Career Advice

2512994173_a987e82bf3_zIf 2015 is the year you’ll walk across the stage diploma in hand, you have to read this. And if you became a graduate years ago, you still have to read this.  Hey, even if you’re about to retire, you should read this and share it with others. That’s how good it is.

Business Insider recently published a slideshow of career advice from Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn’s billionaire founder. It’s called The 3 Secrets of Highly Successful Graduates and it’s all about feeling ready for the working world — because most soon-to-be graduates don’t feel like they can take on the real world. His advice is inspiring and dead on from, “That uncertainty you feel right now about your future — it won’t ever go away,” to “In an ever-changing world, managing your career is a LIFELONG PROCESS.”

Here are are just some of our favorite pieces of advice from the slideshow:

  • “Your best career has you pursuing worthy aspirations, using your assets, while navigating the market realities.”
  • “You’ll be surprised how valuable your existing skills and connections are to those who don’t have them.”
  • “If you’re looking for an opportunity, you’re really looking for a person.”
