52025728All right, next question…

No.3 It is a tough economy out there! Good luck finding a job…


Thank you professor, you couldn’t have said it better!

No.4 You are leaving residence. You might need to move back in with your parents.

No. 12 It’s great that you got your undergraduate degree, but It’s not what you know…It’s who you know!

No. 13 That job does not pay well.
