The message from these extremely smart gentlemen is, folks, if you’re smart you’re made.

Actually knowing stuff, IMNSHO, is only a small part of hire-ability. The real key thing is self-regulated learning, because in a learning institution it’s too easy to get by through following orders and the rest of the pack. Everything you actually learn will be a shadow of a memory in a few years, unless you practice it…but if you demonstrated that you can ‘pick things up’ quickly, then your potential bosses will know you can recall your past knowledge in a few days. Or something similar in a week, or completely new in two.

Has this gone slightly off-topic? Number of firsts – more than it should be, I’d say…
