TDot’s Tips: “Don’t Be Evil”

Obligatory hat tip to the folks over at Google for providing the alternate title for tonight’s entry :)

Back in February, my first guest post over at Kaplan’s Beyond Hearsay blawg went live offering my $.02 on how to succeed at life.  And for reasons that I still have yet to fully understand…

…they asked me to write for them again :surprised:

My new entry went live earlier today :spin:  Here’s a sample:

At some point in our lives most of us have heard the cliché “it’s not what you know but who you know that matters.” While etymologists might not know its origins, they know this particular saying has been around for nearly a century — and, depending on your perspective, embodies either (a) an uncontroversial realization that our networks influence what we can obtain, or (b) a jaundiced worldview that individual merit is meritless.”

So for those of us still in law school, which approach [“what you know” or “who you know”] will matter more when it’s time to find a job? Which perspective should we be focusing on before we graduate?

Neither.

Hopefully your curiosity is at least piqued a smidge — if you want the explanation, you’ll have to check out the full entry at Beyond Hearsay ;)

And remember, there are no emoticons over there so you’ll have to imagine the ones I’d throw in as you read :D

Hope you enjoy it, and have a great night y’all!
