I don’t think going to the university is necessary

Hi, guys welcome to your Thursday dose of manierabydale. I hope you all are fine. I am so excited! this week has been so sunny and that just puts a smile on my face. I also want to welcome all my new subbies to the club! I hope you guys enjoy staying here.

I have had a good think of late, how necessary is it to go to the university? And this isn’t a rhetorical question!

When I finished uni, I had the illusion that i would just finish and jobs would be waiting for me. My aim was to get at least a 2:1 but would rather have a 1st so that once I apply to any company they would take me because I am so brilliant. But that was not the case.

I noticed that most jobs want more than just having a distinction or merit, they want more and I get it. In my class, I reckon that at least 50-75 people could have graduated with a good/great grade so what sets me apart. This exactly is what these companies look for. what makes you unique.

This is a very difficult question to answer and put into words. As I looked further into these companies, I noticed that what they really want to know is the experience you have had in the field. The more experience you have had, the better your pedigree. And you can’t blame them because this saves them time which equals money.

Now let do the maths: you want to be an engineer, you went to uni for 3 years and finished at 21 then did a masters and finished at 22. If you are a Nigerian like me you go for your NYSC or take a year to travel around the world. Because why not! Now you are about 24. You are back and now want to settle down and get life started, you apply for a job and they ask you for experience. Really!!!!! How do they expect you to get experience when you have been in school all your life. What time did you have to practice as an engineer? Does this mean going to school is a waste as you would expect that after spending so much money and incurring so much debt you should atleast get a job that is worthwhile? To be honest we should all just be apprentices because it saves you from going throug those rough yet enjoyable nights of doing an all nighter

Do you notice that people without a degree grow faster as they have enough time to grow within the industry. They choose and take courses to boost themselves higher along the way to get promoted and BAMB, they are there.

To be honest, if you work for a company it takes you forever to make enough money to have the good things of life. You get to buy a Lamborghini when you are old and can’t even bend enough to get into it without your back hurting.

These are just my own thought because it seems to be that school is getting outdated. Did you know you can learn some of the things you learn in school online without incurring debt? At the end of it all , the only thing one needs is the willingness to succed. Thats all you need.

With social media and the internet one can be a millionaire at the age of 25.

Lets all start thinking of how we can make money with our craft without so much capital.

I know this was lengthy but I hope you enjoy the read and it motivates you.
