From Learning to Earning

Graduating from college is a wonderful accomplishment…but it is only a starting point.  With easily 30% to 40% of the US population holding a bachelors degree, don’t expect the world to stand up and take notice – you are unfortunately, just a college graduate.

I sometimes wonder if starting your career with a degree is a handicap – perhaps there is an naive and unrealistic expectation.  Without a degree, you are forced into something we all eventually learn; that is, you must prove yourself!

Your diploma won’t bring in new business, make a company more profitable, or create a new product or service…this requires work; real hard, dirty, painstaking, not always “dignified,” burning the late night oil work!

If you have earned your degree, congratulations, earning your keep is a lifelong endeavor.
