To the Editor:
In your article that appeared in the Oct. 7–15 issue, “On the economic downturn: a recent graduate’s experience,” [it appears that] the individual is spoiled. His parents helped with his schooling and bought him a house. As your article [quoted Budi Suwandi as saying], “My financial situation has been relatively stable.”
The individual is not motivated to find a job since he thinks he is over-qualified for certain jobs. Stop setting your sights on a higher standard because of your degree. Change your attitude toward finding a job, and stop thinking you’re entitled to certain positions without working in the real world.
