Five Companies Who Are Hiring The Most Twentysomethings
Be mad, UPS isn't one of them.
Fresh out of school and and want a job? Been out of school for a while and still need a job? Said f*ck school altogether and don't have a job? Well, there might be five places that would be happy to have you.
One includes travel all over the world, another is where all of the cool and hip people hang, while the others allow you to meet new exciting people everyday
Be warned, all of them involve standing on your feet for hours on end. So if you've grown accustomed to sitting on the couch looking at Everest College commercials and playing Xbox, you might want to get your mind right for this.
First, we have a U.S. Military. While Biggie's advice about UPS hiring is very hit or miss these days, the military is a sure shot. They're always hiring because the U.S. is always fighting or starting sh*t somewhere else. Plus, you even get to learn how to use weapons and travel the world. And if you do a superb job here, you get all sorts of cool medals and accolades. Be warned though, work for these guys too long you may come back home with a missing body part and nightmares. Nobody treats people with one arm who talk to themselves nicely, even if they took a bullet for them and their "freedom."
Secondly, we have Wally World aka Wal-Mart. If you graduated from college with a psychology degree and was told you can't get a job with out a Master's Degree, put this on the resume. Here, you will get to see all of the wonders of human behavior. You will see people spend money they don't really have on things they really don't need. You will see people buy 10 units of one product, just because it's cheap. And you will see what happens when you give the confused people too many options. You will also see the origins of WalMartosis. A clinical condition where people just buy stuff for the hell of it. Need an example, explain how someone has a cart filled with socks, printer paper, Sunny Delight and a road map. Where are they going?
Third, we have Starbucks. Here you can put that fancy English degree to work as you correct people on what they are ordering with out sounding "stupid in three languages."
Fourth, we have Target. You will essentially have the same experience you would have at Wal-Mart, just a little more expensive.
Last but not least, Best Buy is hiring too. You will have to check your ego and emotions at the door for this one. While you may have a degree, the people who shop here usually have jobs and money to blow on flat screens and home theaters. So don't get jealous of them when they say things like "What does this do? How much does it cost? It doesn't matter, give it to me anyway!"
All jokes aside, this list was pulled from an even more depressing story about the state of the job market for young twentysomethings hoping to get a piece of the American Dream. Nearly half of the people in America between the ages of 16 and 29 do not have a job, and these are the best places to choose from. The people who do have jobs mostly work at restaurants, because you know, people with money love being catered to.
