Unemployment exists in Australia? Huh? Really?

I was talking to a person the other day and he asked me about my plans after graduation. I then replied:

“Oh, perhaps I’ll return to Malaysia after uni. Maybe I won’t apply for the permanent residency. You know, it seems really hard to get a job in Australia these days. Even Rio Tinto (a mining company) laid off hundreds of their people a few days ago. Unemployment rate is well through the roof right now. I don’t think I’ll be able to get a job here”.

To which he replied:

“Huh?? Unemployment exists in Australia??”.

I was gobsmacked…….

Moral of the story: Watch more TV πŸ™‚

The end.

    Hehe.. Usually people in develop countries are ignorant. No doubt but that. Hehe..

  4. Actually, the person in question is a Malaysian πŸ˜‰

  5. People in developing countries also ignorant…usually until it is too late… just like this case


    No wonder when we studied hard, worked hard… we ended up living hard too.

  6. Personally, apart from theoretical/academical knowledge, I’m a fair believer that one needs to expand his/her knowledge outside of that. If not, one will lose a fair bit of competitive advantage in the real world.
