Commencement speakers this month will send new graduates off with both a sense of accomplishment and an expectation of exciting opportunities.
College graduates: Do not be dismayed. The competition for jobs may be tougher, but those of you with marketable skills will find jobs. If you've completed internships in your field of study, you have a leg up.
High school graduates: Don't even think for a minute that you don't need a college education because there won't be any jobs for you. Don't be so short-sighted. Four years from now the economy could make a complete turnaround.
Most of all, stay optimistic. Pessimists who seek nothing usually get exactly that.
