Everyone knows those kids who go to non-targets who do absolutely nothing to help their job situation and freshman summer or sophomore summer don't do anything, but maybe get some manual labor job at best (cashier, waiter, etc...). Many of them probably have average grades and just party a lot.
Kids at targets and semi-targets are fighting skin and bones for topgigs and MM offers. Even so, inevitably some kids at targets and semi-targets get screwed. The majority of people I know at non-targets don't think about networking and really the uphill battle they face to get good jobs. So with the economy so brutal, what do those at non-targets who don't network do?
