What is personal litigation? Does that mean non-business litigation. Couldn't you just say, "Litigation"Anyway, I'm glad this thread was resurrected. I remember reading it a while back.Cher1300, if you are reading this, sorry to be sassy: 1) What type of work experience do they need? What if they move bricks for a living or work at the school library? I worked my way through school, and I learned a lot. But I don't think you need to work through school to know how to handle stress and show up on time. Additionally, work ethic changes depending on the job. A salesman who makes commission by selling mortgage products might have to go to luncheon's and play golf a lot and he has to be self-driven and commit to the sale. A grocery store clerk basically just has to work at a high level and stay put. Those are two wildly different skill sets.2) The second paragraph of points you make sounds like someone who only likes to manage one type of person. Maybe a college student who was involved in several campus activities and frats and partied all the time will actually have a wildly different skill set than someone who worked the window at the movie theater. Your post implies (not insinuates, since that's different) that you want to hire drones. Also, a 3.0 and a 4.0 are miles apart, Duncanjp. At most state universities, a 3.0 in a liberal arts degree doesn't require hardly any effort. Maybe some 4.0's aren't "that" impressive, but a true 4.0 shows dedication. That said, a 3.6 and holding down a job is pretty dang impressive. A 3.0 and holding down a job shows you have the skills of a highly functioning primate, at least.
Now, I can't speak for every other employer out there, but if I have to choose between someone who worked at Burger King for the last year with a 3.2 gpa versus one with a 4.0 gpa and no work experience, I'm going to hire the BK kid. I'm looking for a strong work ethic and a desire to work. If you stayed at home depending on mommy and daddy for the last year without doing some type of work, it insinuates that either you won't do certain tasks required for your job or that you may not even want to work. Everyone has to pay their dues at some point. How can I possibly give someone a chance at an entry level job when I don't know if they can even hold down a job?
