How the modern work culture encourages info-binging

The threat of not getting a job looms over the zoomers. The classic joke runs like this: “Entry-level graduate role, 5 years’ industry experience required”. 1

This is where the internet steps in. With at least 800 million videos on youtube, 2 there is scope to learn in ways that past generations simply haven’t known. A two hour python crash course might teach you the skills needed for a basic scripting gig.

What are you complaining about then?

There’s too much. With many uni students suffering from imposter syndrome, the idea of presenting unfathomable amounts of upksilling content can be paralysing.


Similar to stay at the helm if overwhelmed, my advice is to stick with it. Every new thing you learn is something useful!
