Survival of the Fittest Superstes of Aptissimum
Competition, that’s the name of the game. Charles Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest promotes this idea that in society there is a need to compete to survive. As the Examiner points out, in today’s society this competition had focused and centered on the job hunt. In a day and age where jobs are limited and opportunities are looked for in any way possible, there are many that are competing to survive and get paid at any level. People with higher credentials are applying for positions that at lower levels while those who have less skills are being compared to those that are overqualified. Countless applicants are applying for one job. Ideas of dream jobs are out the window as any job is a good find. What will make one survive and stand out in this competition? Ramya Ranachandran points out that it is a combination of “luck, patience, and faith”, not necessarily something you can work on but sometimes it is just the matter of “being at the right place at the right time”.
