Beware. Your degree is not a proxy for your ability to do any job. The
world only cares about — and pays off on — what you can do with what
you know (and it doesn’t care how you learned it). And in an age when
innovation is increasingly a group endeavor, it also cares about a lot
of soft skills — leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability and
loving to learn and re-learn. This will be true no matter where you go
to work.Thomas Friedman
