In today’s episode of The College Checklist Podcast, I had the pleasure of chatting with Ben Green, author of The Global Superstar. Ben provides valuable insights on what high school and college students can think about and do to prepare for a career in a field they are passionate about.
This episode is important because it reminds us of the “why” beyond getting into college. Being competitive in the global economy doesn’t happen by accident. While there are many to-do’s on the road to college admissions, we must look beyond getting in and be strategic regarding our careers.
Ben Green helps us do just that with some simple steps we can begin taking today and a few things to think about as we move beyond the high school halls.
