It's become the trend to have celebrities being the commencement speakers at college graduations. Steven Van Zandt at Rutgers....Pharrell Williams at NY University...Wil Farrel at USC...even Big Pop David Ortiz here at NE Tech. I guess it's kind of cool to spend one more day in Dreamworld before facing the REAL WORLD...but the REAL WORLD does await the graduating class of 2017 so maybe it's best the find out about the harsh realities of life and hit the ground running before handing in those dorm keys. Bryant University's choice of speakers, Chair and Chief Exec of G-E, Jeffery Immelt, gave the 870 grads a bucket of cold water to the face this weekend telling them he might not be as exciting as those other speakers mentioned, but "I'm the only person here today who can actually give you a job." Among his advice, "Don't tweet so darn much. Nobody cares what you had for lunch.Read a book. Apply for a job. Go jogging. Stay humble and hungry. Learn that no job is beneath you in a successful career." By the way, G-E Digital announced almost a year ago it will create an info technology center in Providence with 100 employees to be paid annual salaries averaging six figures. Had I been among those 870 graduates, not only would I have listening intently to Mr. Immelt, I would have done so with resume in hand.
