Re: OK Son graduated high school and can't find a job.... NOW WHAT???
The entire education system is a total RIPOFF. They want you to borrow more and more money digging yourself into a debt trap that can never be paid off. College is a complete SCAM! It isn't worth it!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13127957


For all of those touting trade school...that isn't free either.

My niece has just enrolled into beauty school. It's a 6 month program. When she *graduates* she still won't be able to practice because she has to put in FREE hours to get certified. When it's all said and done her bill for *TRADE SCHOOL* will be close to $40,000 PLUS interest.

Trade school isn't as cheap as it used to be.

My daughter and Son in law were in the same boat in 2011. Both went to temporary agencies. Her first job hired her and now she is CEO earning 75k a year. His was at a bank and he is still with them earning half what she is. Both are very happy.

I hate to break it to you but there is no such as "welfare" for single men. Even for women with children it doesn't amount to much.

Fast food?

They're always hiring. If you're a decent worker they'll give you a raise pretty quickly.

It's a start. They train you and you learn how to work in the real world with minimum pressure. Work is good, regardless of where and when. No one is above working, even if it's a McD's or Burger King, or whatever.

BTW, fast food, box stores and even restaurant dish washers....they ALL now only take online applications and résumés.

The days of walking in, shaking the hand of a manager, being clean,polite, making an impression....yea so long long long gone.

All they see is text on a computer screen showing experience.

Then it is decided if they will be called in,which he isn't since he has no experience going against adults with years if experience, even cooking fries.

Times changed in the job market.

All facts.

Years of volunteer work don't even get you calls for interviews anymore.

My son has more volunteer hours than you can imagine. Years worth...it does him NO GOOD. Still no calls for interviews.

He should learn web design and be his own boss. Here's what he needs:

- business license
- laptop computer
- professional looking website
- savings account for taxes

Required skills:

- strong business ethics
- ability to map out an entire project
- ability to stay well-organized
- excellent written and verbal communication
- installing and configuring CMSs such as WordPress and Joomla
- installing and configuring common plugins such as Magento or WooCommerce
- graphics editing
- SEO basics
- social media integration
- e-commerce basics (i.e. configuring shopping carts, payment gateways, shopping site API keys)

He should focus on small businesses and organizations. Charge $700-$900 for a brochure site and $1200+ for an e-commerce site. Always do half up front, half at the end. He can start with one per month as he's learning everything and then work up to one per week. What he doesn't know, he can learn from reading 'Web Design for Dummies' and YouTube video tutorials.

He can meet with prospective clients at a coffee shop, nice restaurant or hotel lobby until he can afford an office.

He'll want to always create client accounts (web hosting, domain registrar, social media, etc.) with clients' info to avoid big problems. Also, at the end of a project, he'll need to give the client a list of all relevant account passwords and login URLs, as well as to walk the client through managing everything. Writing a step-by-step guide for basic edits and updates is a good idea.

How about certification training...

He can get Python and C++ training and certification online for free, both of which will make him instantly employable in the Google (they use Python) and all-computer world (tons of places use C++.)

He could literally pull down over $100K per year just by getting these two certifications. If he has ANY imagination, he could use both of these to develop an ap that will make him disgustingly rich for decades to come. Just because he knows how to write the code...and most people don't. It is a brief, opportunistic window in which we currently live. He should grab it by the balls before it is too late, or he will spend his life framing houses in the shittiest of weather, until his arthritis makes him stop.

Fucking sign him up for coding classes, and tell him to get the fuck out if he refuses.

I agree with you.

And I even mentioned in an earlier post that in some states volunteers are not even needed. Yes it's true, with so many out of work and trying to keep skills sharp,AND others allowing family or friends the positions, insurance needed to actually cover volunteers you can't even give your time away for free.

The field has changed dramatically. Either you need close family or friends in a business, former military with close friends in a government job who create a job just for you, you speak native fluent spanish or start your own business or go military.
