Like they say desperate situations call for desperate measures and being unemployed is one of them. We all have been in that situation where we have to do all the convincing it takes to woo an interviewer. One time or another, some of us can recall using the ‘I can work under pressure’ phrase to impress an employer when you clearly can’t.
Many people nowadays are working in places or positions they’re not suited for just to avoid being unemployed. One twitter user wrote of how unemployment can humbling and her tweet generated a lot of hilarious comments.
Unemployment can humble you.
You will find yourself applying for a Dentist position with a degree in Marketing and tell them you are a fast learner.😂😂😂

I’m a Mechanical Engineer who has ventured into teaching and now back to crops and livestock farming. But I’m not giving up on that lucrative job in my field. As long as I’m making money, it’s all good.
