‘I applied at 18 different jobs in banks, but they all ask for 2+ years of experience. How the hell I can assure them that I have all what it takes to be for what I am applying for.’ <– Told a friend of mine, who was seeking for a job without any prior experience in bank industry.
What I want to say is this:
Many many times young people do not do something because they assume that, this work can only done by people with ‘15 years of experience‘ and newbie like us are not able to do it at all.
They unfollow their heart because of the initial hurdles which come in their way. Worse is that, we keep doing this. Even in our 70s.
I can not do this. <– Please make sure to say this after trying at least for 3 times with 3 different approaches.
15 Years of Experience is a tag, to keep creative people away and they do this to protect their jobs.
I think I have made my point, and it doesn’t need more words.
The idea of the post came into my mind, when I learned that my 24 old friend Bilal wants to design cars in next few years. He has no experience in designing cars, but he surely knows his passion “design.” Thankfully he is also helping us with the logo of Hometown, and I am amazed at what he has done so far.
This is probably the first time, he is doing and getting on his way to design cars. Incredible.
In the picture below is Max Wolff, the head designer for (Ford’s car) Lincoln, said, “Our goal is to make Lincoln look like nothing else that’s out there.”
The Ford guys knew that this 38 years guy will bring something which 58 can not.
I wish the very very best luck to my friend Bilal, who wants to do this before his 30 and to everyone of you who is not afraid of the tag ’15 years of experience’
