A 33-year-old lady identified as Dr Helana Darwin has taken to Twitter to express sadness over being unemployed despite having two masters degrees and a Ph.D.
Dr. Darwin said she feels like she went about her 20s all wrong, adding that higher education may be overrated.
She wrote: "How am I 33 with two MAs and a Ph.D. and still so precariously situated on the job market? I feel like I went about my 20s all wrong... maybe-just maybe-higher education is overrated?"
According to her, being unemployed transcend disciplines, adding that it is systemic.

Effiong took to her LinkedIn account to reflect on the career-changing decision she took a year ago.
She said she had an amazing career in broadcasting for seven years but the Nigerian military has always held a funny mystery to her.

"Apparently, In the military, there are only 3 women out of 10 people. Just 3! (that is fast changing I must say)."
According to her, she told herself that she had to be among the 3%. She added: "That was the turning point for me.
Along with my flair for a more adventurous journey, a great broadcasting career, and my desire to be among the 3 of 10, I made the decision to switch careers.
