Wow

Saw this and just had to share…stunning number. According to a CNN survey only 20% of college seniors who applied for jobs received them this year, 20%! It was 51% in 2007. This just goes to show that there are large forces at work in your life, over which you have no control. Think about all those who went to get their MBA 2 years ago when the market was booming, now they are faced with a very tough job market, and a huge mountain of debt. Malcolm Gladwell’s new book Outliers details this very well. A must read, as are all his books.  Video embedding seems to be hitting a snag, I will post it if I every figure out how to do so.
