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.... '

A. parallel structure. may instill....and....open
B. not parallel. might instill ...and ...to open
C. not too sure about the exact syntax on why this is wrong but their and them sound awkward
can anyone tell me exactly why this is wrong?
D. incomplete sentence.
E. not parallel. may open.and...giving

Hi bmwhype2,

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