Yesterday I read a survey of bosses and personnel managers by Pennsylvania's York University that found that new college graduates do not know how to put their phones away and actually get to work.
This survey also found that 83 percent of graduates have gotten in trouble for excessively use social media and 40 percent show up to interviews in inappropriate attire. We are dealing with the most unprofessional college university graduates we’ve ever had.
So the kids who are currently graduating have massive debt, are having trouble finding jobs, or are not working in a job they studied for and this may be the reason why.
I’ve talked to my son who has only dabbled in community college and hasn’t gone to a 4 year school and I found that he is doing just as well financially as the kids that just graduated because they are not doing what they went to college for.
Parents of my generation are responsible for these kids who don’t know how to behave in a work place. These kids have a bigger sense of entitlement than any graduates before them; they are less focused, and have the worst work ethic than anyone before.
Everyone getting a participation trophy, everyone being told that they can do anything and it’s hard to blame the kids for this because this is how they were raised. But they are college graduates; they should understand that when you are work, you need to be doing actual work. PUT THE PHONE AWAY!
