Any flop in the interview process might get you the question “I thought you said you graduated with a first class degree“.


2. YOU WOULD BE EXPECTED TO KNOW EVERYTHING IN AND OUTSIDE YOUR FIELD : Forgetting that being a first class student doesn’t make you a professor over the night, peeps would expect you to know even the unknowns once you ar a first class student.

4. YOU MUST BE SELF-EMPLOYED : The entrepreneurship noise makers expect every first class graduates to be self-employed or be an entrepreneur, otherwise, they will refer to you as a corporate slave.


5. YOU WILL ALWAYS MAKE HEADLINES : The number of first class applicants for jobs will always be a headline.
