two days to see the two news about the college students is very depressed, the moment I wrote this article. First of all, these two news, one is college students to recruiters kneel, one is college students can not find work, suicide.
, these two are just extreme examples. A lot of people will think this is the problem caused by the economic crisis. But I don’t think so. I talk about my feelings as a college student.
college students kneel not kneeling you recruiters, nor is that job, but the social evaluation of talent in the kneel. Our parents kneel kneeling knees day, do not you kneel recruiters! Why our students lost self-esteem? Is the talent evaluation mechanism of this society to give her too much pressure, too high. Is the social pressure on these only child bias, is the social discrimination against 80, 90, we become cheap labor force, there is even worse than migrant workers. I’m not discrimination against migrant workers, I am from the countryside, I only think what a college students do to cultivate a country? For the four modernizations? The harmonious society? In fact, the difficult employment of college students is not harmonious reality! The students to Dutch act’s not worth! A flower to the flower and one ran to the sun at eight or nine fall! I feel very sad!
, who did we disturb after 80 or 90?. Why do we say we have no backbone? What makes us unable to bear hardships? Why do we say that we are the beat generation, and when we do not have the right to speak, we comment to a generation. It’s a bit unfair. Those who are in the comments when cattle elders do not know who is to be the final judgement? What is good or bad is not up to your comments! This is to say for posterity. Not to be
when there is no backseat driver do a duty.
. You did it right, all right? What kind of society did you give us? Many people were laid off, two class differentiation, migrant workers can not afford hard-earned money…… We don’t talk too much, everybody knows. And now we don’t have any resources, we have all your resources. Funds, channels, banks…… That is our job? When we are not what the comment is biased! When these conditions are met, you these so-called old company is also be annexed by the emerging knowledge economy. So don’t wear caps for college students. You know, they’re all your kids. Don’t say they’re good for nothing. Maybe the next one who can’t find a job is your child. We’re not allowed to judge, just don’t give us a hat.
in fact, we are useful after 80, our college students are useful. When the torch was protected by the disabled after 80, when the Olympic Games more mention 80, 90 after the name of the time, we should know that 80, 90 era came. When you are a college student, you will find that the network was created by them, Baidu, Sina, and NetEase
