Jobs Are Looking For Skills Not Transcripts
How can you overcome unemployment/ underemployment. There are many ways you can get into earning a better living. One of the ways is trying to not over rely on the degree or diploma you have. Instead, try to acquire skills that are relevant in your target job market setting. It is just not enough to be proud of your BA - BIT, BA - SWASA etc.
"Go back and look out for skills that can help you get a job or start one."
