A gifted graduate from medicine school, with many other useful practical skills, cannot comprehend why he has, thus far, been so unsuccessful in the job market.
Maris Radszcinszi studied Medicine for four years, and, when an opening didn't immediately become available, he threw himself back into studying, and gained a Master's in French Philosophy. He subsequently studied for, and gained a PhD. in Leadership Research in Copenhagen, where he picked up a smattering of Danish in his spare time.
As well as his native Polish, he speaks English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and can count to ten in Chinese. And that bit of Danish. He is an expert in IT, well-versed in Mathematics, law, economics, and business administration.
Other 'strings to his bow' include carpentry, pottery, and forestry management, and he has knowledge of architectural design.
But he still can't get a job. He told me:
"It's so frustrating! I've sent tens of thousands of emails with my credentials attached, but nobody ever replies. Even McDonalds didn't respond! You'd have thought someone with my knowledge and expertise would have been a valuable asset to ANY company, but no."
Radszkinsczi said that of the three interviews he has had, two of them lasted less than five minutes, and the other one was terminated at the 'handshake stage', when the interviewer took one look at the Pole and claimed he wasn't feeling well. Said Radskinczic:
"It just goes to show, it's not what you know, it's what you look like, where you're from, how you spell your name, and how much hair you've got."
