      Lol "Waaaaaah I have to put in my time before I can add enough value to justify a high salary".

      But yeah, the answer to the poll is yes. Entitled Zoomers can get fucked.

      lol you absolutely have 22 year old co-workers making 6 figures at Microsoft - most of us work just as hard as the next person, no one wants to be put at a disadvantage when there's a horde of competition

      public school kids with 3.2's can land a six figure job, it's not just elite institution 3.9 kids. obviously top tier talent is (and should be) rewarded. However I've seen peers who worked harder than me get lower compensation with terrible hours

      It's about working smarter not harder. It's about what you optimize for and whether or not you can execute. Luck plays a large role too, but no one is entitled to anything.

    You are too picky. Find a not worth applying for company to work till you have experience, then apply for your dream job.

      too much competition unless I'm literally raising some no-name companies revenue by 50% every year not worth it

      we might have different definitions of "not worth" - it probably comes off as "reeeee I want Google I want Google we love fortnite" - but I'm not against other "good" options. I'd work anywhere decent as long as I'm gaining skills. I hate staffing agencies and these Ponzi crap companies. My friends who took those jobs because they needed money are undeniably screwed. My current role is incredibly stagnant, 3 years isn't going to give me the opportunity to work hard or add value that will matter later in my career. hence my post.

    Sounds entitled. What exactly can you bring with 0 yoe? Start at the bottom, like everybody else and learn on the job.

      no one wants to be stuck. too much competition to have bad companies on your resume or have a job where their skills deteriorate, you'd fall too far behind the layers of new grads getting hired at Uber, etc. it's the truth

    Look for a role in municipal government, a local web hosting company, a hospital or a bank. Or any organization where there are either regulatory constraints or low profit margins. Learn to work efficiently, to develop good working habits and to produce value at scale. Make a difference at an organization that could appreciate and recognize you. Get at least three good years of experience in, and then apply to jobs that ask for five years of experience. You'll probably get an interview at least, the rest is up to you.

    OP, as a new Grad from a tier 2/3 college in India I was invited by LINE Corp(pays more than Google) and Amazon Berlin for interview.

    I think luck, timing, good profile is what matters while applying.

    The good ones got a job offer last year so will have to start a bit slower. Not a huge deal and has been much worse. Work hard and grow experience.

      OP
      it's not that bad but it's kind of a pain how your two options are University/Internship and middle management / senior engineer roles with nothing for the in between. It's demotivating and makes you feel stuck. Company loyalty isn't rewarded like it was 50 years ago so there really isn't a point staying in a stagnant role

    Did you do any internships? Thatโ€™s how most big companies hire new grads these days.

    Your statement is not true. Those are shitty companies. FAANG hires new college grads, a lot through internship and some non-interns.
