So, recently, I thought of going back into the education sector. I applied for the role of a subject teacher in one of the popular schools, St Finbarrs College. So, the day I went to drop my CV at the school, I was directed to the head teacher’s office who I was thankful to God is a male. (Don’t mind me, I just prefer male bosses to female bosses for now)
But as I submitted my CV, he opened and scanned through. I noticed that he was more particular about the page of my CV, which has more information about my degree. When he saw my qualification, he looked at me and I looked at him back. He then started a conversation that went thus
I realized he was just not interested in the degree and did not want to hear the “A lot” a Mass Communication degree holder like me could offer the school. My course of study even discouraged him from reading through my application; omashe, what a loss!
So, since he did not even allow me to “talk the talk” in me, he just found a quick way to dismiss me with the cliché employer word “Your phone number is in your CV; don’t worry, we would contact you!”
Note, a university degree is one’s course of study at the university, or better still, it is the qualification awarded to students after successful completion of a course of study. Read more at Wikipedia
