Most of those you seem to be indicating did win jobs at young ages. . .WITH

Larry Combs - New Orleans
Harold Wright - Dallas Symphony (at the time a very small orchestra)
Burt Hara - Alabama Symphony
Ricardo Morales - Florida Symphony
Bill Hudgins - Charleston Symphony
Richie Hawley - Charleston Symphony
Dan McKelway - Grand Rapids Symphony
Stanley Drucker - Indianapolis Symphony (again, not what it is today)
Tom Martin - Alabama Symphony
Diana Haskell - Buffalo Symphony
Peter Hadcock - Buffalo Symphony
Richard Peck - San Diego Symphony
Mark Nuccio - Savannah, Florida Orchestra, and Denver

Of course there are exceptions, there always are. Did your student take any of
the auditions held in the past year? If she did and was a finalist, that
should have been on the resume. Making audition finals does mean something to
orchestra commitees. Winning a solo competition they have never heard of (only
clarinet players will know about ICS) means zero, trust me.
