CAREERS ADVICE TO HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

A) YOU are in charge.
50 years ago a career was like getting on a train. You were an accountant or a plumber and you'd be in this profession for 40 years. It was all very predictable and the tracks were fixed. In the 1970's it was like you were in a bus. During your working life you might have to transfer from bus to bus but there were established routes and roads. Today, having a career is like being in an all-purpose terrain vehicle and there are no roads.
