One of the things we reinforce with every candidate is the importance of “connecting the dots” when they interview for a job.

“Reiterate and tie together why they should hire you at the end of every answer,” we recommend.

At times, I’m reminded of how true this advice is in present times.

The NY Times ran a piece that connects the dots between social unrest and unemployment.

Too often we forget to account for the social impact of unemployment in terms of both dollars needlessly spent and lives needlessly stalled or ruined.

Investing in training programs for an “apathetic” generation is the first way to overcome the unhealthy stereotypes that characterize many older peoples views of younger workers.

Frighteningly, age discrimination is rampant worldwide. We see this at present with many employers favoring younger workers.

Until we begin viewing every individual as someone who can contribute to society, we’ll always battle negative social stereotypes and unhealthy social problems.
