The Black College Student Strategy Guide

leave a comment »

First of all, I need to commend all students who are in college. Thank you for your hard work, long study hours, and dedication to improving your life. The one thing that helped me to succeed in college in my junior year was working with my counselor to develop a strategic plan for when I got out of college.

My plans at first were to play football in the National Football League. The feedback from my coaches and league scouts was that I was neither big enough nor fast enough to go to the next level. While this seriously hurt my feelings, I had a counselor who helped me pick myself up mentally and create a plan.

She knew I was smart as I was taking computer courses. She asked me what did I want to do. I didn’t really know but I knew that I really liked developing computer programs in lab. It was challenging and fun to see the computer say things on the screen and take input. I loved it. She then told me that she felt I would do well if I studied and highly focused on computer science and get a job in the Silicon Valley in California.

My first question was how much money does this type of job make. She then showed me a salary guide showing that top engineers can make in excess of $100,000 per year. Say no more, I was focused. You must develop a strategy before you start taking classes. You must come up with a plan and most importantly find out exactly what makes you want to wake up at 7:30 a.m., roll out of bed, and head to an 8 a.m. class.

Find that, and you find your future success. I haven’t truly “worked” at a job in a very long time because I really love developing software and do not see it as a job. I haven’t watched a clock in years because I love what I do. Find this in college and you will fly high forever.
