When he got to the military, Stillwater native Adam Dince was a self-described hot mess. “Those movies where the overweight guy gets to boot camp, and they pick on him? That was me,” he says. He got his high school diploma because the military wasn’t accepting GEDs. But since then, Dince has earned a master’s in integrated marketing communication, and his first book came out last November.
Hopeful to Hired gives high school students the advice Dince wishes he had received before graduating: about soft skills, about networking, about building a “Google resume.”
