When a student first graduates from college technically they have zero engineering experience. For instance, when you go on Grumman’s website to try and get a job, you will quickly notice that most of the positions are looking for 10-15 years of experience. If you need experience to get a job, and you graduate with zero experience, how the hell are you supposed to get a job? Its a frikkin chicken and the egg thing. You need a job to get experience, but you can’t get a job without experience. WOW.
I have been out of school for 2 years now, and was not employed for my senior year of college. I still cannot get a reasonable job. There are zero engineering jobs in America! There are no computer jobs in America. I have applied for hundred upon hundreds of jobs. Carreerbuilder.com, monster.com, they are completely useless. Either I am a complete loser, or something is dreadfully wrong with this country. I have a tremendous background in computers. I run my own servers. I write my own html/xhtml websites. I used to think I was simply a loser, but that conclusion cannot be the case simply because I have a tremendous background filled with computer, and other experience. Maybe I should move to India, so an America company can outsource a job to me! Hello America, wake up; when a recent college graduate cannot get a reasonable job something is dreadfully wrong!
The price of a regular pie of pizza is rising 10%. A regular pie of pizza at of beginning of 2008 was around $13.51, and the new price in my neighborhood is going to be $15. The price of pizza is directly tied to the price of cheese, bread, produce, and fuel costs therefore the increasing costs are clearly being passed onto the consumer. In general increasing prices in not a bad thing, and is a sign of a growing economy. Although when increasing prices are accompanied by a lack of increasing capital availability (ie. wages) the result is inflation. Coupled with a crumbling job market, stagflation is the biggest woe of the US. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering over 1.5 years ago. There are negligible engineering jobs available, and I speak from a matriculated perspective. I am experiencing stagflation already. I am currently employed as a pizza delivery guy, with a bachelors degree. Welcome to a America, the land of stagflation.
