Should college education be more career-oriented?
Editor's note: China's graduates find it increasingly difficult to get a job in the competitive market. Despite the growing number of college graduates, many employers still complain about finding a good job candidate. Are universities doing enough to prepare students for full-time jobs? Should college education be more career-oriented to alleviate this problem?
For the most part Chinese universities turn out mainly clones who are unable to function independently. SO many students ask me what they should do after graduation because they have no idea how to use their initiative, think independently or have any strong goals other than 'make a lot of money' - very little idea how to do this.
