2. Day dreaming about power of university degree

In fact: You are wrong. Examples shown on newspapers about the fact that students graduating with excellent level have to work as a maid or a worker. Nowadays, it’s extremely rare to prove meaning of the couple “university degree and good job”. It’s really hard to find a suitable job because most of good jobs need experienced and competent staff. Moreover, what you learn from university just matches 10% with reality.

4. You always think that you’ll just apply to big companies or foreign ones after graduation

Otherwise, if you are unlucky, you might be applying to a lot of companies but the probability of being called for an interview is really small. Furthermore, almost students like to change jobs frequently and desire to find better ones (except some stable jobs relating to state agencies).

6. Make sure that your future employer and colleagues will admire you when being introduced of your bachelor’s degree at good level

In fact: No one cares your material degree because it just proves that you are not illiterate. The issue that a recruiting officer cares is candidates’ working experiences. If you have just graduated from university, you are standing at starting point, which means that you should put your degree down and jump to job immediately.

7. You will get an appropriate job with what you learn at university after 4 studying years
In fact: A lot of students have to accept unsuitable jobs. You can’t be stubborn in finding a dreaming and appropriate job. Life changes every day, so you have to adapt yourself to new circumstances.
