Your views in `Fast track is the right track for new graduates’ (Leader, 9 June) are echoed strongly in my experience as a graduate new into engineering.

I am working on a major communications project, and 16 months into the job I am having significant trouble gaining the recognition and recompense my work deserves. Part of the reason is that our company structure is very flat, and a significant proportion of the staff are close to retirement.

So far I have managed only to move my job horizontally across functional boundaries in an interim effort to progress my career. But moving onwards and upwards seems impossible.

Thanks for your views – I feel vindicated in feeling the sense of frustration that you described.
