Saying something which is true is not bragging it’s a fact
I think people are surprised because it's like how did this girl not make every dean's list on school? And then they start acting out because there's a sense of confusion/paradox
They start acting out? What kind of people are they?Most people where I work do not know my educational achievement or background. I think that they assume it is more than it is but at this point in my career it is all about work accomplishments and experience, not education.
Hmm. Can I message you? We're both anonymous but I think discussing might give some context. For now I'll reply to your message on here.
Doing well in school or even having a higher degree does not equate to success or ability in the real worldThere are many examples of people dropping out of school to go on to be wildly successful
It took me a REALLY long time to realize that employers are looking for the experience and do not care about the accolades. I think it's because I always targeted prestigious firms-but what I did not realize is that by targeting those elite firms, I am actually going below average in some ways because I am behind in my work experience. I think that my age range which is still not yet about marriage and kids and moving on from the competitive side i. e. pure immaturity I notice people do sometimes tend to focus on who is smarter who gets more appreciation in the workforce etc.
Human nature makes us competitive, which is fine if we don't become obnoxious to others or insult others. You sounds like you're a consultant. Does your company "present" your educational achievements to the prospective customers?
