Job searching is a microcosm of society as a whole. Searching for a job during OCI is like a normally-functioning society. You can walk into a grocery store and hand the cashier little pieces of paper with green ink on them, and the cashier will hand you food in return. If somebody is squatting in your apartment, you can show the police a piece of paper with your landlord's signature and the police will remove the person for you. Once you step into the vale of tears, it's like a post-apocalyptic world. It's no longer about who possesses the right pieces of paper, but about who can scrounge and claw and scrape in order to survive. Just like your printed money means nothing in the post-apocalyptic world, your grades mean nothing in the vale. Whatever you have printed on a piece of paper is meaningless.
My grades and PREFTIGIOUS school meant SO much less when I was in the Vale
I went to a T-30ish school (so, TTT basically [srs]) and when I was in the Vale, I thought that was the worst decision I ever made. Now that I have a jerb lined up, I'm so fucking pumped I didn't take out more loans to go to a better school. Brospective is everything.
