Graduation is upon us, which means that, not only is an entirely new generation entering the work force, but the generations before them have all sorts of last-minute advice to give them as they start this new chapter of their lives. Commencement speeches have long been the best way for successful people to disseminate advice, and the class of 2012 is fortunate to have had so many inspiring, heartfelt and humorous ones to help send them on their way.
While some believe that good advice is wasted on the young, I believe that sharing words of wisdom is a great way to calm some of the fears young people inevitably have as they graduate, and it’s a nice way to acknowledge the hard work that got them here, while advising them of the long road ahead. Here’s what the best of the best had to offer the class of 2012.
