Good Advice for Breaking into Foundation Work?

What meaningful (and not totally pessemistic) advice ought one offer to young professionals seeking foundation grantmaking work?

I encourage Epiphanies followers to read Your Invitations in the Mail! and post responses!

I am referring to the latest post at the New Voices Of Philanthropy blog. Guest writer and sometime EPIP participant Allyson Reaves (already an accomplished alum of the CUNY Philanthropy Fellowship) offers a hilarious - but seriously important - perspective on the challenges of carving out career paths in philanthropy.

P.S. I know for sure that I wasn't the "Mr. Advancemeplease" to whom Allyson refers!
