The Second Act

See the source image

My mom and I went to see this movie today, I recommend it to all.

It really got me thinking about why you must fit into their mold to get anywhere.

If they want you to have a MBA, you better have a MBA before even thinking of applying.

You have to have 5 – 7 years experience, don’t even think about it if you are fresh out of college.

There are numerous boxes you need to check.

But then you get to the one that asks if have a disability (Often posed in a different way since it is illegal to ask)

You have to check yes, otherwise you are lying and suddenly none of the other prerequisites matter.

In a different direction, in the movie she has to lie about these advanced degrees just to get her foot in the door.

If you are disabled in whatever way you have to lie on the form. It is often very frustrating.

At the end you have to eventually come clean, than why is everything that you have done viewed negatively?

I’m on a mission to prove otherwise. Are you in it to win it?
