Unemployed by Choice?


I hate to admit this, but there are plenty of people out there who are unemployed by choice.

  • I’m not talking about the autoworkers in Detroit or the textile workers in North Carolina.

I’m talking about the people who contact me, ask for career advice, but then tell me that they’re not interested in doing [insert job here] because it doesn’t really fit with their life goals or whatnot.

I especially love the people who don’t have many skills but won’t go back to community college for retraining because school just isn’t my thing.

These are the people who make it hard for me to be a bleeding-heart liberal.
