Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The sobering point of my girlfriend: "If I don't do anything useful, I would go absolutely bonkers." People like her always need something to do. If it's something that also gives them money for their basic needs, all the better.

Last year after graduating I wanted a job because I 1) really needed the money and 2) was going absolutely bonkers by not knowing for certain what I wanted to do.

So from my personal experience I'd propose the follow-up: "Do people always know what job they want to do?" And I guess this must come with the condition that people don't live in the poverty trap constantly battling to get their daily basics together...
