Stories Not Regrets
I want my daughter to graduate college with stories, not regrets.
I want her to work hard. Make lifelong friends. Seize opportunities. Get a clear sense of the type of work she loves and graduate with plenty of offers to do it.
Getting great grades in college is important, but grades are only part of the equation. I’ve taught interviewing at colleges for years and had opportunities to talk to recruiters. They tell me things like “The guy was smart enough but I need someone who can also talk to clients.”
People skills are a big part of success in work and in life and they are as learnable as history & math.
