Who to work for after school

Warren Buffett's advice to students when planning for their future was above all to work for an organization whose leaders they admire. Buffett strongly counseled, "You will be affected by the people around you. Therefore you should surround yourself by people who are better than you and they will make you a better person." Buffett did caution against taking his advice to the extreme. Smiling, he recalled the last time he told an audience to work for someone they admired, he was speaking to the MBAs at Stanford. Afterwards the Stanford Dean asked him, "What did you tell these students? They have suddenly all decided to work for themselves."
