Someone told me yesterday:
Life is pretty hard and (sometimes) unfair. Yes, that’s life. We have to fight and and take the competition. In fair competition, I feel good enough to win, even others also admit it. But yes, competition didn’t always require your academic capabilities or your skill of communication. Yaa, in unfair competition, you need strong person to back you up, so you’ll get the position.
P.S : I knew she didn’t tell me about the power of networking, but, sorry to say, she told about NIPOTISME.
