You’re not hired to be right. You’re hired to have a point of view.

Food. Movies. Vacation destinations. Human beings are hard-wired to have an opinion on everything. Good news is most major employers will hire you to do just that: have opinions. After all, there are auditoriums filled with hundreds students all learning the same things and fighting for the same jobs. So, having an opinion- or better yet a point of view- on your craft, field, or life isn’t just critical to separating yourself from the pack. It’s essential. And the sooner you can develop your point of view the better because it takes full immersion into your field of study to hone it effectively.
Job creation

A lot of jobs that exist now did not exist in the not-so-distant past.. And in the not-so-distant future, a lot of jobs that will exist then, do not exist now. In fact, HuffPost’s Daniel Tencer wrote that computer superpower Dell Inc. believes “85% of jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet.” While that sounds like a stretch to say the least, it’s still significant if even half-correct. So, what do you do? How do you future-proof against that technological upheaval or prepare for a job that doesn’t even exist right now? According to Dell, people should prepare for more of a freelanced-based gig economy.
