is not an act, but a habit

SO a lot of people complain about how hard it is to find a job. At some point you have to sit back and think, are there no jobs? or am I not hire-able?
I don’t blame our generation, I don’t even really blame the generations before us, seeing as they are our main influence. I believe he generations before us had ever intention on providing us with everything we need, and that is the issue.
Many moons ago, 12 year old boys had to go off to work to support their families. After that came the education phase. There were so many people deprived of an education that they made sure that they would sweat blood just to make sure their children were provided better opportunities than they had. Now we introduce false sense of entitlement. Parents sent their kids to school, no problem their. But along the way they failed to establish a work ethic for their children. Education has become less about seeing it as a privilege and more so as a means of receiving praise.
It is completely understandable to want the best for your children, but please avoid raising an asshole. As someone who has done hiring for many a company, both corporate and on a private level, I have understood what companies are looking for, and sadly most parents are the reason their children cannot be hired. PARENT: It is imperative that you allow your child to find some kind of work. Babysitting at least. It allows adolescence to be surround by people other than their social circle and family. It allows you child to understand that they need to behave and handle situations in a different manner. If you are 23, just got your degree but have never had a job or an internship, i can assure you, the working world is a place that you may not know for a while (unless you have the right connections).
I was raised with the idea that education is a privilege. I graduated from school and received a pat on the back. I have worked since I was 13 years old and honestly the only thing that effected my grades was my laziness and the fact that I was a rebellious teenager. I have not finished college as of yet. I have a associates and about a year left to complete my bachelors. I have had many jobs, and I often get made fun of for it, but really, I have gone on maybe 2 interviews in which an offer was not made. I have a resume and a list of references that I must say are amazing. I have never been dismissed from a job for any behavioral issues. I have been laid off twice but that was due to the economy. I have beat out people who graduated with 4.0s simply because they have never worked, volunteered or have done anything outside of their academics. Just because you majored in business, does not mean you know business. If you do not want your child to work or find it unnecessary then please, I implore you, please keep the extracurricular activities going. Every job need references, most every job wants an employee that has proven to be beneficial. You as a parent cannot provide that (always, because it’s been done many times). So if you feel you are helping your child by allowing them to pretty much do nothing but go to school, please, think of yourself as a hiring manager. It’s about the experience. You rarely see degree qualifying positions that accept applicants with no experience.
And if you graduated and cannot find anything, but are only looking at high paying corporate positions, i highly recommend taking up any part time position in the mean time. It took you 4 years to earn your degree, whats 6 months to a year to establish a working history to give your resume a little more life?
