My son just graduated from high school and will be entering college this Fall as a freshman. Since the prestigious university that he is attending is close to home he decided to take a class this summer to get a head start. The other day I dropped him off for class and was surprised to see so many other students clearly heading to and from classes on campus.
These are our future candidates (and hiring managers) and there are a lot of them spending their summer getting ahead. There is a lot of motivation out there and a lot of young people who put a ton of extra effort into their futures and careers. Worth keeping in mind.
