Occupy Wall Street and Career Paths

I’ve been writing about the decline of real wages for young college grads, which is helping provide much of the fuel for Occupy Wall Street. Along the same lines, here’s an excellent article on Occupy Wall Street from a career perspective, written by Damian Ghigliotty, the former chief correspondent for Visible Economy LLC. Damian writes:

The last thing 32-year-old Mandy Henk expected from volunteering at the Occupy Wall Street library was an invitation to speak at the American Library Association’s 2012 Midwinter Conference in Dallas, Texas. ….Henk, a certified librarian who handles circulation, reserves and interlibrary loans at DePauw University in Greencastle, Ind., joined the movement in late September and rediscovered the role she cares most about — connecting people with information.

Take a look.
