To me our future opportunity is in our hands. People don’t have to be pessimistic about that because after going to school and learn some knowledge you should apply that when looking for job. The best strategy to me after graduation is trying to know almost everything. You don’t have to stick on one thing as Dr. Green like to say” you have to hassle” means you have to check on every door. If you do a good strategy you have not going to be suffer in your job place and your future will be guarantee. It is difficult to think about this when you are in the midst of a job search. We often accept our first offer based on quick results and short-term goals rather on a long-term perspective. The whole notion of fit seems vague and uncertain when trying to find that first position while weighing both the risk and the opportunity. The knowledge economy is no longer a panacea, and those who can better themselves through hard work and continuous education should reap the rewards. What we are need is a change in attitudes, towards the job market. People create their own careers; this is not only from their hard work and learning, but also from their personal ingenuity and attitudes
This may be the most difficult time ever to launch a new job. The 2008 recession forced many companies to downsize or even to put them out of business. Instead of hiring permanent workers, companies tend to absorb workload fluctuations by temporary workers. So if companies try to be flexible with manning, why can college graduates be flexible and utilize this time as their preparation time? I agree with Dr. Green’s strategies and mainly the idea of being flexible. When an opportunity rises, I don’t think it matters if the position is a full time with juicy salary and benefits or a part time job which helps new graduates build some experience and connections in the area they want to build career of. I found the same suggestion to managers in this new economic order. (1) Murray points it out as the very first strategy that managers will need a flexible organization, so that it can be repositioned quickly to address new threats and master new challenges. If that is the direction many companies are taking, I would say, “Go with flow!”
