Required Work Experience
The business studies department at State University will now require all students enrolled in its program to complete one semester of work experience in a local corporation or small business. It is felt that students will benefit from this work experience by developing leadership and organizational skills that would not normally be learned in a classroom or campus setting. Furthermore, the relationships that students establish with the company that they work for many help them to secure permanent employment with that company once they have completed the program and graduated.
Now listen to two students discussing the announcement.
(man) Read this announcement?
(woman) Yeah, and I disagree. I don’t think it’ll actually help students.
(man) Really, why not?
(woman) Well, they talked about leadership and organizational skills, but that’s not really the kind of work you do. Like my elder brother’s had the kind of job they’re talking about, and typically you are just there to do the basic tasks like typing or filing stuff, nothing very meaningful.
(man) Oh, so you wouldn’t actually learn anything new.
(man) I guess I see what you mean. But what about the other point they make?
(woman) About this helping us after we graduate? I don’t agree.
(man) How come?
(woman) Well, the problem is that there’re lots of other universities in our area that have the same requirement. So there’re lots of other students at these positions.
(man) Yeah, I guess I haven’t thought of that.
(woman) 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 of the business graduates in the city that will be looking for full-time work.
(man) Hmmm, I see what you’re saying.
The woman expresses her opinion about the new policy. State her opinion and explain the reasons she gives for holding that opinion.
The business apartment will now require all students to have one semester work experience in a local company so that students can develop leadership and organizational skills and may secure permanent employment after graduation. The woman in the conversation doesn’t think the policy will help students. Firstly, the students don’t do the work that can develop leadership and organizational skills. Typically, students are there to do basic jobs such as typing and filing. Secondly, there are many other universities in this area that have the same requirements so there must be a lot of students holding the same positions. So after graduation, the competition for business jobs will actually be fierce.
