Just some friendly advice to the youngsters who are finding the job market unfriendly.
Ok, just thought I'd post this as I recently attended the Cal St Northridge graduation yesterday and was completely unimpressed with MANY graduates who will soon be looking for work. A lot of it boils down to low expectations and popular entertainment such as the Bruno Mars song "Young, Wild and Free". The message of the song is that when you are young you are SUPPOSED to be wild, dumb, immature, a drug user and lazy. That might work if you are a famous musician, but for the 99.9999% of young adults out there you will find the job market highly competitive and if you believe you are supposed to be wild you will find employment difficult at best. That song just rubs me the wrong way because a lot of young adults seem to believe that "that's how it's supposed to be", as the song states. It's all fine and fun until reality hits you in the face that you have no money, no job, and no prospects because you prefer drugs, hanging with your homies, and going to clubs all night.
