In summary, there is a lot of fear and worry among individuals about colleges, grad school, work, and career prospects. The key to avoiding this anxiety is to consistently excel in all classes and exams. Those who struggle to find employment likely did not put in enough effort in their studies. However, even those with advanced degrees can still struggle to find work if they are not actively seeking opportunities. It is remarkable how much can change in a span of two and a half years.

There is a lot of fear and worry on here about colleges, grad school, work, career prospects. If you aim to be, and are, in the top handful of students in every class and exam you take, there should never be any worries. Anxiety and lack of career prospects come when you are not good enough, or don't work hard enough, at what you are doing.

Anyone with a bachelors, masters, or even a phd who is unemployed, simply isn't trying hard enough to get work.

I understand the importance of hard work and dedication in achieving success in any field. However, I must respectfully disagree with the statement that those who are not in the top handful of students in every class and exam they take are not good enough or not working hard enough. Success is not solely determined by academic performance, and there are many factors that contribute to one's career prospects.

While being at the top of one's class can certainly open up opportunities and make it easier to secure employment, it is not a guarantee. Other factors such as networking, experience, and personal interests also play a significant role in career prospects. Additionally, external factors such as economic conditions and job availability can also impact one's ability to find work.

Furthermore, it is important to recognize that not everyone has access to the same resources and opportunities. Factors such as financial constraints, family responsibilities, and personal circumstances can also affect one's academic performance and career prospects.

It is unfair to dismiss those who may not be at the top of their class as not working hard enough. Everyone's journey and path to success is different, and it is important to acknowledge and respect that. Instead of perpetuating the idea that only the best in class will find good work, we should focus on creating a more inclusive and supportive environment for all individuals to reach their full potential.
