    If you're looking to improve your social skills, take a look at this article from Forbes where they give us tips on standing out in the crowd:

    I recently received an advance copy of Lindsey Pollak’s book, the revised edition of Getting From College to Career.

Whether you’re in college looking for a job or trying to get a new venture off the ground, you need to be relentless, proactive, informed and mindful of perception.  You also need to figure out your points of differentiation.

As I mentioned in my recent post about becoming an industry expert, as an entrepreneur, I think it’s imperative to stay up to date on industry trends so that you can constantly react and share a thoughtful perspective and feedback  You want your business to become the go-to resource for meaningful industry commentary.
