Following graduation in spring of 2017, Ryan Elantri is looking forward to pursuing a career in international business and finance. He has traveled to China through an internship program, and believes in the importance of keeping up with both international and domestic current events. This is becoming increasingly important as major political and economic changes happen around the world. If you haven’t been keeping up with current events, here’s why you should start.
– Being informed about current events will help you speak knowledgeably with those around you. This is especially important for young people, who may be looking to impress professors or potential employers. If you have ever felt left out during conversations among your friends and coworkers about things that are going on in the world, then staying informed about current events will help keep you in the loop.
– It can help you make better decisions politically and financially. When you know things like what is going on with the global economy and what political candidates and world leaders are saying, you will be able to make better decisions, as well as understand their impact on the greater global community,
– Current events are genuinely interesting. There are many online platforms, apps, and blogs that present the news in ways that are very accessible and easy to read, so you have no excuse for not keeping up with what’s going on.
Ryan Elantri always makes an effort to stay informed about current events.
