Does industry think University is a training ground?
University/College depending on where your from, so after loosing my job in the public sector due to cuts, I’m now looking for work again, 2 weeks in I’ve been offered 2 jobs but then declined them for not ticking a box, all be it a very trivial box (a days training max).
I find this more than frustrating that employers seem to expect you to acquire industrial experience out of thin air, that’s not the biggest problem, my problem is how specific they are.
Is it not very narrow scoped of industry to deny recent graduates such as myself positions they will grow into very rapidly because of there un-willingness to invest any time at all in their future workforce?
And what does this spell for my generation and the future of industry?!
