You are not going to be hired by Groupon, or any of the Internet pre-IPO companies that are beginning to coalesce the financial markets into a collective frenzy.
You are not going to be hired by any of the leading social media companies. The people that run these companies like to pay low salaries, and they like to teach young people how to do things, not un-teach older people how to do those things differently.
You do have a monster opportunity before you, and you haven’t thought about it yet.
You have ideas.
You know people who are good at financial analysis; you know people who know how to lead teams and manage projects. You know people who are comfortable not being the Wise One- these folks understand the power of shepherding people who are smarter than they are.
Here’s your truth: you are not going to be hired by any of these uber-modern companies.
But you could start your own, couldn’t you?
