Developing Critical Thinking

Imagine that you’re organizing a job/career fair of some sort.  If you can choose any professionals to come give a talk, which ones would you choose and why?

Example: Entrepreneurs.  Because you can’t learn to become an entrepreneur (although universities do have the courses around the world), it can’t be taught.  Therefore, I would love for this specific individual to speak about the practicality behind the actual curriculum.

What are the most important factors for you in choosing a career? Think about the following vocabulary: travel, holiday, salary, colleagues, challenges, languages

Example: Colleagues.  Colleagues and being in a supportive environment is extremely important.  Job satisfaction, to this day, is something of the past.  I believe the majority human beings working paycheck-to-paycheck have very low satisfaction on the job because the environment isn’t positive.
