Earlier this week I spoke in front of a group of undergrads. Many of the students were freshmen and sophomores, and I realized that it's been about ten years since I had been in their shoes.
Although I was originally asked to talk about my career path, I also wanted to take the opportunity to talk about things they didn't ask me about. I thought back to what I was going through when I was their age, and tried to think of what would have been helpful for me to hear back then.
This is a recorded, condensed version of the presentation I gave on March 14, 2011
