Greetings Class of 2014.
Congratulations on all of your hard work!
I am sure that the past few years have been sprinkled with both victories and setbacks.
Today, I would like to discuss with you the importance of being able to rock your strengths, leverage your weaknesses, and successfully pivot through obstacles.
You need to know that a majority of your future employers will care very little about where you went to school or your GPA. They want to know how hiring you will benefit them in the long run.
The pecking order of this fine institution will matter very little once you walk across the stage today. Old friends are great but, it is important to open up your networking possibilities. Solid business and social contacts can make all the difference in your career.
There is a world out there waiting for you to make a mark on it.
