More than 10 years ago, I had a professor who told me, “Your education is supposed to make you think and be a problem-solver, not just fill a job title.” That was a game-changer for me.
As I’ve gotten older, the idea has been cemented for me: when it comes to careers, your education is just a starting point.
A STARTING POINT. Not the end goal.
Education gives you a lens with which to study the world around you. It allows you to consider ideas and problems, ask questions and think of solutions.
Education should never be a type of “shackle” that makes a person think they are tied to just one career type or path.
