Learning new life skills is necessary, like my brother-in-law once said. And there’s truth in it. He thinks that once a man stop learning, he ceases to be useful.
But looking for someone willing to apprentice me, for example, is another matter. I feel I’m incapable of selling myself when the interviews are being held, and that is proof enough for them, the masters to judge me inferior.
In the context of college internship, it’s surprisingly hard to find an apprenticeship vacancy for me and my friends. I just hope there’s enough left vacancies until this August.
