Should a student get a job and work whilst studying? Here are a few arguments for and a few against. The issue isn’t really a cut and dry, black and white one. For example, a student taking programming courses should certainly get a job if he or she can manage his or her schedule so that no sleep is lost (it is difficult to program when tired). On the other hand, a student taking a medical or veterinary course should definitely not get a job because there is scarcely enough time to get the studying done and fit in some sleep. (more…)

Much has been said about the generation known as the “Millennials.”  Baby Boomers see them as lacking in commitment, reflective of instability in lifestyles, and not focused enough on career, family, and long-term goals.  Many even call them the “Lost Generation,” a reference perhaps to the “Lost Boys” of Peter Pan.  But take heart, you Millennials – this is not the world of your parents nor will it ever be again.  You are a generation that is coming into its own and adjusting to a very different global mindset.  As members of this generation, you have a much better handle on how your world will “work” during your lifetime and how best to navigate it.  Consider the following: (more…)
