int (e^-x)/(x)dx from 0 to infinity

Determine if integral is convergent or divergent

2. The attempt at a solution

I assume because the bottom limit is 0 and there is an x in the bottom of the integral that this is going to be divergent but I still have to use the comparison theorem. I'm trying to find a function less then (e^-x)/(x) that also diverges to show that (e^-x)/(x) will diverge but I'm drawing a blank. I've tried messing around with 1/x^2 or just e^-x but both of those are still larger then the original (e^-x)/(x). Any suggestions?
