It takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. The average college student spends 15 hours per week studying. If, and only if, that student spends 52 weeks a year doing this, no break, no vacation, they have only gained 3,120 hours of knowledge. Add on to that the 1,560 hours of class time, they still are nowhere near experts in their field. And yet, most organizations these days expect a student to have experience in the field of study before they will hire them. Is it just me, or am I the only one who sees a severe disconnect here?
