Most people today fail at a lot of things when it comes to being professional, setting a good example, and handling a career. College is good for kids in preparing them for what their career is about and how that career is supposed to be handled, but what about how to handle you? I feel like 95% of the people that lose their job or get fired are decent people, they just don’t know how to handle themselves in the workforce.
I feel like colleges, or even high schools should take a strong approach on this subject because not only will it filter out the people who don’t want to work, but it will prepare the people who deep down want to work. I feel like careers now-a-days worry too much about the G.P.A. of a person instead of their character. I’m majoring in Management. Anyone can do Management, but since I have a better G.P.A., that makes me more qualified for the job. Unfortunately that’s how it works. We rarely judge character and don’t give anyone the time of day to express their character in interviews.
It disgusts me when people with higher GPA’s (But have poor attitudes) get jobs over people who have about a 2.5-2.8 GPA and are very polite and intelligent. It’s just awful how that’s how must firms in America operate. That’s why I wish there were more classes and things pushed to having to act proper in the professional field. It’s currently sad how the business world works.
