For the most part, we as young adults need all the motivation and confidence we can get to start the tedious task of hunting for jobs. But Dr. Seuss advice can only take us so far.
“You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes, you can steer yourself any direction you choose.” If you Google, “Advice for College Graduates” or “Quotes for College Graduates,” you’ll more than likely see this quote from Dr. Seuss. His book, Oh! The Places You’ll Go, is a classic book to give to high school and college graduates. As a matter of fact, I received this book as a gift when I graduated from high school. In every aspect, it is motivational, quirky, and chock-full of advice. That’s why it makes such a perfect grad gift. However, is it all that college grads need to hear to be prepared to enter the real world? My answer is “no.”
