Real Life Career Advise From Alanta Braves' General Manager

Today the Twitter universe learned a lesson: Sometimes your favorite sports idol doesn't give the money or career advice you're hoping for.
The drama started with an innocent Twitter Q&A during which Atlanta Braves general manager John Coppolella took over the baseball team's general account to answer fan questions using the hashtag #AskCoppy.
Coppolella and fans chatted about topics you'd expect: Player picks, Ron Swanson, how organic food is overpriced.
Then one fan asked the baseball manager for career advice. Coppolella replied, "Look for internships. Don't worry about the money. Work hard & don't have expectations beyond being part of a team. Assume nothing."
Fans were not impressed.
@Braves This is great career advice

I've always wanted to make no money, have little self worth, be undervalued.

A single tone-deaf Tweet can be all it takes to bring anger about this bleak financial reality to the surface.
The average college graduate leaves campus with more than $27,000 in debt, forcing many to postpone moving out of their parents' house and impacting job decisions, such as whether or not to take a low-paying internship.
In fact, a 2016 GOBankingRates survey reveals that about 70 percent of millennials have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts and nearly one-third don't have any savings at all. When it comes to retirement savings, the statistics are also grim.
Many millennials — particularly those aged 26 to 35 who carry significant debt burdens — are delaying homeownership and instead paying historically high rents to live in cities, where the only available jobs are.
