Just be kind and humble. You never know when you will need the help of a person who you looked down upon.
Truth be told if it comes to that point you know you are wayyyy up sh*t's creek

Build your skills and niche, know the right people and with enough luck, you can make it anywhere.

Take the position that forces you to grow.

Company pay low starting salary - “Aiya fresh grad no skill no experience cannot expect so much”

Typical boomers…finding fault in everything. Mediocore mindset.

LeahHodges I don't understand why in 2021 to work in an office when you can easily find a job remotely and get even more money. Now anyone can master almost any online specialty in just a couple of months; at least, that was the case with me. After graduating from university, I didn't know how to find a job because I left for another country and wanted to work online until I learn the language. Friends advised me to look at the labor exchange, but there are few freelance vacancies. Then I saw one site with a wide selection of remote qa testing jobs. I was fortunate to find it, as there are many vacancies on that site in different specialties. Now I work from home and earn more than my friends in the offices. I advise you guys to switch to freelance

Unregistered Don’t be afraid to fight for what you want. Potential employers are able to spot persistence from a mile away. The ability to remain steadfast when faced with adversity is a sign of a great employee. Don’t hesitate to send an email response, or even a text message, to ask why you were rejected and if there are other more appropriate jobs within the company that you can apply to instead.
