The post, Cargo Cut Provides Jobs, in January summarises a challenge by Charles Caro to a concept that job search firms have similar cargo cult magic that brings jobs.
Even Blind Freddy knows job creation is driven by the economics of supply and demand with multipliers like investment gearing up and creating money to feed this. But, as Eastman’s further research found, Cargo Cult worship and beliefs still exist. So maybe Charles Caro is making a stronger of more significant point .
More importantly in our highly mobile and transient commercial world, is learning about getting the job done. Especially so now with fewer around as many multipliers have been going into reverse gear since late 2008.
Another view is with the Baby Boomer generation fast moving out of the picture of influence the new breeds must take charge. Debt Squeezed Baby Bust Generation X, with Free Agents Spoiled Brat Generation Y and now the Under-20s ‘i-Generation’ all have it in front of them .
But it seems many are confused about this and have been for some time. Perhaps a new subject in grade schools called: “Getting a job.” will fix that. But or now I fear Cargo cults jobs, when you can get one, may still prevail.
