This is certain to be the longest summer ever for students around the nation

The mismatch between college and profession

~45% of college students graduate underemployed (working in jobs that don’t actually require a bachelor’s degree). Executives and managers at companies consistently report that college students lack the skills needed to excel in the workplace.

Our options to engage are more plentiful than ever before

My social media journey

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with social media ever since I first signed up for Facebook a little over a decade ago (I got my account in 2009–8th grade).

I was never good at school. Even today, when I open up to friends about never being an academically successful student, they are often surprised.

We are more connected than ever before

You can access the course materials for practically every major at MIT online.

The matrix has plenty of life lessons — questions chief amongst them.

And it’s not immediately intuitive. Because we’ve spent our whole lives focusing on answers — without ever questioning why. Our lives are built around getting the “right” answer.

We built things — and it was a good time.

At LifeSchool, we have a singular belief about passion:

“Passions aren’t found — they’re built”

The future belongs to those who build it. In the era of code-free tools and technology, anyone can be a builder. All you need is a little bit of time, a team, and an idea that you care about bringing to life.

We often procrastinate because we’re nervous, anxious, scared, or all of the above.

Procrastination is an inherently emotional response. Procrastination does have its benefits — particularly when it comes to creativity.

If it feels like you’re drowning, you’re not alone

There are a lot of different factors to consider for your first job after college.

  • Location
  • Company
  • Passion
  • Salary
  • Mentorship
  • Hobbies
  • Culture

There are so many various factors to consider that it can start to become overwhelming. How do you find the perfect job with the perfect people in the perfect city with the perfect opportunities that’s just right for you?

The world is your oyster

One of the hardest things for people to do is to pick a location for their work. It’s easy to get sucked into a big city, because that’s where most of the jobs are (simple math — more people = more opportunity).
