No one is exempted with the mindset that after graduating in the university, we need to have a job. Though there are many new graduates who are lucky enough to find and land in the company where they had their on-the-job training (OJT), there are also who are unfortunate and job searching is quite a challenge for them.
Many companies nowadays are using the internet as their medium in posting available positions in their company but there are also some offices who are using tarpaulins. Through this, people can easily read which positions are available for taking.
But there is a particular advertisement that caught the attention of a netizen
One Facebook user named Deo Michael Rivera Llamas shared a photo from one of the companies who is looking for new employees. It may look like a common signage but if you look closely, you will see a big difference.
The company is accepting applicants who are 25 years old and above but the person needs to have 10 years experience. Seriously?
We can’t deny that every job opening, even entry-level, would require experience but how can they get a job if the requirement seems too lofty to be achieved.
The netizen also reiterated that the millennial generation is now the most educated yet underpaid generation. He also wanted to point out how hard it is to land a dream job because of the very steep requirements of some companies.
As expected, the post immediately went viral and one netizen even shared that there is a food stall company who requires applicants to hold a four-year degree course in HRM for their crew position.
Some also said that one of the reasons why Filipinos chose to work abroad is because of the high requirements companies impose. Some people are forced to leave their families for a better employment other countries offered.
