Alejandro Matias Ravasio That's hilarious, considering those are highly-desired jobs that pay very well.
Anyway, the relation of education to experience can be very interesting. I went to culinary school for awhile, and I noticed a couple of things: 1. a degree was not a substitute for kitchen experience, but at the same time 2. without a degree, people would hit a cap on how much money they could make. For example, a su chef without a degree might never make more than $15 an hour, whereas, one with a degree is a good candidate for a salaried employee.
The vast majority of the places I've worked accepted 4 years of college as at least 3 years of actual experience. If I spent 4 years designing graphics and animating, that's 4 years of experience of designing graphics and animating whether I was being paid or not.
Kristi Noel Beck Meh, that's one example of one industry. As an employer, I'd rather hire the candidate with 3 years actual experience as a manager than somebody who went to business school and has a bachelor's degree. Real world experience trumps college experience.
Ben Miller That's a happy medium, but that's the rare minority. In what most cases are, real world experience will trump college "experience". I'd rather have somebody who actually knows how to make a high quality pot roast from experience than somebody who learned it from a book or a controlled kitchen environment. I have been to college, got a degree in business management, and trust me...my degree did not prepare me as well as I thought it would for management.
That's an easy one. You call your favorite uncle, Tell your uncle he's now your former manager or is a small business owner in the field you need experience in, and that you worked for him for 3-5 years. Then you simply lie to your future employer. Like a boss.
if that works then OJT's are meaningless besides I guarantee that those who did that will almost definitely won't get a job.most workplace actually searches your ToR to know if you are up to the job.you wouldn't wannahire incompetent people right?
