From my upcoming book "Bachelor Pad Economics" (slated for early December)
The result of such a disparity between what you are capable of and what the real world has to offer is a working environment that not only will spectacularly fail to meet your lofty expectations of challenge and reward, but crush your hopes and dreams of the future. After nearly two decades of schooling it will take you months just to land an interview, sometimes years to find a job. After flirting with the likelihood you’ll have to go on welfare, you will have a bit of “luck” and maybe land a job. You will desperately take it just so you can make ends meet, but you will soon find out it is tedious, mundane, and nothing like what your employer said it would be. You will think you’re just “unlucky,” that not all employers are like that, and it’s just a matter of finding another employer. But you will soon find out, job after job, that all employers are indeed “like that.”
In the meantime consider getting an early jump on Christmas shopping as you spread Cappy Cap Cheer (TM) by purchasing any one of my books.
