I will go with A here.

Few points
1. C has 'them, 'their' - very messy.
2. D and E alters intent of the sentence...so out.
3. A and B look good...however 'B' has this parallelism 'to open doors' 'to better jobs' - sounds weird.
4. So A 'may' be it by POE.

However, thought this 'may' (or should I say 'might') be useful!!

A is my choice.

Reasons for Elimination
1. B, C, & E are out due to poor parallel structure 'instill' not parallel with 'opening/giving'
2. D is messed up by itself. 'any job opening.... '

Hi bmwhype2,

I also thought of C first but the usage of 'Opening their doors' looks weired so i will opt for A.
