How to make friends after postsecondary school? What are some examples of an appropriate social setting for someone who's too old to go on an average college campus and interact with their peer group? Spoiler: Click to reveal post content It seems like there's no significant or meaningful program for people after college/university, employers in my area usually aren't willing to spend enough time on a conversation that might lead to an interview or an employment opportunity. The employers that are so reluctant to consider speaking with prospective employees, to the point they decide they don't have time for a conversation or an interview, they basically become labeled as being antisocial zones or having discriminatory employment practice, and it seems like a circular logic since the employers won't spend any time on a conversation with anyone, therefore the employees already there have to complete a higher percentage of the tasks, and that just becomes their excuse for not wanting to communicate with prospective employees. It's like a syndrome where they don't have time for employment interviews, because they already have too much other work to do, and the result being they never find other employees to help share the workload. The average response "you have to apply on the internet" makes it look like those employers don't have sufficient communication skills that they can't have a conversation with someone who's already there, and they expect someone who's already there to have a conversation on the internet, because they don't have time or they don't want to have a direct conversation through verbal communication. And that also makes it look even worse since people who don't have the conversational skills of being able to use verbal communication should be in school learning how to communicate with the other people around them, not at a workplace telling people who ask for an employment interview that they would prefer a more indirect form of communication. And then it just makes me wonder if all the employees in this locale somehow get through school without passing english language, or are the employers so determined to employ underage labourers that in this case it's not even worth doing business with those employers, they could be marked as relying too heavily on child labor and get shunned from doing business. So this has just been a description of my dilemma, seems to be a lack of employment opportunity in the locale, and also lack of academic opportunities for people younger than my peer group.
