Congratulations, graduates, on your hard work over the last several years. By now, though, you’re surely feeling pressure about your next steps.
You may have debt, parents that made big sacrifices, or well-off families that expect you to live like them. You may feel pressure to take a job that promises status or mobility — and not to mention a paycheck. Harvard Business school grads, for instance, are now landing jobs with starting pay of over $160,000.
Even so, you’ll no doubt weigh ethical considerations as you make career choices. You may not want to work for a gun manufacturer or Big Pharma opioid peddler, for example.
Allow me to make one more suggestion: Don’t work for billionaires.
