Advice for the Degreeless
By Lancelot Larsen

A great American overachiever said once so profoundly, "Stuff happens." And so stuff does. Even if every child doesn't get left behind, there is no national plan to prevent teens from voluntarily or involuntarily abandoning academic endeavors right after high school or in the middle of college. According to the 2004 Census, only 27% of Americans over 25 hold bachelor degrees or higher.

New Job, New You
By Lancelot Larsen

On your first day at your new job, it is important to try to live up to the image you portrayed at the interview. Treat your first day like an interview. This will include wearing an outfit that makes you stellar and confident. Continue with the aim to make a good first impression around everyone in the office. Eat breakfast, mind your breath, teeth, and hygiene, and arrive early and smile brightly upon arrival. Keep your head up and make eye contact with everyone. Be courteous to all, including the receptionist and mailroom clerk. Remember their names and ask questions when necessary. Be proactive in discovering who's who around the office. Do not wait for your co-workers to get used to you occupying their office space. Immediately start establishing yourself as the asset you are to the company. Always be friendly and willing to get to know your co-workers and what their interests are. Make use of meal breaks to rendezvous with co-workers.
