College graduations were not too many weeks ago. Now, all kinds of graduates are faced with the reality that they have to convince someone that they are worth money. Now they have to realize that when someone pays you money to do a job you best be making them money. Now, you have to network, fill out applications, and interview. You realize that the business world you have been taught to hate, has an agenda that doesn’t agree with you. Business does lots of good works in the communities they operate in and business people are good citizens. However, if a business doesn’t make money they go out of business.
