It is traditional to give graduates advice on careers and life when they graduate, but they need it more at the start of their senior year when they desperately hunt for jobs. Seniors in college are like canaries in the mineshaft, or lemmings on the march - whatever is hot is in. In 1999, they all wanted to become dot-com godzillionaires and retire when they are 30. Today they all want to run hedge funds and retire when they are 30. What they need is some perspective on how careers unfold and why they went to a liberal arts college in the first place.
