I disagree with your assessment

I disagree with your assessment, Gayle. I don't think the failure of your son to find a job is because he lacks experience. That's simply not logical. Everyone who's ever had a job found their first one without experience Set Up Business.

So if a lack of experience isn't the problem, what is?

There's no way to know for certain from the information you've provided, and odds are it's a combination of factors. But let's go over some potential problems and possible solutions.

He's not applying for the right job
Last year, I ran an ad for a video producer. I specifically asked those without the required five years' experience not to waste their time or mine by applying.

Result? Tons of applications from new grads.

Submit a thousand applications for jobs you're not qualified for and you'll get a thousand rejections.

A different story: Six years ago I hired a guy right out of college for $12 an hour. His degree wasn't related to this business and his job was grunt work. Today that guy is in charge of all technical aspects of this website. I won't say how much he's making now, but it's a heck of a lot more than $12 an hour.

The way to prevent rejection due to lack of experience is to apply for jobs that don't require it. They probably won't pay well, but that's OK. Create value for the company, then ask for more money. If that doesn't work -- if you can't add value or make your voice heard -- find a different job Income Tax Hong Kong.

He's not applying at the right company
Small businesses like mine are often easier to get into than giant ones. If you're applying at IBM, there's a rigid vetting process that can't be deviated from. If you're applying here, all you have to do is convince me you can add value.

Smaller businesses may also offer broader responsibilities, which makes the job more interesting. Our small staff has input into virtually everything we do, from editorial content to website design. You won't find that at CNN or The New York Times.

As for advancement, a small staff means fewer layers of management and more opportunity for advancement, or at least recognition. At a business this size, no one can falsely take credit for your ideas
