You listen to some of today’s young people and they way they speak of themselves and others gives off an air of superiority. However, while their spelling almost instantly gives them away (“loosers”), their job applications do not.
A 65% majority of business leaders say young people applying for jobs at their companies right out of college are only “somewhat” prepared for success in business, with 40% of C-suite executives saying they are “not prepared at all.” Not only that, but even those who get hired anyway may not rise very far. Almost half (47%) of C-suite executives believe that fewer than one-quarter (21%) of new grads have the skills they’ll need to advance past entry-level jobs.
Instead of Occupying, telling off cops (or anyone in authority), or dictating how the world should be, maybe these young people should just prepare themselves for a workplace that doesn’t really need them just because they’re them.
