Something you can't find in America anymore because employers nowadays have set the bar of qualifications way to high. They only want "experienced" people, even for crappy jobs like bagging groceries or taking your food order. The irony is that you can’t gain any experience by not doing these things first. I’m sorry but how does one need experience to bag groceries or work at McDonalds? It used to be that if you had a four-year degree (or even a 2-year degree) from a half-recognized university or college, you could get a really good job and eventually have a promotion and have a really good future. But those days are over. Today they only want people who have internships, Masters Degrees, PHd's and some kind of public involvement for a job that’s not much better than average and pays no more than average. No employer will hire you anymore for even a computer position if you have anything less than a Masters degree, even if you are really knowledgable at computers. Employers nowadays also only want minorities to work for them, thanks to affirmative action in the name of “diversity”, so white people will finally be oppressed. My sister applied only as a Office Assistant (the keyword is Assistant) at a small-to-medium sized company, but they wouldn’t hire her because she didn’t have any professional experience and wasn’t “qualified”—-setting aside the fact that she is very good with computers and office stuff. What they really meant is that she was “too white” to have the job and had to hire a minority who is less qualified or a high-tech professional from India to fit their minority quota. And companies of today wonder why they can’t find good people? Thank the liberals and their “diversity” ilk that emphasizes political correct BS, that has ruined the middle-class. Companies of today put their focus and energy on bogus criteria like a high GPA (even though a high GPA doesn’t constitute being smart) rather than the person’s potential, or what they have to offer, or what they have overcome in this life. What if a person with a 3.5 GPA cheated their way thru college rather than someone who got a 3.0 and worked for it and overcame a lot of obstacles?? Employers of today don’t care because they are superficial bastards who only focus on meaningless crap. Like I said, they wonder why they can’t find quality people anymore.
In that case, I will NEVER have a job because I had a low GPA in college, no internships, no professional experience, no technical know-how, not many useful job skills, was never publicly involved in anything, and am notoriously lazy—and don’t care.
But when you finally manage to find a good job, it’s something you must have to work for a schmuck you hate, to earn money to buy things to impress people you hate even more, so a crook can eventually rob you. It’s all futile, and a complete waste of time!!
Having a job is actually the biggest fraud on the face of planet earth.
