Raw, unedited recording of the talk.



  • Skills in Planning: Portfolios
  • Letter to a College Senior
    The Portfolio approach enables you to display a mind engaged with the surrounding world while the Resume is an artifact specifically designed for a bureaucrat’s needs.
  • On the benefits of a Philosophy Major
    “Often a person with a business degree has memorized a map of business processes and solutions. But rarely will that map be an accurate depiction of the current state of a business or industry. What we want is a person who knows how to use a compass, not a person with an outdated map.”
  • The Job Interview is No Time to Text
    “Life has gotten more casual,” Swan says. “They don’t realize (the interview) is a sales event.”
