Parker needs a job...
Parker graduates in two weeks and has not found a job.
While we are both very aware of the economic climate, the reality of joblessness after graduation is still daunting.
Parker did everything by the business major textbook. He is graduating with a 4.0 from a reputable business school. He’s worked for two years in sales and interned for a year and a half in marketing. He joined several active and acclaimed business organizations and remained close to his professors.
When I graduated, students with less credentials had jobs being thrown at them. It is sad how the reality of our economy hits hard.
It is also hard to comfort him when he’s so dismayed. It is doubly hard to comfort him because I would feel even worse if the shoe was on the other foot.
