If the Gods Are Not Crazy, Then Surely These Corporate Executives Are
by Alec Aaron
A Trinidad-born programmer analyst, Alec Aaron recounts his difficult experiences obtaining a career in Corporate America. Coming from a schooling background not akin to that of the United States, Aaron is often meant with confusion and distrust about his General Certificate of Education from the University of Cambridge in England, a high school called Presentation College, and the number of years he spent in high school. Also, the quality, depth, details, contents and duration of his undergrad degree are treated with derision and disdain.
More troubles come in the workplace itself, as Aaron seems often at the wrong end of a chain of blame, even after past performance suggests otherwise.
Although Aaron has since gotten to the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, he offers his experiences in the hope that other non-traditional job seekers will be more aware of the trials and tribulations of obtaining a position in Corporate America.
