2022 is Here and Some Timeless Lessons

Years ago, when the PC in offices came into use there was a Bootcamp for top executives that taught them how to use email and other simple features provided by Microsoft.

Parents who know every test and begin vocabulary prep at birth or even sooner. There is a race to the finish, but we all don’t have the same starting point. So, as 2022 rolls in, I’ve made a commitment to offering advice to students on a regular basis. Each Sunday, I will post a comment to help those who want a shot at a really good job. It starts early, so if you are still in college without the protective umbrella of wealthy and well-connected parents stay tuned.
