I left school a little while ago, and managed to get some experience/money behind me before all this 'global recession' thing hit. But I have younger relatives who left school just a few months ago and have found it very hard to find any kind of decent employment. Interestingly both are excellent students academically. I worry that a whole generation of kids, leaving school at the moment are going to have a very tough time finding their way in the world, while those house-boomers who have benefitted from vast house price rises will be further propelled up the housing ladder. It just seems unfair. What do people here think young people should do who are leaving school at the moment? Are there any jobs out there for newbies? I read something the other day which suggested that people might even have to start paying for the chance for work experience!
