getting through life by who you know? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    i know many uni student that graduate and get there degrees and still don't manage to find part time or full time work e.g. retail for months even years. But there's some people who don't have a degree or life skills but still manage to find work just because they know or they parents knows the manager of that company. Would you say its all about who you know or your brains?

    You can do well if you have brains but it's definitely a lot easier if you know the right people.

    A lot of people I work with got their jobs because they know and/or are related to people who already work there. There's one guy in particular who everyone complains about but nothing is ever said to him because his mum is one of the senior managers.

    It was the same in the supermarket I used to work in.
