It seems as if though, as one scrolls through the sea of jobs that are available in the varIous industries; the rate of pay and yearly salaries are a bit of a joke (depending on the industry). Clearly, one would think that Employers today are leaning towards taking advantage of what they view as desperate job seekers that would take the first offer given. Please stop...just Stop it!! My thought is this...If one takes a job out of desperation for an income and soon finds themselves praying for the next payday to roll around, then something is not quite right and it's not ever going to be at that point. An insufficient paycheck is the primary generator of stress and anxiety. It's almost as if though one can get more stressed out on payday then they were while they were going back and forth to work during the cycle....LOL! It's the strangest thing. My suggestion and recommendation to all Job Seekers (Me included) is to find something that you actually enjoy doing, are good at, and have fun with at a salary that make you Happy...well at the very least comfortable; this way when Pay day rolls around it won't be as disappointing or anxiety-ridden.
The disappointing and or saddening part for some, me included, is that it seems as if though rates of pay are actually decreasing at some level. I'm starting to get a real sense of the disparity in incomes based on which part of the country one looks at.
Moral of the Story...Never Settle; Do Research, Look at the Numbers, Know Your Worth, and whatever you do...DON'T TAKE THE FIRST OFFER, ALWAYS, ALWAYS ASK FOR MORE!....strike a balance between Confidence, Gratefulness, Humility and Ambition and NEGOTIATION!!
I mean really....Hadn't we all worked hard to get where we are at this point!
Schooling is one of the many trainings that we need to help us in life. And as we go,or chooses, to go further in higher education, usually we have decided on a career that we will be doing as a profession for life. It is naive of us to think that any job will hire us with no training of the position that we are applying for,some job will train us for a position,but the norm is that many employees are looking for someone who is trained and in some cases with experiences. We shouldn't think of this as not fair,because after all we want the same standard when will go to get our hair done,make a order for food,call a taxi,go to the store,need a baby sitter,go to the doctor,seek help for repairs on our house and many and all other things we need help or service with in this life,we wants someone that is trained.

The number of people bitching-and-complaining about getting a job is ridiculous. The number of younger people bitching-and-complaining about getting a job is ridiculous.
Continuity builds for better business. To hear anyone say a company is only looking to it's to hire a younger generation is foolish.
Working on both sides of the fence, the younger generation is tech-savvy and lazy and the older generation will work hard and can't figure out technology.
Get on board or leave. It's pretty simple. And, no...I'm not some 18-40 year old snot-nosed kid.
