Tony James - Graduating and being able to use your brain

President and CEO of Blackstone, Tony James said during a recent interview on Bloomberg News:
"I love my Job and I've got the best job in the world. When I got out of college what I worried about more than anything else was not being able to use my brain and being bored and not being able to use my creativity. So I can do that now and Id be very reluctant to let that go. I'm stretched everyday and people listen to me."
My concern is for the lack of brain-stretching opportunities for graduates. Many of the roles are no more than corporate sweatshops which offer acres of tedium and a culling of brain activity.
