If you’ve just graduated from university and are looking to land your first job, the biggest hurdle you’d face is piecing together a resume that would (hopefully) blow your potential employer away.
A netizen named Hara Lee recently shared two screenshots of a WhatsApp conversation between a fresh graduate and her brother, where the former was looking to land a job as a Senior Content Creator at the company.
When asked to present his resume and portfolio, the fresh graduate said that he had none as he had just completed his studies and offered to give his Final Year Project (FYP) results instead.
“I send you my FYP, can? I got 92% [marks] for it, it’s good.”
But as we all know, using your FYP results as a subsitute for a resume is a no-go. So, when Hara’s brother asked for clarification as to what an FYP meant, the fresh graduate became irritated and gave a rude reply in reponse.
“It’s Final Year Project to get a university degree. Did you go to university?”
Realising that the conversation was going nowhere, Hara’s brother proceeded to ask how the fresh graduate obtained his contact number. This only seemed to vex the fresh graduate even more, who bluntly revealed his intentions in having the conversation in the first place.
Unable to tolerate the fresh graduate’s condescending attitude, Hara’s brother revealed himself to be the co-founder of the company before telling the latter to curb his cockiness.
“I wish you the best in looking for a job. You’ll need to go through intensive character development before you can even be accepted in the industry.”
Netizens were amazed and shocked by the fresh graduate’s sense of entitlement and commented on how individuals like him were giving other fresh graduates a bad name.
One wrote that his FYP scores meant nothing as he did not possess basic manners and communication skills.
Another netizen said that the fresh graduate had already disqualified himself for the job after asking the first question.
