Congratulations, grads! You've made it. Now what? Should you take a year off and backpack through Europe, or volunteer to build wells in Africa? Or should you chase after that big break to get your foot in the door at your dream employer?
Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of One Laptop per Child and the co-founder of the MIT Media Laboratory, has advice for you: choose a career that's meaningful. Negroponte stopped by Big Think's studio just to share his insights with you. He's met too many C.E.O.s who look back on their lives and fondly recall their time in the Peace Corps, for instance, and not all their years acquiring money. Basically, most of what they did, to them, felt meaningless. Do you really want to embark on a meaningless career?
Negroponte challenges you to choose a meaningful path. That and more sage advice are shared as part of today's big idea.
