This is good advice for college students. Sadly, the value of a B.A. or B.S. has been on the decline ever since I got my degree in the mid 2000s. Even a master’s degree can’t save you anymore. Some of us figured out early on that we’d never get a job with a degree by itself, so we worked part-time positions, grabbed up unpaid internships, and taught ourselves basic layout and web design. The people who just went to class and then “relaxed?” They had a hard awakening.
