Agostino's Insights on Millennials and Their Full Potential

Agostino’s Beginnings

  • Agostino did not come from an entrepreneurial family.
  • He pursued multiple fields, such as mechanical engineering and computer science.
  • Losing interest in his previous fields, he became fascinated in history. Hence, he started his career as a professor and research in university by 2000.

Implications of the Golden Rush Evolution

  • The fourth and current industrial revolution is characterized by a high rate of technological advancements that occurred in a short amount of time.
  • There is a heavy emphasis on the use of the internet and artificial intelligence.
  • New jobs are now emerging, but universities are not yet prepared to teach these to students.

Facing the Evolution: Three Assets

  • First, Savoir Faire (Knowing How to Do) - learning what you can in university
  • Second, Savoir Vivre (Knowing How to Live) - focusing on networking to position yourself in your job market
  • Third, Savoir Dire (Knowing How to Be) - having the self-awareness to realize your passion

Hard Skills vs Soft Skills

  • Hard skills are what you learn within the university, like medicine and engineering. These are going to be quickly outdated
  • On the other hand, soft skills focus on relating to others, such as honesty and kindness. These will help us adapt to the changes brought by the golden rush evolution.
  • Soft skills, despite their importance, are often forgotten, especially in the age of social media.
