In the 20th Century, If anyone had a degree, they were rich and affluent. Anyone who gave any exam cleared it and could get a government job. In the early 2000s, anyone who had MBA degree was considered gold. For that matter, it’s then that even an average IT professional got handsome salary. Alas! We no longer have such privileges and no longer is landing a decent job easy. Your college degree is great, but everyone has a degree these days. The run of mill colleges have made it so easy to get a degree that no longer are graduates or postgraduates a rarity. Population has exploded so much that M-tech professionals apply for Chowkidar posts.
Unfortunately, we live in difficult times, the era where Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory holds truer than ever. So if you want a name for yourself and if you want to land a decent job, you need to acquire some skills that would distinguish you from your peers.
