Graduating Soon? Dilbert’s Words of Wisdom

Posted on 28. Feb, 2006 by in Saving & Investing

He recently posted a list of Dilbert advice he was asked to give a group of graduating business student that is not only true but also hillarious. Some of my favorites are:

  • Your potential for senior management will be determined by the three H’s: Hair, Height, and Harvard degree. You need at least two out of three. (Non-Harvard schools will be acceptable if it’s clear that you “could have gone” to Harvard.)
  • There’s no such thing as good ideas and bad ideas. There are only your own ideas and other people’s. If you want someone to like your idea, tell him he said it last week and you just remembered.
  • Preparing a Powerpoint presentation will give you the sweet, sweet illusion of productivity.
  • Non-monetary incentives are every bit as valuable as they sound.

Check out the entire list here and feel free to post your own graduation advice here.
