    New/Recent Grads: Don't be this guy.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/07/bu...eneration.html

    I love the comments at the bottom.

    Would anybody hire this guy? If I was a manager I would google his name if I was looking to hire him, find this article, and change my decision.

    nothing worse than recent college graduates. First of all, they all think now that they have graduated college that they can act smug and pretend they enjoy the finer points of port.
    Second, in this environment take whatever is given to you


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: New/Recent Grads: Don't be this guy.

    He's either naive, dumb or arrogant. I still can't decide on which I'm leaning to. But it's not uncommon: a friend was laid off one year ago and he held on for a while not to apply for the field where he used to work although he would have gained advantage as he's familiar with the job. He's still jobless until this day.

    And once they are hired: they think they are the center of the universe. Worse: after their first promotion, they'll think that they're Gods and Goddesses

    Re: New/Recent Grads: Don't be this guy.

    My first job out of college sucked big time, but I knew it was only temporary. Heck we joked that the entire company was just post graduate education because no one stayed or planned on staying for more than a year or two. But I took it gladly to get something on my resume and get some experience.

    Working for an ISP sucks in case anyone ever thinks about it.

    on one side he does have a point where he does believe he earned a job with promotional opportunities if he made the deans list.


    but on another side he majored in political science, i mean if you do that, you might as well **** away your degree

    I blame the parents. They are enabling him to wait out for his so called "corporate" job. If he didn't have a place and food paid for him he would of taken the job.
