What are you supposed to do as a young adult who wants to gain experience?

Are internships really worth it? On one hand, they are supposed to provide you with experience and networking. On the other hand, what happens if you are not getting paid? How do you survive? Are you really learning your field or are you doing busy work during an internship? 

Are internships a way for companies to save money and have work done for free? Or are they really trying to provide experience to those who want to learn? If they really want to be helpful, wouldn’t they want to pay at least something to those who could possibly be future employees? 

Is it morally right to have people work for free? Shouldn’t everyone be paid if they are providing services? 

Will companies be hindered if it was mandatory to pay all interns? Would they decide not to provide any internship opportunities? Or would they just have less interns? Or would it not effect them at all if they had to provide compensation? 

How are young people supposed to gain experience while paying their bills? 

The majority of job postings require at least some experience. If young adults can’t afford to stop working to gain experience at an internship, how will they ever gain that experience? 

What are your options if you need both an internship and an income to survive? What happens if you can’t find an internship that is paid in your field? 

What are you supposed to do if you want to learn at the same time of being able to survive? 

 

We have all heard about the student loan dilemma in this country. We have all heard about the economy spiraling downward and so many people not working. There is much blame to be said but no solutions to the disastrous position we are in. Everyone wants to blame everyone else but no one wants to take the fault.

What are you supposed to do if those who caused this problem are not admitting their mistakes?

Shouldn’t the private student loan lenders admit that they are taking advantage of the system and charging insane interest rates? Shouldn’t the private student loan lenders admit that they were giving out loans to so many people that they shouldn’t have? Shouldn’t the private student loan lenders admit that they knew that they were destroying the lives of so many people and this country?

Shouldn’t the colleges admit that their skyrocketing costs were unnecessary? Shouldn’t the colleges admit that they were charging more because they knew that the private loan lenders would just hand out money with no limits?

What are you supposed to do when the only people being blamed for the student loan bubble is the students and their parents? Should we blame people for wanting to be educated? Should we blame people for trying to better themselves? Should we blame people for doing the right thing?

Recently, stories have been released about students being irresponsible and not making the right financial decisions. Doesn’t it seem hilarious to read these stories right after the student loan dilemma escalated?

What are you supposed to do when people realize their mistakes and then they try to cover up and place blame on innocent people? Is it right to try and place blame on others? Aren’t we taught to take responsibility for our actions? So why aren’t thee private student loan lenders and the colleges taking responsibility for their actions? If they are really in the business to educate the public and help others, shouldn’t they admit their faults, change their rules and make a better society?

We all as a society have to work together to make a better future for ourselves, our parents and our children. Yet, young adults were told to go to college. Young adults saw the hardships of their parents and grandparents. If two generations believed that education betters your future, wouldn’t you want to go to college?

What are you supposed to do when you entered college believing that it was a place of learning and leave knowing it was only a place of business that you gave money to that you didn’t even have?

We are all supposed to learn from our mistakes. However, that is not the case for some. Some individuals don’t want to admit their wrongdoing for fear of being scrutinized or for the sole reason that they truly believe they are not at fault.

We can all agreeably blame certain people but that is not going to resolve the current situation.

Shouldn’t we all now concentrate on resolutions?

What should we do in the current situation to unleash the chains from young people and have a better future for their parents and their children? As a society, don’t we want to provide opportunity to all and whoever chooses to take the opportunity will succeed?

What are we supposed to do for the people who have $200,000 out in student loans? What are we supposed to do for the parents who co-signed the loans to provide better opportunity for their children? What are we supposed to do for the children in high school who don’t want to go to college because of the costs?

Every generation makes mistakes; however, how do we provide relief to the current mistake at the same time of educating the future generation without discouraging them or setting them up for failure?

We all know that we can’t prevent all problems but once a problem occurs, shouldn’t we as a whole resolve that problem to better improve society? If people are already upset about their life at a young age, do you really believe that they are going to open up businesses, be innovative or even try to make a better society? If you start off life already failing, how much effort do you believe one will give to make a better future for the younger generations?

What are we supposed to do now to have a better quality of life for all?

Do you feel that your life was taken from you? Do you feel that your life ended before it even begun?

Do you still have the urge to fight to get what is left of your life back?

As so many young adults and middle-aged parents are dealing with the harsh realities of obtaining an education and being victimized by private student loan lenders, what are you supposed to do to fight this cruel and unjust system?

What are you supposed to do as a young adult who thrives for an education?

What are you supposed to do as a parent who wants to give everything to their child and provide them with an education?

Should you be forced to choose between debt or an education? How is it fair and not cruel punishment to charge high interest rates, no income based repayment plans and no chance to remove the debt in bankruptcy court?

If other victims of crime can get their day in court, why can’t those who were victimized by private student lenders and the failing college education system get their day in court?

What are you supposed to do when all you want is your judicial system to resolve this dilemma?

Do you live in a city that is overpopulated? Is your state overpopulated?

What are you supposed to do if you live in an area where there are more people than there are jobs? Do you try and beat competition? Or do you think about relocating to an area where the job market is developing?

If you can’t find a career in your hometown, should you consider finding a career in a different area? Or should you wait until you can find a career in your area? How long should you wait? A month? A year? Five years? How long is long enough?

What are you supposed to do if you have to pick between leaving your family or finding a career? Will you regret the time you will miss with your family? Or will you regret putting your life on hold?

Should you feel guilty for wanting to have some success? Or should you be proud for following your own dreams?

What are you supposed to do to find acceptance with the choice you will make?

What are you supposed to do when trying to find the right news source for you? Some people prefer to hear the news from watching TV. Others may prefer reading the newspapers. Then, there are some who look for independent news sources via the internet.

Are you ever really getting the full news story? Or are you getting what that specific news source wants to tell you? Are all news stories biased? Or do you find that some are completely unbiased?

Are you the type of person that prefers hearing only limited parts of the news because you believe some news is meant to not reach the public for a reason? Or are you the type of person that believes that the public has the right to hear the entire news story?

What are you supposed to do when you feel like you haven’t found the source of news that you like? Should you stop watching or listening or reading the news? Or should you listen to all sources of news and gather your own opinion on what is factual and what is not?

Both sides to an argument could prove their argument if they are capable to convince others. So, couldn’t news sources convince its viewers to believe their opinion of the story? How are you supposed to find a source that will ultimately just state the facts? Is that even possible?

What are you supposed to do if you want to hear just the factual aspects of the news story? Or what are you supposed to do if you prefer to hear not only the facts but both view points in order to make your own opinion? Is that even possible? Or are we living in a world that promotes just right and wrong rather than partially right and partially wrong?

As the year begins and campaigns start, what are you supposed to do when deciding which politician to vote for?

What happens if your beliefs vary among a couple of politicians? How do you make your vote? Do you vote based on a specific issue or do you vote based on who you think will have the better chance to win?

How do you make your decision when you are not fully satisfied with a candidate?

What happens if you feel strongly about women’s rights but your against a larger governing power? What happens if you believe in decreasing the budget but also believe that the government should step in during emergencies?

What are you supposed to do if you don’t agree that everyone should have to choose between two extreme parties? Should you vote a third party or should you choose one of the two dominant parties? If you vote a third party, do you think it will make a difference? Do you think that it is a wasteful vote? Or do you believe that voting a third party will satisfy your desire to not have to choose between two parties that your not fully satisfied with?

How do you make your decision on voting day? Do you weight the pros and cons for each candidate? Or do you pick a couple issues that you feel strongly about and choose the candidate that has the same views as you?

What are you supposed to do if you walk up to the voting booth and want to give partial votes to each candidate? Should you feel that your thoughts are ridiculous? Or should you feel that maybe you have a point and the current system is not up to par with society?

What are you supposed to do when you know the field you want a career in but have no mentor to guide you in the right path?

What happens if you have been out of school for some time and internships are not an option? How do you find your first step into the field of your choice?

What websites do you use to find career opportunities in a specific field? What happens if your specific field rarely has any job openings but you really want to be in that field? Do you research companies that you would want to work for? Or do you just wait until a position opens up?

Should you consider that the only way into the field you want is by knowing someone? Or do you still hold onto that hope that maybe that will not be the case?

Today, many people are struggling to find jobs. Some even stopped searching. Should you accept the fact that you at least have a job  even though it might not be your dream career? Or should you keep trying to find that career that you desperately desire?

What are you supposed to do if you are not a well connected person and are searching for a career?
