Lifehack’s Dustin Wax: 10 Skills You Need To Succeed At Almost Anything

Dustin Wax of Lifehack

Dustin Wax is a fantastic writer and somebody every college student should investigate. The following list is Dustin’s skill set for succeeding in almost anything in life. I provided my own list which is very close to Dustin’s content. What is most important for you, while preparing for life after college, is to become an expert at #1, #2, #4, and #8 on Dustin’s list. In fact being able to speak in public and write well are the two biggest skills employers are looking for in a job candidate. The problem? Those same employers rarely tell you that is what they want in a new hire.
