President Obama spoke to the 2011 graduating class of Booker T. Washington in Memphis. While the speech was encouraging to students, there were also some pearls of wisdom for individuals in the job market. Below is an excerpt:
”Because we live in a new world now. Used to be that you didn’t have to have an education. If you were willing to work hard, you could go to a factory somewhere and get a job. Those times are passed. Believe it or not, when you go out there looking for a job, you’re not just competing against people in Nashville or Atlanta. You’re competing against young people in Beijing and Mumbai. That’s some tough competition. Those kids are hungry. They’re working hard. And you’ll need to be prepared for it.
And as a country, we need all of our young people to be ready. We can’t just have some young people successful. We’ve got to have every young person contributing; earning those high school diplomas and then earning those college diplomas, or getting certified in a trade or profession. We can’t succeed without it.”
Read the entire speech here and take heed. It is time to not only think locally, but globally.
