You realize that people who have college degree's are competing with your no degree yet son for the same positions just to make it by right now, right? Its going to take a while.

What I realize is that people with college degrees will hang around such a job only long enough to find something better. He's more receptive to growing into a career position than a college graduate is.

That's the Old Way of Life.

The New Way of Life is that college graduates are grateful for whatever work they can find, regardless of status, and they'll hold on to it for as long as possible, and that can be a long, long time.

In some cases, it will be quite a while before there are "better jobs."

Of course there are exceptions.

Exactly lovebrentwood.

I've been working in a restaurant for 8 months and have realized how lucky I am to even have that which is a horrible feeling when you've worked your butt off through 4 years of college (BS in bio, not some crap worthless degree too) and masters certificates.

SOOOO yea, its going to take him a while, especially if he doesn't have any experience. The restaurant I work at is able to be picky enough to only take people with several years experience at this point. I got lucky and know the owner.
