MAN CAN’T FIND JOB WITH LOCAL DEGREE, ADMIRE FRIENDS WITH PRIVATE DEGREES

Recently graduated with Flexible Combined Honours and still jobless at 26(M).

Know of friends with masters can only find degree jobs with 3k+ pay. Meanwhile, friends who went to LaSalle (3 years) then Kaplan (1 year) became manager at 23.

Also, know of many who went to private schools after sec school are now damn rich after starting their business for years or already hold high corporate ranks at my age. Wonder if the normal educational path we are going through is even worth it?

We are just going to start working much later and climb the corporate rank much later than them. Same age but they are already our bosses. Besides that, our local uni certs seem nothing to companies as they are okay with hiring those from private uni/diploma (which lesser years to complete them). Moreover, uni certs are only useful for our 1st two jobs.

So is going through the normal educational path worth it? Something parents can think about for their kids.

Here are what netizens think:

  • If you don’t have the skills to start maintain (starting is relatively easy) a business or go freelance, then that is a moot point. Uni is to give you generic as well as specific skills to enter the market.
  • Don’t assume all private school students are not capable. Some were not good at A levels some just wanted a faster graduation.
  • Private college grads also have to look hard for jobs…
  • The truth is fch means nothing, what matters is your degree. A stem degree second lower can easily earn more than fch in other degrees in today’s demand. Also, degree does matter, what failed is probably your degree and interview… scroll through linkedin you notice alot of the directors have quite impressive degrees and experience.Manager is just starting point, aim bigger man…. They will soon notice their private school degree hinders their beyond manager promotion
  • “Manager” title also must see what kind of manager is that. Insurance Agent or salesman also can call themselves Senior Manager or even Director. Some people set up business and call themselves “Director” when it’s actually just a one-man show and the title is just to meet stat requirements. Joke! A local uni degree is definitely still much more valuable than a private uni degree. There’s a reason why local unis are so well recognised globally.
