Welcome to Matinee Wednesday. 1980-1989 was the era of big hair, big dreams and great movies. Take a break from work and grab some Milk Duds.
Back to the Future(1985)
Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean “time machine” invented by slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love – so he can get back to the future.

LESSON: You can’t change your past but you can revisit it to make sure that your future is what you want it to be. Self-assessment, based on what you liked and didn’t like about your previous jobs, can help guide your career trajectory.
Going back to different points in time can bolster your career, don’t forget about the skills you learned as a life guard in high school, or as a student studying abroad in college. Saving lives is admirable and managing your time while being distracted by the lure of travel and learning your way around a new city, new currency, and new customs is a lot like starting a job in a new office. We won’t all be at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance with our parents, but learning from our own career successes and mistakes allows each of us to go back to the future.
