My dad was a farmer most of his life. Later on he went onto open a small liquor store. That store paid for his four kids to attend college.
When I graduated from Purdue I had offers from all over the country from several large construction firms and IBM (I majored in Construction Management). I was not sure what avenue to take.
My dad's wise and simple advice felt right and has shaped my career in a great way.
When asked what he thought, he said, "You probably ought to go to work for a business that does what you want to do - where their primary business matches what your degree..."
That common sense advice was spot-on - I went to work for a construction firm and have never looked back.
