He also includes action steps for the audience, “it might be worthwhile for graduates-and the rest of us-if the popular ‘do what you love’ message were balanced with a more timeless message to find work that even in some small way, truly matters” (McCoy, 467). This article is not narrowed to one occupation or field of study, it does a great job at creating a message for all college graduates to get a job that benefits society in one way or
Steve Jobs presents the importance of defining these principles in his commencement speech (2005). He summarizes failures and difficulties, and the lessons he learned. And in Jobs’ case, for instance, the value of the love towards his job and profession encouraged him to stay in even after being fired from his own company, and it also gave the power for not being afraid of “being a beginner again” and starting a new company.
