could learn some technical skills, that was enough to work for us. But now we want an Associate’s degree or equivalent military experience – and that will be the minimum hiring requirement starting this year.”Larry Fuller, director of human resourcesCenterPoint Energy, Houston, Texasinterviewed Feb. 5, 2010, for Working Texas Style book
  25. “A lot of students make the mistake of not making mistakes.Or they don’t take hard classes, that’s a mistake. Get out there and learn. You’ll probably make mistakes along the way.

  34. “Years ago we hired people from the neck down. We wanted strong backs. Now we hire people from the neck up. Only a few years ago we hired people and gave them a shovel and a pipe wrench and told them these were the tools that would make them successful. Now we hire people and give them a volt meter and a computer and tell them these are the tools that will make them successful. It’s a different industry now.”Greg Yoxsimer, human resources partner,Chevron Oil & Gas, Midland, TexasInterviewed Sept. 23, 2009, for Working Texas Style book

  36. “This is the topic companies in Texas are talking about. Knowledge transfer is about getting people in an organization who know how things really get done and getting them together to simply talk about that with younger workers. It sounds simple, but it’s hard to do in most organizations. You’re paid to complete a task, not to communicate habits to co-workers. ”Wendy Boswell, management professor and directorof the Center for Human Resource Management atTexas A&M Universityinterviewed Dec. 8, 2009, for Working Texas Style book
