Memo to the Class of ’09: A tough job market shouldn’t make B-school grads compromise on their ethics— now or at any point in their careers

Memo to the Class of ’09

http://www.businessweek.com/managing/content/may2009/ca20090519_540128.htm

Many college graduates upon graduation will get a lot of advice on what to do when it comes to job selection; from parents and family members to friends and seginficiant others. But, as this article shows that people who are not entering this business job market are facing much hardship due to the fact that the people who’ve came before them have really messed up the market. Ethics are a huge issue in today business society and business men and stockbrokers are two of the least trusted jobs in the nation.

There are three main things that all students who are now entering the business world should do:

1) listen to the whispers

2) keep your promises

3) speak up!

If everyone who is now entering the real world would follow the three roles listen above there shouldn’t be much more dishonesty in the business world any longer. The big issue is that all the “new” people who are entering the world of the fast pace market are afraid to speak up, and tell people that they are doing something wrong; even if it’s your boss. There should be a line that we all must draw when its come to moral and ethical issues in the world of business. We seldom if ever speak up against wrong doings in today society and I believe that if all recent graduated speak up and follow the steps above that we should be on the right path to the rise of greater ethics in our nation today.
