Career Advice 

Oops! I guess it might not be such a good idea to explain ALL the possible career options to kids:


PALO ALTO -- School officials in Palo Alto are reconsidering their use of a popular speaker for an annual career day after he advised middle school students that they could earn a good living as strip dancers.

William Fried told eighth-graders at Jane Lathrop Stanford Middle School that stripping and exotic dancing could be lucrative career moves for girls, offering as much as $250,000 or more per year, depending on their bust size.


Eight-graders aren't as dumb as people think they are (well, not ALL of them anyway), and I'm sure that most of the students came away from the discussion with nothing more than a good chuckle. I wouldn't expect a lot of students to walk out thinking "Hey, stripping is a good idea for me after all!". But it's a sensitive time in their lives to hear such a thing, as many kids don't feel that great about their body image as it is.

A more holistic presentation would include testimony about how strppers ended up in the business, and what life is like for strippers when they get older. Most kids can figure things out for themselves, the trick is to present the information in a complete and straighforward manner.

On the positive side, the speaker involved will have more free time next year, since he won't be burdended by having to give any more pesky career lectures. It's important to always find the positive in any situation.
