Omaha, NE -- Warren Buffett went one-on-one with Action 3 News on Saturday afternoon.
He talked about local issues. Everything from the upcoming election to the UNO graduates was discussed.
Buffett talked about what it means to bring thousands of shareholders to his home town.
"People love coming to Omaha," said Buffett. "They leave with a very favorable impression."
He also joked he might have to apologize for the weather this year.
Action 3 News asked what advice he would give to those students graduating college and entering the job market for the first time.
"Find your passion, if you can, and follow it." said Buffett. "You may have to talk another job until you find what you really love. Take the job. Eventually, work toward finding the job you would hold if you were independently rich, something that causes you to jump out of bed every morning. Be excited about what you're doing, other than the fact you're getting a paycheck at the end of the week."
The conversation then turned to local politics. Action 3 News asked how he felt about the Mayor's race. The election is on May 14.
"I made a contribution to Mayor Suttle a few days ago," said Buffett. "I support him."
Buffett said the meeting went off without a hitch. Some of his companies, like Nebraska Furniture Mart, saw record sales.
