The job situation hits new graduates hard.

oh they should not worry - the jobs out there are mostly for them.

not for us.

Thanks Miriam, that link brightened my evening.

Although it does have the ring of truth to it, thankfully my kids are fairly independant but the chill fear that they will move back home is always there (except 2 of their bedrooms are now studies for Lady Jugulum and myself) heh heh heh ;)

Tat: I have every confidence that recent college grads can be taught to fold sweaters, mow lawns, or carry trays, if enough effort is expended to train them for these demanding tasks.

no, mean they go in as junior designers - and there is no slots for intermediate staff. It's either PM/Lead Architect/Design Director or the entry level.

Good evening Miriam, having had a chat with my dad he reiterated some advice he gave me when i graduated from university (my goodness it's 30 years ago) wow have the years passed.

In dads words "there is no such thing as a bad job, it is an opportunity, it opens other doors"

Considering my dad entered the workforce in 1937 as a 14 year old i tend to listen to his advice.

Perhaps some of our new graduates could use this advice.
