The need for an idea! As the economy is coming to a grinding halt and layoffs seem to be the order of the day - despite common knowledge in the management world that layoffs only worsen the situation of the economy - it's important that a graduating student has his/her plans set in the worst case scenario. Hence the need to constantly be thinking of ideas to do. Once you get an idea on what you want to do, make sure you write about it and discuss it with as many people as you can. Internet via any of the many ways - twitter, blogs, tumblr, flickr - it's a sin if you don't toss around your idea and capitalize on the free advice just waiting for you from the gurus of the valley. Just a thought as that's what I am going to be concentrating on!!
