"I dropped out sophomore year, got my CDL, I saw the scam I was in."

"That’s why I tell ppl to intern while in school. Every summer you should be interning at a company within your desired career field. I had recruiters."

@rkowenz said:

"Fellow econ grad. Shotgun that resume everywhere and make a great LinkedIn. Look for any job with "analyst" in the title or legal/compliance positions."
