Now listen to two students discussing the announcement.
Did you read this announcement?
Yeah, and I disagree-I don't think it will actually help students.
Really? Why not?
Well, they talked about leadership... and organizational skills...
but that's not really the kind of work you do.
Like my older brother's had the kind of jobs they're talking about...
and typically you're just there to do basic tasks like typing or filing stuff-nothing very meaningful.
Oh, so you wouldn't actually learn anything new...
I guess I see what you mean-but what about the other point they make?
About this helping us after we graduate? I don't agree.
Well, the problem is that there are lots of other universities in our area that have the same requirement . . .
so there are lots of other students at these positions.
Yeah, I guess I hadn't thought of that.
So even if you take a position like this in a company while you're still a student, once you graduate, the competition for permanent jobs will be impossible...
I mean, there just won't be enough jobs available for all the business graduates in this city who will be looking for full-time work.
Hmm ... I see what you're saying.
