So you’re off to college, finally. Congratulations! Nice to feel grownup (at least almost), eh?
So what advice can I give you? Well, I’ll leave most of the hard stuff to your dad. That’s really his job, and besides, he’s far wiser than me.
HOWEVER, I will try to impart to you some advice that EVERY American college kid should take seriously, but most ignore to their peril:
And that advice is: LEARN TO WRITE PROPERLY.
And business is ALL about expressing ideas.
Trust me. Once you land your first job and you’re the only junior on the floor who can write properly, you’ll be the ONLY junior on the floor who is irreplaceable.
And being “irreplaceable” is the name of the game in this world.
