Blue bias: Dominguez urging more fellow Ateneans to join Duterte administration

 

Anyone up for the challenge?

If he had his way, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III wants more Blue Eagles as civil servants with him. The Cabinet man posed a challenge to fresh graduates of the Ateneo Graduate School of Business to fulfill the “men for others” principle of their beloved school by joining the government.

In fact, Dominguez is calling them as “servant-leaders” who will work to address poverty unemployment.

“I challenge all of you to seek not the comfort of air-conditioned offices early in your careers. Those offices dull the conscience and blunt your skills. Instead, you who are young and bright-eyed and full of idealism must go out to communities that are cluttered, disillusioned and disheartened,” Dominguez said in a speech read for him by Finance Undersecretary Karl Kendrick Chua.

While taking a desk job would be the easy choice, Dominguez said their expertise would spell bigger leaps for society.

“Early in your careers, it should be easy to be bolder. Take risks. Deal with failure. Profit from the lessons of starting up businesses. All the learning will be profitable for you later in life. There is no substitute for getting your feet wet to grasp how things work in our society,” Dominguez said.

How inspiring!
