It is not new knowledge that employers avoid hiring fresh graduates due to their lack of experience and maturity. It was interesting, however, to again realize while reading “Millennials at Work: Young and Callow, Like Their Parents” that it is not uncommon for new graduates, within the span of history, to have a hard time getting used to the work place. By the time workers are ready to enter the field; they are only in their early twenties, which means they are not fully developed as a forty year old would be. So the behavior makes sense. I am grateful that Judson provides us a way of experiencing the work place before we graduate, with access to job shadows and internships before we even graduate. I’m reading about kids who have a poor work ethic and this point is brought up often. I hope to not be lazy in the workplace. I am glad my dad started me out early by requiring I do chores around the house and help him whenever I can because as doing these activities, he never stopped teaching me work ethic and how to handle responsibility. Even though our generation is having a harder time finding jobs, we are better at finishing our education than the generation before us. This is a good thing to hear but at the same time, it is more necessary for our generation to stay in school due to the fact that jobs are scarcer.
