The Beginning Of The End…

Social mobility rears its ugly head yet again, courtesy of CiF columnist, Poppy Noor:

Ernst & Young’s policy also extends beyond schooling, with new measures that prevent interviewers from asking applicants about relevant experience.

Wha..?

In a normal world, this requirement wouldn’t be needed.

Oh, to live in a normal world, once more!

But in a jobs market saturated with unpaid internships, experience has as much to do with money as intellect. Studies suggest that anywhere from 41% to a whopping 85% of jobs are filled through family connections or other networks.

And it always will be, since people remain people despite the socialists’ long march through the institutions.

Which it looks very much as though they are contemplating stopping and putting their jackboots up at last…

    Perhaps they could have got Polly Toynbee to write this article about how bad it is that someone gets a job through a family connection despite better qualified candidates being available.
    The hypocrisy is unbelievable.
