My question — what skills do you have?

I am highly suspect of anybody who asserts that a degree from a “top-tier” school entitles them to a job, doubly so when the degree is in a fluff major.

We turn out far too many “college graduates” who are essentially literate but don’t have much else to recommend them in the workplace. Graduate school is often where students learn specific skills.

Re: Groupon – 2 couples can surely break the $50 barrier at Smorgas Chef – but for 2 it does seem intended mainly as a way get you to spring for a bottle of wine.

So what if the average check FOR ONE PERSON at that restaurant is lower. That just means you go with enough friends to bring the total up to the required level.
