Advice on how to be good at business in the real world
The Scribe
Three letters symbolize one of the most powerful terms in all of business: CEO. For some business majors, it's the ultimate dream. Those letters symbolize more than a title. They symbolize a work ethic and a path less travelled. But in order to get to that destination, one must be able to navigate the route.

Reid Hoffman started his professional life with the intention of becoming an academic.

Your attitude at work is everything
LinkedIn
Redefine your job at work, change the way people perceive you — and you can become limitless. There are many examples of people "giving themselves a promotion" at work: There's the salesperson who becomes an expert consultant and whose customers come to him for help — driving sales through the roof. No matter what your job title is, you can get creative, choose to see your role differently, take on new tasks, and make a huge positive impression on customers, prospects, colleagues, and bosses.

My single best job search tip
Business Insider
The consistently best bit of advice I've ever given, that has come back to me over, and over, and over again, is this: When it gets to that part of the interview with your future boss where they ask, "well, do you have any questions for me?", say yes, and ask: "How do I help you get a gold star on your review next year?"
