How will you seek a job if you don't have any degree?
A few days ago, the public saw a 23-year-old man, who just studied until sixth grade, kneeling down on the ground for hours in Ha Noi's Nguyen Chi Thanh Street asking for a job. He held a board in front of his chest which said that he wanted to become a salesperson.
A lot of local newspapers reported the incident. Some people said he was picky because he just wanted to work as a salesperson and not other jobs while he has no degree. Others said he was quite intelligent because after the local media reported what happened, some recruiters might have known about him and maybe he could get a job he wished for.
What do you think of the situation? How would you seek a job if you didn't have any degree or qualifications? Do you think he was embarrassing himself by kneeling down? Would you be willing to do anything when you are desperate to get a job?
