Reid Hoffman’s Advice

The Second Parchment

Hoffman’s presentation is one of the most simplistic, direct, yet substantive presentations I’ve ever seen. This one focuses on what sort of skills college graduates should hone and what actions to take to be a step ahead in the advancement of their careers.

I particularly find his third point appealing: to take intellectual risks. Unlike most self-proclaimed career gurus out there, Hoffman emphasizes that taking risks is important as long as its negative repercussions (which emerge in a worse-case scenario) don’t severely impact on one’s main career path.
