Speech given to Mt. Whitney High School in Visalia, CA, June 2003
1. Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off.
2. Very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on our own time.
3. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
4. Life is not fair -- you better get used to it!
5. And finally -- If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss!
FOLLOWING SIX PAGES ARE FROM "U." THE NATIONAL COLLEGE MAGAZINE. THEY ARE A GOOD READ ABOUT HISTORY OF BILL GATES' EARLY LIFE, HISTORY OF MICROSOFT, AND PERSONAL INTERVIEW WITH BILL GATES (LAST PAGE HAS MICROSOFT COLLEGE RECRUITING FACTS) -- WORTH THE READ -- best to print out first.
