This is the reason why extracurriculars are so heavily stressed upon in college applications and look the best on resumes.   
Blaming employers for your own lack of initiative isn't going to make you any more qualified.

I will learn things that have nothing to do with my job, I will have art as my major, have no refferals, use the time I should be spending to strengthen my resume to complain on the interenet, then I will complain even more when nobody hires me.

I personally believe that kids today shouldn't aim for collage as a goal. They should aim for a career that will support them/their family. If that so happens to be through collage go for it. Maybe you can go to a trade school for electrical work or welding and have a career that way. That's art degree your parents are helping you foot the bill for isn't getting you a job.

Unless you want a 						*********					job this post is accurate, but none of you have the right to complain...   
   
Employers aren't going to employ someone who has just done well in their tests because some people are just smart and can do minimal work and get decent grades. Some people just sit at home doing nothing and then take their tests and pass with flying colours. Employers want proof that you're a motivated person, capable of sorting things out for yourself and that you're good at co-operating/working in a team.   
Interviewers ask questions like these to filter out the lazy people who never went out and got experience for  themselves, school is not a place to get these life skills, school helps you academically, and whilst academia is important, so are life skills. You can bet that if someone who has a lot of life-skills but lacking the grades on most terms won't be granted the job because they are looking for the all round best candidate.   
   
You can't expect to just go to school, browse the internet everyday,  get your grades, then land in some comfortable job (although some lucky people can -.- ).  Because the REAL WORLD just isn't like that.

With the situation as it is now, initiative is the key. Do some extracurricular **** or get a job.

Tests provide a measure to certify that you are knowledgeable in the field of such study. Real world applications is up to you. The school/university/college has no obligation to provide you that experience because it is about your motivations. Furthermore, if the education system were to provide that experience, they would be highly dismissed as something "simulated" and "surreal."

This actually really relates to what is happening to me right now, I am in work experience in a hospital as a nurse because that's what I want to do.
I am learning so much and when this is finished I have to go back to school and learn about things that will not help me at all when it comes to the profession, but I have to do them in order to do the profession.
It's stupid and annoying.

I did decent in school and excel at work. I love how it looks like I paid to do work and didn't try as hard as if someone is going to pay me.

My understanding school is irrelevant until the final two years. Then it becomes just the stepping stone to get into college (UK here, so that's 16-18 years, or more/less depending on the course you take)

Your final college grades, which amount to your A levels, effect your chance of getting into university. Then how you do there, essentially effects your chance of getting a job.

So uh school/college is useless, just a stepping stone/bump in the road.


You do learn stuff there though. Such as how to hate your fellow man.

I don't understand posts like this. Yeah public school systems probably aren't the best, but I literally learned all of my basic knowledge at a public school and most of the adults in todays world went to a public school. So instead of just bad talking public schools, why doesn't someone come up with something better?
