I took B.Tech after my 12th. I scored 70% both in 10th and 12th. But in 2nd year I got back in all 5 subjects due to which I got a Year Back. I took up again as Re- Student and got all cleared. But then again in 3rd year I got backs in all 5 subjects. I took up again as an Ex-Student. Now my result is not declared and I don't think it will be. Same happened to one of my friend..her resul was not the same semester. And after she got backs in 4 subjects. So she had to leave UPTU.
I just don't understand what to do. I cannot afford to study more. I will be 24 years next month and i am not even a graduate!!
I am working as an HR trainee in a recruitment firm. My boss currently does not bother if I have a degree or not. But in future if I would want to change my Job, nobody will give me one unless I have a graduation certificate with me.
I don't understand what should I do.
I am very depressed and negative thoughts are coming in my mind.
Please help!! :(

To face challenges in life you need to strengthen yourselves.
You have to keep nourishing your skills everyday,irrespective of your qualification.
Qualification is needed at the entry level and throughout your life, you need to build your own image in the society where people recognizes you by your name and not your qualification.
Good Luck

You have identified the setbacks and what you need to work upon. That's your first win! Congratulations !!!!

Your situation is gloomy, hence you are definite to feel down and out Here's, my words:
  • Before you judge yourself further, think about those who are equally lost and doesn't even know what's bothering them!
  • Give yourself time. Graduation is a step which will happen to you. You are blessed to have a job and a boss, who is supportive. Build your professional competencies.
  • Working as an HR is a dream to many, look , you already got it! Now plan one step at a time.
  • Groom your management skills from your current job.
  • Aim for the technical skills in the long term.
  • Train and teach yourself, and then try teaching someone. It doesn't matter what level you teach. It will boost your confidence beyond your imagination. You need to build on that, so plan for it.
  • Once you are considerably, a lot more confident, plan for your degree. Take the accurate guidance for each paper at a time and clear it.
  • Industry just doesn't need young people with a degree. It needs trained professionals with strong work ethics. Do you realise, this is exactly what your situations are building you for?

There is no end date to strike the gold. So go for it! We are confident you will make far past, beyond, to what you are estimating yourself now!

Dear Friend

I have given the following story, for motivational purpose.

A jobless man applied for the position of "office boy" at Microsoft.

The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test. "You are employed."

He said." Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start."

The man replied "But I don't have a computer, neither an email.""I'm sorry", said the HR manager," If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job."

The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round.

In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repeated the operation three times, and returned home with $80.

The man realized that he can survive by this way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late. Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles. 5 years later, the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US.

He started to plan his family's future, and decided to have a life insurance. He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email.

The man replied, "I don't have an email".

The broker answered curiously, "You don't have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had an email?!!"

The man thought for a while and replied, " Yes, I'd be an office boy at Microsoft!"

Moral of the story:

M1 - Internet is not the solution to your life.

M2 - If you don't have internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.

Education is not all a barrier in your life, If you have some idea and tactfulness then you can come up in your life and you can achieve your goals.

Please bear it in your mind that no work is inferior until unless you do it whole heartedly and you will not feel bored and tiredness if you do it with passion.

Once you got the feeling that in which area you are lagging, please try to rectify yourself and try to improve yourself in those area, otherwise you can get developed in alternative areas where you have interest to learn, succeed and achieve.

All the best Friend.

Dear All,
Well said Baskar and other fellow members.
Education alone is not the stepping stone for future.
You can build your own castles without proper education.
What all you need is ATTITUDE.
Keep on trying. If you fed up with the Engg studies, just washed it off, start with some other fascinating studies .

Dear friend
Welcome to CiteHR.com !!!
I agree with the inputs from (Cite Contribution) and S. Bhaskar.
A life without any adversity or challenges is a meaningless, dull life. A person faces testing times to the extent of his abilities and overcoming such drawbacks brings out the best in a person and makes him grow.
Despair and sorrow will only chain you harder to this miserable state of life.
Now that you have been able to identify the impediments; start working on them. Take it as a commitment towards yourself and others for whom you can be of service/help.. As you keep working at it, you"ll discover yourself and your abilities growing to the extent that sooner (and not later) you"ll overcome the setbacks in your life; and find yourself emerging as a much stronger person.
I am confident that soon you"ll be a source of inspiration, strength and guidance to others who find themselves in a similar situation.
Warm regards.

Tell a person who had born without problems. we have to bravely encounter all the humps/humpers which are on our way. If you start worrying on the past, you will become insomnia (as said by you). Graduation is a certificate of your academic qualification. Not getting certificate does not mean your carreer is doomed. Failure is the highway to success.
If you study history, you will find that all stories of success are also stories of great failures. But ppl don't see the failures.
Don't lose heart. All the best.

Dear Tanaya,
We all have some people ahead of us, all the time. Its does not remain limited, to our student life and career, but beyond that. The paradox remains in perception. Whoever we presume is better than us, for sure envy something about us !
Our concept of benchmarking and measuring ourselves is skewed, beyond our very own imaginations !
Wish you all the best !
