Once we step off of the campus into the reality of life there is an expectation from society that we comprehend a fair value of exchange.

If you learn to cultivate good habits you will find yourself making progress on autopilot.
The Bottom Line is that you must learn to be Resilient!

Learning how to gain value at every career stage will enable you to acquire identity capital which will help you to validate to others as you do something that will add value to who you are. In other words you must learn how to be resilient more so today than at any other time in our nation’s history.
Quite frankly in the digital age, combined with the pressures of a global economy there is a chance that job security may be disappearing. This could become a harsh truth for many unskilled, skilled, and college educated job seekers in the future.
