Yesterday, I was contacted by CareerDiva, Eve Tahmincioglu, who is among many things a career columnist for MSNBC.com. Seems she had an intern, Katherine, who needed another perspective on how her story might end, (or begin, depending on how you look at things).
Her posting titled, College Grads Feel Like Dead Man Walking describes exactly what many other soon-to-be college graduates must be thinking. I suggest you share this with people you know who may have some of the the same questions.
I don’t have a mirror ball, but I suspect this young lady will do fine in life. She is gathering information from experts, leveraging her boss’s network and weighing all of her options before making any long-term commitments. Plus she is a great writer! (Must have learned a lot from her boss.)
If you have a job for a young person like this, let me know and I’ll be happy to personally introduce you to Katherine. Don’t wait too long. I suspect that even in this economy, she won’t be on the market very long.
