Wolff advises grads to follow their passion

Richard Wolff

Richard Wolff, UMass Amherst economics professor emeritus, comments in a story about 2010 graduates entering the job market, noting that anxiety amongst students about finding a job is very high.  Ultimately, he recommends that students pursue a field they are really passionate about because they are more likely to become really good at what they do.  According to Wolff, in this volitile market, they will be just as likely to make a career out of a subject they enjoy as one they choose for job security.  (, 5/15/10)
