mtunecessary.....I came to terms with the fact that going to school doesn't guarantee me employment but it definitely guarantees me a clear vision that enables me obtain multiple ways of making money. I am I the same boat with him and in 2025 I start my PhD program

bettyphilip01.....This one has refused to think outside the box. Consequences of too much education. He now feels that the world owes him according to his academic qualifications that he's blinded to see that even without education you can still eke your way in life. .....Hio pesa anenda kufanya PhD nayo ainvest na aache ufala

carols_willy ....Ukipata diploma tafta nayo kazi,iyo kazi ikulipie degree alafu you grow to a better income position,now that second position ikulipie masters,you grow again to a better income position ikulipie masters,but me naona nkiwa hapo kwa Diploma nichukue loan kubwa invest maybe in real estate,

elly_sindani ....."He feels waisted and desperate" and yet he's aiming for a PhD.. weird

solwotany....Education is no longer a KEY to success,
