I just interviewed a bunch of College student for an intern program. By and large they showed up well dressed and acted appropriately. They were all engineering student if that means anything.
Well we can only hope you are unemployed yourself.
I work part time as an adjunct Professor. If I give anything other than the highest grade, I am hit questions, insults and arguments for weeks. It is incredible.
In WI, we have verify the recall which is a database of all those who signed the recall against Gov. Walker. That’s the best way I know of to ID Leftists. No need to ask the question.
“Ive often wondered why young people today seem to unablel to TURN OFF THE PHONE!”
As an owner of a medical clinic, we have a policy of forbidding employees from using cell phones at their work stations. It’s counterproductive and could result in security leaks (we have to be careful of open lines, copying medical info). The patients are also on the phone all the time. We have a policy of no cell phones, but patients seem to break the policy all the time.
I thought of getting a cell phone jammer, but to my surprise, they are illegal in the US.
Nah. I work.
Karma is a tricky thing.
Yep, which is why ending teacher tenure is awful idea. Just encourages rampant grade inflation.
The entire premise of education reform is that the kids are wonderful and brimming with enthusiasm to learn. They aren’t. It’s mostly a quasi-thuggish lot demanding “respect”.
Companies can move and hire overseas and will.
It’s the New Normal, who are you to judge your own employees?
How about people who yawn in public without making any attempt (with at least one free hand) to cover their mouth?
I remember reading an interview with Simon Cowell of American Idol fame. He was trying to sell an American version of Britain’s Pop Idol to AbC, CBS, etc. but they were extremely rude to him.
One interviewer, he said took off his shoes and socks and propped his bare feet on the desk right in Simon’s face, another told Simon to start selling whatever it was he was selling then held up his hand after two seconds, said he’d heard enough and that the answer was “no.”
Fox was his last resort and the rest is history.
