Better jobs like what? Pretty sure hiring is down across the board for high paying jobs
Someone who could've gone into consulting decides to go to law school pre-2008. Now they're sticking with the former instead of going to Yale or whatever. Trickle-down.
Eh...I don't think the smartest kids are choosing to go into finance and consulting any more now than they were during or before the downturn. It's just not as easy of a decision as it used to be. There are far fewer spots available with layoffs seemingly every quarter, the public has vilified us, and compensation is abysmal compared to pre-crisis levels, while working the same grueling 100 hour weeks.
