A Little Advice for New Graduates, Old Graduates, the Unemployed and the Rest of Us. by The Elephant's Child

From Mike Rowe, the Dirty Jobs guy, a little advice about work:

Stop looking for the “right career,” and start looking for a job. Forget about what you like. Focus on what’s available. Get yourself hired. Show up early. Stay late. Volunteer for the scut work. Become indispensable. You can always quit later, and be no worse off than you are today. But don’t waste another year looking for a career that doesn’t exist. And most of all, stop worrying about your happiness. Happiness does not come from a job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs.
