This is a good, very short post about a linked article providing “food for thought” about majors and careers. . .there’s even a little in there to make you think hard about what university you choose to attend. A few points I’d like to make before you go read them, though:
- I realize the blog post is geared toward parents of college-bound students, and that none of my audience is in that particular situation. However, read both the blog and the linked article–they’re worth it
- Before you link out to read the longer article it points to, read the last paragraph of the blog and digest it as suggesting “soft skills” (i.e. critical thinking, written and verbal communication etc.) are very important and things you can work toward at any point in your educational career.
- The linked article focuses on bachelor’s degree holders–this presupposes that you won’t go to graduate school. You all know I like to encourage graduate school as a way to increase your knowledge-base, improve your hiring potential and increase your earning possibilities
That should cover it–happy reading!
