What makes some economically well off parents push their college graduate children to work,

even in jobs below their educational level in which they'll gain no related job experience instead of having them do internships & wait until a job educationally commensurate comes along? Some counselors & parents assert it's a gross disservice to recent college graduates to work in jobs that are below their educational level. In addition to this, they feel that the latter won't gain relevant job experience. It's opined that, these college graduates will be relegated to dead end jobs w/no prospects of advancement & it's better to wait until a related job with a future arrives.

    I agree with aesta1. As parents it's our job to create stand alone productive citizens. Any job will help grads to get their feet wet and interact with different kinds of people in different kinds of situations. You're grown up now, be an adult.

    A college graduate working in such a job/Mcjob seriously undermines & hinders his/her chances of career success.H/she's often relegated into a dead end job/poverty as no employer would want to hire him/her for a professional position.
