Perhaps it is time to address the problem about why education does not include job hunting methodologies.
Why do we allow educational institutions to limit the vision of job hunting to who they can invite to their campus? What about all the rest of their crowd who do not make it at first go in the job hunting season – Those who did not find a job because they do not know how?
Finding jobs through the effective use of placement firms remains a backdoor methodology. When most private sector jobs are processed thru them how can they be relegated to the status of witchdoctors not invited to the doctorate banquet?
Perhaps the first most crucial step is to convey the fact that jobs do not find you because you are the best, but jobs are got because you know how to.
Much like explaining electricity to a caveman, but it has to be done.
