Okay I have several family friends, that I consider more family than most of my family. Last night a friend of mine's daughter 22 year old, she just finished graduated college....Double major Business Finance and Economics....During college she worked any job she could get some times working two jobs, during holidays to pay her way through school. When her Dad was laid off 2 years back she handed over all her check to them to help..When her grandma was sick before she passed she spent time with her bathing her and changing her..... She is hard-working, not party chick, actually kind of nerdy, but sweet gal none the less. .But this caught me off guard....So for past 7 months (since she graduated) She has not for the life of her been able to land employment, and what I mean "employment" I mean a "career." Professional job....(that she went to school for, no shortage of service industry jobs or retail) Her work experience has been retail, and while she did well, and good report she has been unable to land employment. She has interviewed ALOT, but the biggest objection that comes is she lacks "experience." She has worked since she was 15, but the experience most of the places she is applying, Banking, Financial Services, Insurance Services, Actuary, and Consulting places, all want experience in that field, shoot even the "entry-level" ones, want experience on top of School. I know the economy is bad, and the competition is stiff, she is very professional, and I would hire her if I could, but since I am starting from scratch my agency, I could not guarantee her a "career." (And now with this I dunno if I could trust her) Only a job, so she asked me for favor, she was very ashamed, (or seemed like it) but after explaining to me all that she is going through in her quest to utilize her education, she asked me to LIE. She asked if she could put on her Resume, that she worked for me for a period of time as an Account Executive/Customer Service for my Insurance and Financial Services Agency the last 2 years while she went to school. What would you folks have done??.... Be honest, and please give your reasoning...I will tell all of you what I said and did.
