    Stupidity!! It ranks up there with “You need to have experience before we can hire you” told to high school graduates when they come looking for a job; like they teach that kind of experience in school.

    That’s why there are internships. Of course you may have to go to college for that…..

    I started programming computers in 1968 and began doing consulting (contract) work in the 80s. A few years ago I was trying to get work and was told I couldn’t because I had been between assignments for over a year. I know how Beardo feels because I am still facing that situation in real life.

    So many don’t have jobs or work one or more jobs that don’t pay much so instead of having lines around the block for each job they make sure it is so hard to apply they tend to have only a few or no one applying.

    What it really is is an excuse for non-thinking. If someone else hires a person then the second employer need not think, or run checks, before hiring. Just pure ol’ dee lazy on employers’ parts.

    Artists get this conundrum also: how do you get space in a gallery unless you have a name, and how do you get a name without getting a show?

    Story of my life… as a writer, a community college instructor, an editor, AND an artist. Hence why I’m doing all four part-time and/or freelance, and still making less than $20K per year (sometimes quite a bit less). Wheeeeee!
