1. we are going to be contract workers/free lancers
2. Resumes and Cover letters are a dime a dozen, some jobs have been sent 14,000 resumes for one position, you usually get the interview through knowing a friend
3. The bachelors is a requirement, but it just a qualifier, it doesn't get you a job or interview, but if you don't have it most likely you won't get the job (sorry to sound negative on that part)
4. Short term thinking in the stock market has effected employment, people get downsized to raise the price of stocks, every quarter to show growth
5. Technology has drastically made jobs easier to out source, as well as have 1 person do the work of 2 or 3 people
The key is creating a "Brand for yourself" marketing term, and net working. Which I would say this common knowledge is given at colleges, parents and other books about this subject. "who you know gets you in the door, what you know keeps you there."
There's no hidden secrets. Just straight up live life and net work, get a job through who you know.
One thing I don't like is the author doesn't give alternatives for people who don't want to go to college, he assumes all of us will either go to college or vocational to get some specialized skill to sell. It's not exactly creative on the routes to getting a job, but he doesn't box anything either, he says to pick something you love doing and hopefully you can make some money.
