class 2013 workA recent question posted on Proformative about work.

Since we all either hire them, supervise them or interact with them; what are you opinions on the last several classes of college graduates?


Work expectations (theirs vs yours)
Work ethics (theirs vs your values)
Preparedness for the job (actual or marketplace in general)

General Skills in:

Critical Thinking

And since we’re for the most part financial professionals:

Do they have the skill sets required of an entry-level accountant or finance person.

Or to really sum this up, did they receive a College education or were they given a second-rate/second high-school experience?

Even if you’re not a Finance Executive, what’s your take on the new entering crop of graduates?
