  16. Work In Zimbabwe

    It’s unfortunate that in Zimbabwe a Degree means everything, much more than the value that experience and knowledge combined have. In other countries, as long as you can prove that you have what it takes to tackle the responsibilities at hand, then the job is all yours. Manje for one to work in Zimbabwe, haaa you must have a diploma from a professional institute, a bachelor’s degree from a recognised university, a masters degree as well as 5 or more years of work experience, and above all, you must be below the age of 30 hehehe.
