Open Letter To Unemployed Graduates

This open letter is from Yan Vishnepolsky, The Cofounder and CEO at NiiD Technologies.Open Letter To Unemployed Graduates

Dear UNEMPLOYED graduate,

I understand the pressure you are under as you hunt for a job to launch your career or go for an advanced degree.
Your university placement unit is either:
1) Busy
2) Not responsive
3) Expects you to do their work

The pressures as families become more nuclear while the expectations on you remain the same. More work, less support than ever.

The hunt is destroying you.
Wrecking your work/life balance.
Killing the time with your mother, father, brother, sister, friends.
Emptying you of your joy to start your college/career.

Maybe you are applying for jobs not related to what you studied for.

After exams and memorization of facts, you’ve been forced to:
- prioritize interviews over family conversations
- prioritize deadlines over joy
- prioritize your career over your relationships

What you should never do is to measure your success by age.
It is okay to for your first job not to be in a big corporation.
YOU choose what YOU want to do.
You have your whole life to fulfill your dreams.
I have hired graduates who have gone on to start businesses (a chess training company), make huge salaries, or do go on to brilliant careers.

To all hiring managers reading this: Please hire fresh grads. They have a lot to offer... the energy and positivity of youth.

Below are some of the responses gotten;

I wish this piece of advise was given much earlier to me and that recruiter actually tone down their judgement towards fresh grads. But nonetheless I learned thru the hard way and landed myself at a place.

Young graduates are an incredible source of energy each company should draw on. They can bring joy, dreams and availability to learn that may have no equals. Why not giving them a chance? Many of us were fresh graduates and I still remember that period of my life. Thanks for reminding their importance. Have a nice day, Yan!

Hey Yan..truly agree that fresh grads come with lots of energy and vibes ..however, we should keep in mind that the experienced also were freshers once upon a time and they have huge knowledge and experience to offer to the company. Hence equal opportunity should be given to both these views though.
