I just scanned through it.Didn't find much impressive.Mainly it revloves around the concept:Your job can move to any place in the world.Hence beware.Constantly update yourself and move up the 'chain'.

Actually when you want to salute anybody with the firstname ONLY, it is preferable to use add �ji�. When you want to salute anybody with firstname + lastname, no need to add �ji� with firstname.
