Most business leaders, when asked to advise new graduates, are encouraging, telling them that though things might be rough now, they'll pick up in time. Not AIG's outspoken CEO, Robert Benmosche.

He doesn't have much in the way of sympathy for graduates entering a difficult job market, telling Bloomberg's Betty Liu today that "you have to accept the hand that's been dealt you in life. Don't cry about it. Deal with it."
