Excellent perspective on the college application process.
The obsession with elite colleges distorts reality, hurts kids and perverts education.

This man started as a history grad from Berkeley and became a super-successful serial entrepreneur and investor in high tech -- with no formal education in either the STEM fields or business.

How did he transform himself?  Hear the story of John Medved, founder and CEO of +OurCrowd , the leading equity crowd funding platform.

Premeds, you really need to understand the factors that lead to rejection.
If you were rejected by the med schools you applied to, you probably made at least one of these 7 fatal mistakes. Planning to reapply? Check out this list.

Well-paying jobs in tech for non-techies

Interesting article from the +Wall Street Journal .

As an aside my developer son two days ago mentioned that the SAAS tech company he works for has empty sales positions that it is struggling to fill.
Companies selling technology and other services to corporate customers are struggling to fill potentially lucrative sales jobs. Employers say part of the problem is that young workers perceive sales as risky and defined by cutthroat competition.
