Glenn loves talking to Mike Rowe because they share a similar views on hard work and the belief that young adults should look at more options for further education beyond a traditional four year college. You need “excitement” and “adventure,” but not at the expense of stability.
In his Saturday “Mail Call” on Facebook the other week, Rowe gave a fan some career advice that you should share with anyone looking for a new job or just now getting started. She assembled this guy in her mind years ago, and now, dammit, she’s tired of waiting!! You want lots of “change” and the “freedom to travel,” but you need the certainty of “steady pay.” You talk about being “easily bored” as though boredom is out of your control.
Which is why the existence of an ever-widening skills gap, now threatening to swallow us all, is nobody’s fault but our own.
The fact is, the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics is astonishing. I think it’s because “We the People” have convinced an entire generation that a whole category of critical vocations are simply not worth pursuing. Real People Share Real Salaries Here’s the truth: The majority of jobs currently available today do NOT require a four-year degree — they require training.
And yet, millions of students are systematically discouraged from pursuing these opportunities.The opportunities are enormous, and as a “hands-on go-getter,” you’re qualified for the work. But after reading your post a second time, it occurs to me that your qualifications are not the reason you can’t find the career you want.

I didn’t tell her this, because Claire has the capacity for sudden violence. She complains about being alone, even though her rules have more or less guaranteed she’ll stay that way. I have always been a hands on kind of guy and a go-getter. I need change, excitement, and adventure in my life, but where the pay is steady. I like trying pretty much everything, but get bored very easily.
