More proof we're still in an ICE Age

Did mock interviews with three sophomores at MIT last night. About five minutes after a former classmate of mine said this about his first few months on the job after college...

"My company is about as technical as they come -- high tech products, high tech services, everything's technology technology technology. But the work is still all about people. People, politics, more people. It's not about the technology at all."

...one of the students said this during her interview...

"Well, I really want to go into finance and not engineering because I really want to work with people. I don't want to just stare at a computer all day."

I reply, "Do you really know what people in 'finance' actually do all day?"

"No. Not really, I guess."

Wow. Looks like ICE (Irrational Career Election disease), is still spreading like wildfire.
