The Sociological Imagination
Privacy is an extremely core aspect of almost every individual living on this earth. Although sometimes a person needs to interact with other people in order to keep them social. Nowadays we are living in a world in which communication is very easy and convenient for almost every individual. This is a positive but yet more negative factor because due to this many people are unable to keep their life private. When people step in their professional life, they give a welcome to every challenge that will come in their way during their struggle. As a freshman, finding a suitable job is extremely difficult for almost every person in America. Despite the fact that it consists of a number of employment opportunities finding a job is still a hassle for a female in this society. This is the problem I witnessed as a fresh graduate in the field as being from the field of media finding a job in the industry of America was really hard for me as in the media industry people mostly prefer to hire males instead of females. I applied in newspapers, magazines, channels and even in different production houses but faced continuous rejection. I was from the relevant field for the jobs but due to the fact that I was a female plus a fresh graduate my resume was ignored. Initially, I became frustrated and mentally disturbed as I was facing continuous rejection from no matter where I was applying. A number of questions evolved in my mind that what if the field I choose is not right for me? Am I not capable enough to work in a reputable company? And most importantly why I am the only one who is suffering? All these questions and thoughts were making me demotivated, but when I observed things on a bigger perspective, unemployment was everywhere. Thousands of freshman and even experienced people were roaming jobless for searching a job. There was even a time when crime rate in America heavily increased due to the no employment opportunities for the freshman in the country. (Wilson, William Julius. 1996)
People suffer from the situation of unemployment with a perception that they are the only one in it. These results in serious and severe consequences for them, people get frustrated by the never-ending hurdles of unemployment. They often get into severe mental problems and keep themselves reluctant from public interaction. People who are short-tempered also end up in giving up on the struggle of finding a job. They get into various illegal and criminal activities due to their increased stress level about their living. Their decision is influenced by a number of factors like being unable to afford a shelter despite having a degree, losing relations and getting into debts. (Bluestone, Barry. 1983) However, Mill's theory about the sociological imagination helps in understanding the differences between the private and social problems of people. Most people think that what they are suffering through is only happening to them, but in reality, it turns out to be a social problem. (Cooley, Charles Horton. 2017) It is important to have a sociological imagination as it helps in determining the problems carefully. People think of other possible positive solutions instead of getting into something negative.
