Bill Gates Gave Career Advice To College Grads

It’s a widely known thing that people want to take advice from the ones who have tasted success in their lives. And who would be better than the world’s richest man when it comes to finding some enlightenment regarding the career aspect.

On Monday, Bill Gates tweeted some advice to new college graduates.

“New college grads often ask me for career advice,” he starts out. So, at the risk of sounding like the guy in the movie The Graduate who pulls the Dustin Hoffman character aside to offer him a single word of career advice–“Plastics!”–Gates launches in. In just under 300 words, he provides thought-provoking comments on what he would do if he were graduating today and what he wishes he’d known back then.
