The graduates

Parents of recent college grads are concerned about how recent their children will find a job in this economy. Pamela Slim on Escape From Cubicle Nation has some very interesting thoughts on graduating in this economy that I couldn’t agree with more.

The first thing to remember is that there is no such thing as a perfect job. It does not exist, there will always be some sort of disadvantage in any job you go into. So stop looking for the perfect job, you wont find it out there.

You are always self-employed, no matter your tax designation.
The job market today is radically different than that of your parent’s generation. No job is guaranteed, and no company can promise stability. So the best way to create long-term income security is to manage your career at all times as if you were self-employed.
