They usually just end up churning through candidates.

    In general I do think STEM educations with more liberal arts exposure are good for training a workforce as opposed to straight liberal arts developed critical thinking, but this idea of entitlement "i got my degree where's my job?" goes back to what more and more older professors complain about with the younger generation. People go through the motions and expect the plate to be handed to them, they don't actually pursue things of interest. You mentioned that you actively stay ahead of the curve, part of that is self interest in staying ahead, part of it is the developments are interesting. Nowhere in there do you take the stance "if my company wants me to learn that they should send me to a class".

    The worst part of it is comparatively while other countries students are usually strictly rote learners who have a hard time adapting to research learning at least they have instilled discipline to master a subject. Our current educational models don't even try to do that anymore leading to work ethic issues.
    I agree, especially the part about "I got my degree. Where's my job?" I have no degree. My knowledge comes from working my ass off to learn everything I can to be employable. I've jokingly had the education portion of my Facebook profile set to University of Barnes and Noble for my undergrad, and University of Google for my masters. At the end of the day, a degree doesn't mean **** to me. Can you write good code? Cool. Here's an offer letter.

    Your comment also brings up an interesting tangent regarding interesting developments and ethics. Google has contacted me twice now and I've turned them down both times. While they're doing interesting work, I'm vehemently opposed to their mission to organize the world's data. While I know it's going to happen with or without me, I want no part in the creation of tools and algorithms which could aid a surveillance state. I wish more STEM workers would take a step back and consider the ethical implications of working on certain "interesting" things.
