I remembered when I was young, my parents always tell me study hard, otherwise next time no job. However, I think now study hard alone is insufficient, you prob need to be in some niche fields (eg computer programming, medicine etc) to survive
sometimes need strong networking and referrals

Can someone tell me how do you guys manage this? Do you guys just let go or throw letter and join that dream job?
Assuming Company A is your dream company and Company B is 2nd choice

Are chiu willing to burn bridges with Company B?

Cannot remove because I worked there for longer than 3 months

Yes, maybe I need to rehearse with someone, good idea

No specialist skills at all, and my generalist skills also like not very good

I also don't know what kind of jobs I'm suitable for anymore
