I have been in school for about 15 years now and yet I still do not feel prepared for life. Out of all the classes I’ve taken in life, I can count on one hand which ones actually helped me with life skills.
I bring this up because I am trying to write a cover letter and amp up my resume and I realize that I really don’t know how to do that. Why not? This is something that we’re going to have to do for the rest of our lives and yet there’s no class about it. There are “guidance counselors” or whatever but their help is minimal at best.
We need to implement some kind of class called “Life Skills” or something that includes mock interviews, resume and cover letter assignments, computer skills, etc.
If all of this schooling is supposed to prepare us for the real world, then lets take a step back and reevaluate what that includes.
