“Sorry, kid… Your resume looks good, but you only have a Master’s degree…All the other applicants are Ph.D. ! ”
About a decade ago, college students couldfind satisfactory and enviable jobs after they acquire Master’s degree. But now, things are quite different. Today's university students usually have muchpressure in finding fairly good jobs. They always say disappointedly that goods jobs means high diplomas.
Why nowadays university students with lower degrees have so much pressure in finding jobs? For my part, this kind of pressure is mainly caused by three reasons.Firstly, the government is enrolling more and more university students year by year. And the growth of the students' number has surpassed that of the need of the society. So, when so many students graduate at a time, the chance of finding good jobs becomes tiny. Secondly, today's university students, most of them are the "only-child", who are more mentally frail. If their first try fails, they will be frustrated and think that it is really hard to find jobs.
This situation can be changed. The university students can join in some extracurricular activities on campus to train their abilities of doing things independently and try to do some part-time jobs during weekends and vacations to gain more social experience.
