Every Friday (you know, if I remember), I’ll post my answer to one of the 50 questions.
5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
I’m not here to be Miss America, okay? My answer is not going to be world peace or saving endangered animals or whatever. Instead, I am going to be totally and completely selfish in my answer.
I would guarantee every college graduate (who maintains an acceptable GPA…let’s say 3.0?) a satisfying and well-paying job. Seriously. Just interview the graduate, discover the right job for her, and then hand her at least $50K a year to do said job.
Sure, not every graduate knows what she wants to do straight out of college, but at least she would have an idea based off whatever the degree is in. And you don’t have to guarantee the graduate gets to keep the job. She still has to work her ass off, just like any other employee. Performance down? Bad attitude? Then go ahead, fire her. But give us a fucking chance. You won’t hire us because we don’t have enough experience? Then what was the point of 4+ years in college? And how are we supposed to ever pay off student loans if we’re making 26K a year? I wouldn’t mind paying these student loans if they had actually gotten me a job where I make a decent amount of money, and I had a little bit of job satisfaction.
