"Never get a full time job". Bill Nye. Good for Jacob. It is way too east to fall into a career at a corporation and there goes your life. Full time job, mortgage for what is most likely a mediocre and styleless home, couple of kids that have to be stuck in daycare, low level designer good like Coach and Pandora, credit card debt, boredom, etc. He should put it off as long as you can. I have a big job with a major telco for 20 years and getting laid off was the best thing that ever happened to me!
