There are a lot of opportunities that await fresh graduates, most especially those who were able to be part of the elite group coming from those well known universities. Holding a top spot in any academic class always has its advantages and most often than not, young people end up with very bright futures. In a world that has so much stiff competition among peers, it always pays to know more than the other. I am not only talking about having good relations skills but the acquisition of basic technical abilities.
I know quite a number of people belonging to the younger generation who seem to be struggling in trying to keep up with pressures from work. I have been lucky enough that during my time of being employed, there was not much attention given to a specific skill required since it was easily learned and absorbed through seminars and lectures. However, at this point in time, there are no longer such things as crash courses and stock knowledge never cuts it any longer. Take the case of these new positions that call for an it degree. There is no way that anyone can just talk his way into a job that requires qualities and skills of this nature.
