Students always ask me if they should try to intern after college. My response is that it always depends on the student’s circumstance and previous experience.

Last week, I moderated a think tank for Dell in New York City. The topic of the think tank was Gen Y in the "real world" (get the connection with my book? Welcome to the Real World). I sat around a table for several hours with great students, entrepreneurs, and employers and held an open dialogue about all sorts of things related to Gen Y at work.
