NTU Masters or PhD Degree Holders Wanted for Porter and Chauffeur
After the commencement of Taiwan government’s “college graduates for corporate interns program”, National Taiwan University received an application from a company in seek of a fresh graduate holding a Master’s degree or PhD degree to drive for the boss and hold her/his suitcase. General reading of the application is intentional humiliation to NTU students. Sentiments among NTU students are mixed in response to the said offer.
What I never understand in Taiwan, is why are NTU students so arrogant. Why is holding some ones brief case and driving beneath them. It is an offer, take it or leave it. If I was hiring I would refuse any NTD graduates on bad attitude alone.
Being the personal assistant to the boss will get you to know not only that boss but many others and how the managers work. It is not an insult. They expect to become someone who has working experience’s manager??? What are they going to do, say hey I’m your new manager, please teach me how to do my job…
I went to a university ranked above NTU by more then 100 places and have degrees in Finance and Economics and I don’t feel above getting coffee for the bosses every day in the morning.
I always find the NTU’ers so painfully unfriendly and arrogant. I’m also blown away by their shock when they meet each other like its so improbable. You live in Taipei and went to the biggest school in Taipei also??? We must be twins.
