Talent and Skills Cursed by Reference System

Standard

 

“WE DO NOT HAVE A DEMOCRATIC MEDIA, I WROTE THIS PIECE TO ALL NEWSPAPERS YET NO ONE DARED TO PUBLISH. SO I DECIDED TO BRING IT OUT” Fatima Hasan Zaidi

 

Dream big to achieve big in life, all my 16 years of education circled around this phrase; but nobody told me that I m living in a country where degree, qualification, talent, skills and experience does not matter. It is an insignificant little thing cursed by the reference system.

Where ever I go with my resume with massive experience in my relevant subject, where my publications, skills, experience and my hard work is the only reference I have. I m not entertained by the authorities because either they do not trust in themselves and are afraid to see the resume and hire on what their mind says or they do not have the potential to do so.

All they need is a strong living being to be at the back of the one who wants to do something and they fail to understand that the reference won’t be putting in effort in the work but the person who stand firm with a CV.
I wonder if reputed organizations ever change their policies and optimistically hire the graduates on behalf of what they are and not what their sources are.

  1. Totally agreed! – Pretty Old school culture it became since corruption doesn’t comes in terms of money all the time.
    Its somehow the fault of educational sector too. Students we are making and generating aren’t the ones companies and organizations are looking for. Every organization doesn’t stick to the thumb rule of bookish knowledge and less practical experience. Just because we are graduated and mastered by those who never worked in those fields themselves, for what they are training or teaching you to become.
    Completing 16 – 18 years of education, again brings you to another START – where you need to begin from scratch once again in order to struggle and come up to the level of our education we got. that’s why company’s usually ask for 5-7 years of experience but what they don’t understand is from where we will get the experience if nobody would let us in 😀
    Anyhow, Best of luck and May God bless you a good carrier start!
    Regards,
