Michael Baxter Posted 11 months ago Meg Jay: Why 30 is not the new 20 This talk really hits home with me because I'm 24. I've blew the last 2 years living with my parents pointlessly sending out resumes. No social life. I've finally got an unpaid internship doing what I want, but every day I think about my life passing me by. Advice from me to other college grads, sending out resumes are pointless! Network, network, and network some more! That's the only way to do it now.
