Also, anyone else notice that they're planning on hiring more Business than anything else? Isn't that just wonderful... more bean counters.

If they don't have enough people to count the beans some might trickle down to the poors!

They will have to compete with grads from the last few years to get them.

What do you expect businesses to do? Hire liberal artsmajors? A business major has proven a certain level of rational decision-making ability. Namely, they majored in a field that would allow them to more easily find a job after graduation.

No. All things being equal, it's easier for a recent graduate to get a job than someone that's been unemployed for the last few years.

Hire people that actually produce things.
Don't you have a TPS report to get back to?

Please. TPS reports are for the Computer Science majors to produce. I interpret the TPS reports.

All things aren't equal. And many of those grads from the past few years may be under employed, not unemployed. Maybe doing temp work for the company that is hiring.

Love getting resume's from recent college graduates with a complete inabillaty to spell or to proper grammar use. Although I do have a lot of recent college grads that are some of my best employees, you just seem to have to sift through a bit more junk to be able to get them.

Yeah a lot of sifting. I just wish my company would let me be more involved in the process of hiring people for my team, and not just sending me some clients friend or realative that thinks coming in on time once for their first month they deserve to be promoted to VP.

Then your comment was stupid. You basically said grads have to compete with other people in the work force looking for jobs. Really?!?!! You don't say!!!

The correct phrasing is "too proper grammer use of." Didn't they learn you nothing in collage?

And, as always, workers over 50 can fark off and die in the streets. Assisted suicide would be a lot kinder than what happens to older people in America.

that degree in Medieval poetry isn't going to help these kids get a job, but the ones with a degree in something useful, they should be fine.

I'll stick up for the liberal arts folks by noting they at least typically have some depth.

Business degrees are just economics degrees for shallow rich kids who can't do math.

Obamacare made it not just legal, but mandatory. You will be gay married to the first available turtle come 2014.
MichiganFTL was just smart enough to major in the field before it really took off.

Companies are starting to complain that their new hires don't know enough technical writing, basic geography, history, etc. to get along in the modern world--almost as if they were tech school grads. They haven't quite started to ask for a decent liberal arts education yet, but they're on their way.

The degree in sanitation hauling can be quite useful. Most garbage trucks require at least a class B CDL (straight truck over 26,000 lbs).

A CDL can be VERY useful. Everything around you has at least a couple of truck jounrnies on it.

/ holder of a CDL-a
// never had a problem finding work.
// Keep on Truckin'

I've thought about trucking when my daughter gets out of school. I've heard, though, that you don't really make very good money once you factor in hours worked, the inevitable mobile internet costs, and the money spent on food.
