Super happy to quickly bring attention a TheNextWeb post by me today. It's a gracious adaptation of a longer piece featured previously here on this blog.

I read an article in the New York Times recently on how employers need to "reopen the doors to the young". As someone that has hired 50+ people under age of 25 in the past year and have had none of them fail in their new jobs, I felt compelled to comment on how out of touch this article is, and also lay out the steps below for how modern liberal arts graduates need to view the world and themselves to land truly outstanding first jobs. It's a complex problem, and - importantly - I think the NYT article misrepresents the difficulty for both hiring managers and job seekers for entry-level jobs.
