Congratulations. After four years of classes, midterms, finals, projects, reports, stress, growth, and everything else higher learning brings with it, the time is here. You’ve graduated.
So now what?
All of you have degrees in hand, and the lucky among you have already secured your first jobs. But while the degree may have helped you get the job, success within the position is totally up to you from here on out. This is no longer a classroom, it’s a real-live business that is now depending on you to thrive and help it do the same. And if you don’t, there’s no extra credit – just the unemployment line. I know, I’ve been there. So here’s what I’ve learned in the 10 years since my own graduation to get you off on the right foot. Congratulations, and good luck.
