New generation for the work force

May 21, 2013 - John D'Agostino
A record number of graduates celebrated at Fredonia State last weekend.

Now, the job the hunt begins — and many companies nationally are hiring. But what is holding back some of those who have graduated are their reading skills — or lack thereof. According to Monica Allen, author of "You’ve Graduated Now What?" those who are sending out resumes must be ready to write, have knowledge of the company they are applying to and follow directions.

“The primary thing they are not doing is reading thoroughly. … A lot of employers are using a method where they e-mail you back with a request after they’ve gotten your resume," Wilson, the co-founcer of APGG, a multi-brand creative services firm in Atlanta, said on The Wall Street Journal This Weekend on May 6. "They want to see if you will follow through. When we do that, 90 percent of the people do not follow through.”

Percentages like that will not help the jobless rate in the coming months.
