thank you monke’s

I recently signed with a BB and I'm from a shitty non-target with a non-existent recruitment platform. After shameless networking, more than a thousand emails, and primarily, indulging on this forum for who knows how many hours, my dream has become reality. It was only because of the hermits and trolls on this forum, that I was able to land this gig. For that, you virgins have my eternal gratitude.

For those of you in my shoes, if I could do it, you can definitely do it. Emphasis on definitely.

If this was cringe, fuck you, and Godspeed!

I'm in the exact same boat. At one point I was laughed at and hung up on because the school I went to. That was during the shameless networking phase which is besides the point.

Point is, people will tell you it's impossible bc they gave IB a half assed effort and subsequently failed and now they don't want to see you succeed.

Anyone in the extreme non target and non diversity position.... let these stories give you motivation. You will fail and fall on your face so many times but don't fucking stop Bc you can do it if you have some tenacity.

Fortune does indeed always favour the bold. The resiliency and skills you learned/built through hard work and hustle will benefit you throughout your career. I know because I came from a similar position, and has created a foundation for future success. Also, the men on this forum are not virgins, they are just waiting for the right girl.

See exactly. And these are the same skills that diversity kids will never have, because they never needed to develop that grit and tenacity to plow through the most intense situations. They got shit handed to them on a silver platter.

Now you wonder why they all can't make MD, and the only ones who do end up being token's for PR + branding!

And the ivy league clowns did not have things handed to them because of clueless recruiters?

Congrats!! I am in the same boat. I am a non-target , immigrant and a women who just signed a offer with a BB. This is a dream come true for me. Hard-work and persistence pays off. I have the same thing to say to anyone here- never give up and believe in yourself because if I can do it anyone here can do it too.

May 21, 2021 - 7:03pm

Congrats dude. This is a big accomplishment. BE PROUD!!!

The prophet Muhammed said "The smallest reward for the people of Heaven is an abode where there are eighty thousand servants and seventy-two virgins, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls, aquamarine, and ruby, as wide as the distance from al-Jabiyyah to San'a."

May Allah grant you success in this life and an abundance of servants and virgins in the next one. Even though you're a non-target.

A bunch of racist shitheads on this forum for sure. Good luck to y'all. I bet it must be super hard, excruciatingly hard, for you non-diverse folk. You and your ancestors made it this far with merit alone. Cheers!

May 27, 2021 - 7:51pm

Okay, tough guy. I bet you come off as a nice guy in real life but you really are just a keyboard warrior who's just full of shit with low self-esteem jerking off your pain and jealousy at the success of minorities you think you are better than. Same goes for your dad, hence his constant frustration.
