WT: Damaris rejects a scholarship and chooses to work in a bank instead because she PLANNED to become a pioneer. If she planned to pioneer, why did she even apply for university in the first place?

@Nicole Not all banks, to name a few, ones such as Morgan Stanley and or Barclays, you can go from banker to help desk eventually to project manager for infrastructure/computer migration, and eventually senior project manager, you can secure a position with Dell, HP and the like to get workers via Recruiter and for such ones the cycle repeats itself. Career paths vary for some and each path opens door to opportunity, in the end, what is important is making a living to cloth and put a roof over yourself and anyone of whom you wish to live your life with and have children with, things like that, a help would be friends and relatives.

But yeah, all that life and experience I have in this category, give back things to Caesar and at the end of the day you do what is right and needed in the eyes of God.

One thing for certain, there is a lot of hate and discrimination in the world place, I had quite a lot of that, but never has it stopped be from doing what is needed, this goes for everyone, regardless of who they are, and the examples can be seen, mainly with those who have succumb to homelessness, a community of which I take part in helping when I have the opportunity.

At the end of the day, it is the choice of the individual, one can encourage someone to do something, but it is always up to the individual, regardless of their age, race or sex, to make that choice.

Therefore, I really do not see the freak out over a choice that is not of our own, but of the individual, some people love banker jobs.

@Space Merchant thanks for your comment and the information, which I already knew the most part.  As I said before: 

"for instance, in some banks in Central America I know you have to get higher education to work in banks unless you work as a cleaning person"

And this apply even if you are going to work only as a teller. You must have a Business Administration, Accounting or similar career degree to work for them

You said:

"Therefore, I really do not see the freak out over a choice that is not of our own, but of the individual, some people love banker jobs"

I agree, specially because refering again to what I said about some banks in Central America  and having a degree,  I can't critizice my colleagues.  ?

Surely a university didn’t randomly approach her and give her a scholarship? ?

This week's WT-study:

The Watchtower - April 2018 - "Young People, Are You Focused on Spiritual Goals?"

3LCMmuyQarAVzUD-cL2IFv72tQm3gl2wayT5L0BWRiQ.jpg

Watchtower is trying to influence those who might be thinking about a university level education to drop the idea, based on simplistic and anecdotal information

First, lawyers are usually not talking to bank staff - the lawyer's assistant is.

Second, what lawyer ever says: "I'm so unhappy," especially to some random person at a bank.

That doesn't invalidate the reality that just because one person noticed that some of the millions of people who followed the career path are unhappy, does not mean that it is wrong to follow that career path or that anyone who does will be unhappy. Flawed reasoning at its worst. Notice I did not say logic, because there is no logic to their reasoning.

Who said she applied for a scholarship? Teachers always make that suggestion to bright students but the decision belongs to the student and this student declined the offer.

I have gotten jobs where there was NO OPENINGS, but because of my skill sets, they CREATED a job for me.

Me too.

And without any particular college education, just plain old self-taught. 

Using the intellectual freedom gained by pursuing rather mundane employment activities whilst "pioneering", I was able develop skills that later brought sufficient financial reward to care for personal familiy responsibilities, and then eventual financial independence to continue "pioneering" without secular constraints.

Works well for me, but I have to admit: "t'was the Watchtower made me do it, Officer!"

It also helps a GREAT deal in getting a job, if you are willing to work at poverty wages.

There comes a time in many peoples' lives when it is necessary to survive.

Been there ... done that.

That being said, I have never even heard of a Cardiac Specialist having trouble finding a job.

Being poor is nothing to be ashamed of ... but it has NOTHING to recommend it.

@James Thomas Rook Jr. At times the sad reality of all things is regardless of one's educational achievements and or accolades in order to get a job and or career position, the barrier still remains: the race, nationality and sex of the individual.

They do not tell you, but deep down inside they do care about this stuff, mainly if the guy who does the hiring leaves it to someone of his inner circle, they will judge you before you can even put your foot in the door.

Other than that, the core importance of having currency and a job is simple.

To care for yourself, an or any among your household, as well as relatives. To put food on the table so you do not starve, to but clothing on your back so you do not bare your nakedness and dwell in the cold (also you have to wash your clothes or they will smell), to keep a roof over your head because those bills have to be paid, and a list of other things, perhaps buying that new air fresher to put around the home so it smells like roses. All in all, things of that nature, to use money wisely and spend it wisely for things of good intent, which makes us different from those who are lovers of money and that Ralph Lauren, Jordan's wearing, Side strutting neighbor that likes to brag that he has a 250k Lamborghini 2018 costs more than your house - next thing you know he goes broke and files for bankruptcy and has debt.

Yeah ... if you send out only ONE resume, and cry when you are rejected.

Send out a thousand, or two thousand .... and be willing to go ANYWHERE.

There are a lot of stupid, short-sighted employers ... but the great majority of them ARE NOT!

The higher your skill set, the smaller the hiring pool is .. and the better it pays.

To use an analogy ... you use a shotgun to hunt with ... NOT a single shot rifle ... so to speak.

      The Winter Olympics? The f***ing Winter Olympics.
      So you're telling me this lady was one of the best athletes in her nation, good enough to go to the Olympic f***ing Games, a level of skill which already requires incredible dedication to reach. Which she passed on to go be a regular pioneer instead.
      And this was back in the 80s since it's been over 30 years. Well sister, you passed on a rare, once in a lifetime opportunity to do something only a handful of people get a chance to, something which apparently you had already been training to do, in order to do something you could have started the next fucking year.
      But I mean the end was probably so close, wasn't it? I'm sure you'll get extra Paradise for banging on people's doors to annoy them at 9:40am instead of the 15-ish months you'd have spent training doing a thing you apparently love to compete at Lake Placid or wherever.
      The f***ing Olympics, bullshit.

      Paragraph 16:
      One does simply not join a sports club without any knowledge of what kind of sport it is!
      "Hey newfound friend. Would you like to join our sports club?"
      "Yeah.. Of course.. What is it all about?"
      "It's no big deal."
      "Is it soccer?"
      "Nah.."
      "Curling? Dart? Diving?"
      "Join the club, and you'll find out.."
      "Is it golf? Oh man.. I love golf.."
      "Just sign here.."
      [Few weeks later..]
      "Oh.. It was MMA. I'm happy no one brought golf clubs, then.."
      With that disability to critical thinking, before signing up to anything, I wouldn't consider "Christoph's" baptism as a true sign of "strong faith"..
