RISE UP/GEAR UP
Why Attending a College in a Big City Is the Fastest Way to Grow Your Career.
College is an important decision.
That idea is instilled in many Americans at an early age. We’re told that where we go and what we study will determine the life we will lead.
When I volunteer with Future Founders Foundation, a Chicago non-profit that empowers low-income youth through entrepreneurship, the question of my college choice always comes up.
Instead of spending time telling them about the decision process, I share the one factor that I think has made all the difference in my career: if possible, avoid the rural campus and go to a city with the largest amount of people.
