The Atlantic.com posts this story of the plight of Liberal Arts majors …

“A large chasm has opened between the fates of young liberal-arts majors and their peers in STEM (science, tech, engineering, and math) fields. The former are struggling to find work that pays, at least before their late twenties. The latter are mostly finding lucrative work after they graduate.”

While pulling back on the ‘barista’ a bit, the story is interesting reading.

Having found my first job  in the training program at BBDO  at the bar in the Williams Club (RIP), I feel I am unable to relate.

But I am sure that some readers will have up-to-date experience.
