Want to be employed? Solve problems, don't just get a sheet of paper from college

If you look at the current landscape of online services to help people find jobs, you will quickly get lost in a sea of communication. Millennials are the largest generation now, and most of this population grew up with the internet. Furthermore, More Millennials have a college degree than any other generation of young adults. That means that EVERYONE is filling out online applications and mostly everyone meets the educational standard.So why are so many millennials unemployed/underemployed?

Well, as a person who is a Millennial and not underemployed/unemployed I would like to share my opinion. As mentioned above every single person I know born from the current largest generation is doing the exact same thing to apply for a job in a market of supreme over saturation. You might as well play the lottery. I am not saying abandon this tactic, I am just saying don't rely on it as your only strategy.


Here are some ideas when looking for employment.

One way to measure which candidate is fighting for the most freedom

Political rant: Google "Milton Friedman Quotes", while on the page that shows his quotes, do a Control "F" for the word "Freedom". It appears so many times (shown below). That is not the case for the current landscape of candidates running for office if you do the same exercise (also shown below). This is yet another another stark reminder that no one is looking out for you. Time to polish off the mirror and have a conversation with the person there. For they are the only one looking out for your best interest. Please examine my screenshots below.

If Options A & B are the only available choices on the table, you can always flip the table.

The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The debt free living concepts taught in this book revolutionized my financial life and overall outlook on finances in general. This is a very practical book that will radicalize the way you plan for the future, in additional to giving you peace of mind on a fiscal level. Great read if you are wanting to do some future planning, and build a legacy for your loved ones.

Review: Start

Start by John Acuff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book motivated me to wake up early on Saturdays for my selfish time. I love that concept! The idea that I can work my 9-5 and then work on my side business at specific times so that my hobby/business doesn't interfere with my obligations. This book gave me so many ideas and intuitive ways of starting a side gig. Another great read from Mr Acuff!

Review: The Millionaire Next Door

The Millionaire Next Door by Thomas J. Stanley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a great book. I love that it shows how our pop culture feeds us lies. Lies about wealth generation, and lies about the average American. This book is a fantastic example of how the common person can build wealth: slowly, consistent behaviors, non-romantic responsible low risk endeavors. These attributes may sound boring, but they are reality.
