Some classmates have already asked me this, so I decided to put a 'post' on the subject. I do not know if I am the most qualified person to answer this question, however I can say with conviction that I am one of the most experienced of my class on the subject (in the land of blind, who has an eye is king), taking into account that most are under 24 years old. Another relevant point is that since 2008 I have been accompanying the labor market through specialized materials, already preparing myself to return to the labor market Monografias Prontas, Dissertação de Mestrado e Tese de Doutorado.
I would like to make it very clear that the opinions presented here are the result of my conclusions and in no way unequivocally reflects the real labor market, not least because I am not given to detours and / or demagogues and usually in my most emphatic speeches I can not express clearly my point of view, besides that, I can consider my experience to be flawed, the result of a mix of reports, theoretical knowledge and little practice (a lot of practice would be if I had more than 20 years of experience on the subject).
The text is divided into topics to facilitate the organization of ideas.
And now, what do I do with my degree?
Calm down, do not need to appeal to down, let's do as our great friend 'Jack' ... "Let's go parts:"
1) In which course / science did you graduate?
1.1. Unapplied humanities (history, philosophy, letters, pedagogy and the like), I'm sorry to say that you do not have much choice. Now you are full of dreams about the science you studied and a neighborhoodist feeling about it, but most graduates in that area will eventually disappoint, because willing or not, there is no hunger for knowledge that lasts before the eternal lack of money (money can be capitalist stuff now, but you'll soon wonder how to give a sustainable future to your family). In less than 5/10 years you will start to martyr yourself for not choosing another option. I speak this with property of those who have already studied history and today I am at the end of my degree in Economics. In my class that graduated in history, except for two who entered the master's degree, the remainder or is completing another graduation, or used the diploma as a springboard for public competition and nothing else, and this applies to other sciences in that area that follow this same way. My advice is, if you were not that student who lived hanging in the teacher's bag (since the rules for masters selection in these areas have a very subjective character), start studying for a next college entrance examination or for a competition. If what I'm talking about is silly, think of the following; about 400 historians at least form in Maringá and region (this data is valid for the other sciences of the area), how many will be absorbed to receive something around R $ 10 to R $ 15,00 hour / class? Something close to zero. Search? Private sector? Make no mistake, we are in Brazil Monografias Prontas, Dissertação de Mestrado e Tese de Doutorado.
1.2 Applied Social Sciences (Economics, Accounting, Administration, Law ...): You are in a slightly better situation than those who graduated in Humanities not applied, with an advantage for Economics and Accounting, but I will speak individually of each one. Law: There is a theory that you measure the governability of the country by its number of lawyers, let alone worse. And this is the case of Brazil, a state tied to its own inefficient bureaucracy and will always have a vacancy for lawyers, but only for those who pass the OAB exam, which serves only to restrain excess labor and try not to cause excess supply in the industry, but despite the derogatory tone that I put these words, in my opinion this is good, it avoids bumps. Administration: I consider the profession important, however, the permissibility of the Representative entity of the sector to allow open courses of the area in any corner bar and, moreover, allow endless ramifications presses the bump of professionals of the category and makes their professionals worth every less. Another point that testifies to the inefficiency of the representative entity is the passivity before the loss of space for other professions like psychology and publicity. Accounting: if everything goes wrong, you can act as an autonomous, because knowing how to work with mastery in the area will always have jobs to perform, but the favorable points for the accounting professional are the public tender, the constant need of the private market for these professionals and mainly a representative class entity. Economics: In this area it will depend on the focus of the graduate, if he wants to run companies, he has entered the wrong course and advised to take advantage of the knowledge in public competition, which is also in vogue, given that most federal and state contests have been collecting statistics and economics and as a friend who passed the selection for civilian police says, in these contests decorating law is easy, but knowing them complex economic variables, only economist himself ("we who had other different degrees we have to study to compensate for the inefficiency in economics, while you already master this pineapple "), not to mention the specific competitions for economists Monografias Prontas, Dissertação de Mestrado e Tese de Doutorado. The economist's role is to work mainly on macroeconomic issues (the economist bridges the company and the market in the private sector, which allows a much broader view of the market) and for professionals who want this area, I guarantee that there will be no shortage market, mainly because in economics few professionals are formed, that is, this market is the least bloated among all other areas of human applied. "I will not perpetuate myself in speaking of the area, for I shall resume the discussion at other times."
My advice is, if you've graduated in business and are looking for the private sector, it's time to start preparing for future MBA's, postgraduate courses and maybe in a few years you'll get some good placement. The second option for administrators is the competition, but it is a good idea to start preparing very early because, no matter how much you say you know accounting, law or economics in your degree, the reality is that these topics are seen very superficially , in addition to competing with more than 1,000 trainees / year in Maringá and Region. For lawyers pass the OAB exam, if not tender. For accountants I recommend the contest and / or migrate to larger markets. If graduation is economy I recommend competition, and for those with risk appetite and stomach, I recommend the private sector in large centers and I guarantee you will get good placements.
1.3 Exact: You're done! Look for great companies, you will surely have places for you. I recommend the TRAINEE programs, to become familiar with the routines of your profession and good luck, the world is yours!
1.4 Biological: I do not know the area very well, so I will restrict myself to talking only about Physical Therapy and Physical Education. About physical therapy what I have to say are experiences based on reports. It is a swollen market but with little in the area for competitions, my recommendation is to specialize deeply in the segment of physiotherapy, a good example is in aesthetics, since many people have been gaining a lot of space with technical courses and you already have the differentiation to have a degree. I have some clients who own gyms and some acquaintances in this area and I usually hear that everyone will be a personal trainer, but is there a market for everyone? Monografias Prontas, Dissertação de Mestrado, Tese de Doutorado The answer is a resounding NO. Specializing in some segment is one way, but a common fact among these professionals is not getting students / clients by an obvious error, not knowing who the public is demanding their services. I will not dwell on this discussion, but think about it, who demands "personal", middle-aged man full of preconceptions, or middle-aged women extremely concerned about aesthetics, take this foolish example and think not to shoot for but instead spend their efforts on certain targets. How many physical education professionals specialize in seniors, for example?
2) Where did you graduate?
It makes a difference? YES!!!!!!!
Firstly, I will divide the Universities (Colleges) into three main groups:
a) "Good": In this group I insert a large part of the publics some rare private ones like FGV and PUC-SP.
b) "Medium": I will not mention names to not fill my bag, but they are those "more ordinary beautiful". They usually have a good campus and ... (I'll leave it to continue the atonement below).
c) "Ruins": These are those that form students with a "touch of cash" and in it I classify mainly those that exclusively offer quality distance education of the least doubtful and allow aberrations like graduations in two years and distance engineering course. Nor am I going to waste my time talking about these institutions, because I consider that to finish the graduation in an institution of these is practically the same thing as to have done nothing.
Comment: If you could give me the direction of the MEC !!!
I could fill in the next few lines with data on how many of the graduates in good institutions are more likely to pass contests, or those who get a good job placement, but I would like to focus on the more practical aspect of the thing Monografias Prontas, Dissertação de Mestrado e Tese de Doutorado.
1) What differs from good-quality, "median" educational institutions?
Usually the "medians" (private) have better classrooms, better infrastructure and are more beautiful, but an essential aspect is not contemplated, transforming the student into a true academic. Anyone who believes that a university professor has to explain everything to the student "tim-tim por tim-tim" is extremely mistaken, university is not "collegiate" and it is the student's duty to run after knowledge, the teacher's duty is to teach " way of stones "for the student and he must walk by himself. Translating all that I said above, think of the following: If a teacher at CESU ... fails half of a room he will be dismissed, whereas in EMU students will return the following year to do the same subject with the same teacher and this is bad ? No. 'Ceteris Paribus' the discipline that reproves so much are the most difficult and normally students are not always so committed to the disciplines taught, so, to pass the academic will have to "grate", which in the medium / long term transforms these students into more skilled professionals. Another relevant aspect is that in the Good Universities, if you do not respect the teacher, you will probably be disapproved and, one more lesson is taught, it is no use for Dad to intervene, or to put pressure on the teacher, first of all one must respect the hierarchy . Another relevant point is that the Boas are more democratic (incredible as it may seem) allowing a greater plurality of ideas, if I am saying it is a lie, try to set up a DCE in a medium-sized university and criticize emphatically the direction of the institution.
In short, what I mean by all this is that in the Good Teaching Entity the student is much more charged than in the "Median" university, so he will usually be better prepared for the real world.
2º) It's beautiful what I said, but in practice it materializes?
Yes. But once it could spit out an avalanche of data, but we are going to two practical situations, one of academic classification, another one of insertion in the private market.
a) In the face of the ENAD exam, the selected "Medians" academics are pressured to achieve good grades and private tutors, psychologists, scholarships for postgraduates and even water and distribution booths are at their disposal. of materials. The students of the 'Good' University selected for this evaluation (and I have already been selected for both courses in which I studied) do not suffer any pressure, in fact this is taken for granted, has no support of any kind, minutes before without studying anything and, in many cases, are hangover from the previous night; and still get the best grades. Why that? Simply because they are required in class Monografias Prontas, Dissertação de Mestrado e Tese de Doutorado.
b) I will now cite a case in the private sector, preserving the names of the protagonists. A friend who graduated from EMU worked at a large local company, when he registered for an interview with a multinational, was approved and today holds a position of considerable importance in the new company. I asked him, when he was hired, how was the selection process and what was decisive for the conquest of the vacancy. At that moment he did not know for sure what the answer was and then sought out the Company's HR and in an informal conversation he got the answer. In the first screening the selectors separate the graduates in good universities and of these few left, of these few was observed their complementary activities and their social networks. After that last screening they called the candidates for the personal interview. That is, without a good graduation he would not have passed even in the first phase.
In short, what is clear is that it makes a difference where the scholar has studied, perhaps not for domestic markets where the concept of "enterprise" still persists, but to increase flights, this makes all the difference. Finally, imagine the following, the 'HeadHunter', or even the Company picker where you are applying for the position, probably graduated from a good university, so, unconsciously or not, he will not want to hire half- consider the competence of the candidate or even think like this: "Well, I've done a lot to be here, do you think I'm going to call this guy who graduated from any organization just to take the Diploma? (It may be to present this reasoning, even by the discriminatory tone, but believe me, this exists. And, moreover, I do not take reason out of this reasoning, even though I do not agree). Finally, if these Teaching Institutions are so good, why do their students boast of having professors from major universities? Does not the Institution hire its own graduates?
3) Does it mean that completing teaching in a 'good' university will guarantee the 'happily ever after'?
No. You will have greater chances and ability to face the real world. But make no mistake, go to other centers, because where the models of retrograde companies reside, the student graduated in better institutions will have a better chance of being hired, however, by the price of those trained in bad institutes, since these companies do not they look for talents but labor. Keep in mind that cool companies are commonly concentrated in centers of excellence, and in them you will be noticed for your competence and dedication.
