You can learn a lot in your years of school, including how to submit yourself to someone higher up the corporate ladder. The problem here is that the odds of you securing yourself a good job in the workforce is getting more out of reach. It is extremely difficult to live like your parents did, by getting a good degree and applying for a solid paying job. Any millennial today will know this, and has most likely taken the necessary steps to break the trend.
In today's world, you are better off re-educating and investing in yourself. That calculus class or chemistry lab will only help you if you want to get a job. Instead, you need to teach yourself these 3 skills:
Most people are like sheep. They do as they are told, shed their wool, and start over the next day just as they started the previous. To be successful, you need to become the shepherd. When you are on top, you have control of your destiny and of money.
This includes many things. Some of the most important ones include being punctual to show you mean business, using proper english to show your level of sophistication, and even having a firm handshake (the way you shake someones hand can tell a lot about who you are as a business man or woman).
Making and enacting a solid plan of action for precisely what you want to accomplish each day is essential. If you don't know what you need to do in order to reach your goals, then how can you expect to ever get there?
If you apply these skills, you will see a change in your outlook on life and you'll put yourself on the starting line to a successful future. Only self-education and experience can correctly teach you this jumpstart skill set.
