Okay, I've retired from doing career counseling, but I still get upset when I see stuff like this online or in magazines:
I just think it sends the wrong message for young people, especially where they say "Whether you’re obsessed with cosmetics or comic books, chances are there’s a cool job just waiting for you." Chances are there is a cool job just waiting for you?!? Yeah, right. The truly cool jobs don't just wait for anyone. There is tons of competition. I worked with tons of people who would have loved to have been comic book artists and video game developers...but they lacked the talent, ability, experience, and drive! And in this day and age, it can be hard enough to get a job, let alone "a dream job."
Or is there some value to giving young people dreams and lofty ambitions?
