An accomplished person would say that, as they’re many high profile successful people who didn’t go to college or were drop outs and they are indeed successful and wealthy. However, in today’s society it is becoming more and more crucial for a potential employee to have the qualifications or graduate skills in order to fulfil the proposed job role.
Many of the older posters are aware of my amazing bricklaying skills. Anyway, although sustainable construction is the norm and brickwork is being phased out for a more favourable green design. It should be paramount that educational institutions make students aware of this instead of just worrying about their enrolment figures.
For my personal circumstance catch 22 is very problematic, not enough jobs equates to no experience. It may be ideological of today’s generation that society is against them thus having no motivation to go out and create something of themselves.
In my opinion I think the majority of people of my generation think it is just going to happen, it has happened to their family members and it will happen to them. Certainly with enough drive and motivation you can go out and set up your own business BUT a company is nowhere in hell going to hire you in today’s economic climate without the relevant skill set or proven track record as failure is not an option for them.
