People will find you. You will be able to write your own ticket you will able to build the foundation of very meaningful and successful professional life regardless of how many Instagram followers you have.

I don't use it. What's the harm. So again I look back and I say this objection also is. Nonsense.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
