Outlook brighter for upcoming grads who think "outside the box"

<p>In today's Christian Science Monitor <a href="http://www.christiansciencemonitor.com/2005/0425/p13s02-wmgn.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.christiansciencemonitor.com/2005/0425/p13s02-wmgn.html&lt;/a> there's a pretty upbeat article by Clayton Collins, some of you might find interesting. It's got it's share of facts and figures, but also some real people stories.
Plenty of college students load up their undergraduate years with episodes of self-discovery, tweaking life goals in response...

See what you think. :)</p>

<p>Blumini - Thank you for this excellent article. I have two sons in college that are mulling over different career options and this article has certainly provided food for thought. Thanks again for posting it!</p>

<p>Good article, Blumini. I hope that students who choose their educational and career goals based on the next "hot market" will read it. I've heard that engineering majors are being sought after on Wall Street because of their analytical skills. It seems like though the elite colleges are looking for the "quirky" or lop-sided student, employers are looking for the more well-rounded and adaptable employee.</p>

<p>Your welcome - glad you found it worth reading. Agreed - it just goes to show how important it is to really think about what the purpose of a good education is. ;)</p>
