Responding to Mathew Omorogbe

Hello Mathew,

Let me be the first to say how proud I am of you. You have beaten the odds by coming to a new country, working hard, and attaining a degree to better your life. That takes courage, resilience, faith, and a lot of patience. I know your family is incredibly proud of you as well. The Bible tells us that ‘Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever (1 Timothy 5:8, NIV). However, this verse is often misquoted to mean that you have to meet all the basic needs of your extended family. You have your own children and spouse; they are your first responsibility. The extended family comes in second, and you are not obligated to meet all their basic needs. Doing so will encourage dependence; instead, you can work at helping them to become independent: Proverbs 6:6-8 (NIV) Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!  It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.

You can also think of making investments back in your home country that will offer a source of income to your parents. In Africa, small businesses can comfortably support one’s elderly parents. For example, even if you are working at minimum wage, that is still a lot in Africa. You could consider saving up and getting a public transport taxi for your parents, and that will ensure they get daily income. When your parents get daily sustenance from their taxi, you will have enough money for your children and spouse. It is just one suggestion.

As for getting a better job with an MBA, I have faith that you will. Remember that it is God who started the journey with you, and He is too faithful to fail you. Philippians 1:6 (NIV), being confident that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Remember the widow that went to Elisha to complain that her dead husband’s creditors had come to carry off her sons as slaves? Elisha asked her what she had, and she told him that she had a small jar of oil. At the end of it all, that small jar of oil is what got her out of debt and she lived comfortably on the remainder. Your MBA is your jar of oil; it will get you to new heights and levels that will glorify God in your life.

Question

I need help responding to Mathew’s response to the discussion post. Thank you

Matthew Omorogbe

Hello class,

I want to congratulate everybody for being able to make it to the final week in this last course before our graduation as MBA students. It is not by our power that we have made it thus far, neither is it by might, but by the grace of God (1 Corinthians 15:10). King Solomon the wise says, I return and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all (Ecclesiastes 9:11, KJV). I must return all glory to God who made it possible for me to be a prospective MBA graduate. In a family of 13 (8 males and 5

females), I am the only person to have attempted a master’s degree level of education. God has distinguished me in a way that words alone cannot sufficiently express. I give Him all the glory and adoration.

According to the prompt for this discussion, “transitions are difficult because they require that we let go of somethings and adopt a new understanding”. My transitioning from being an MBA student to an MBA holder is a task that I must face and work out with diligence. I am conscious of the fact that so many eyes are on me to get a job that pays a masters’ degree salary so that I can help others. I want to be of help to as many that I could, but I must pay my student loan while thinking of helping other family members.

However, it has not been easy getting a job that matches my educational level since I came to the United States. As of now, I am paid minimum wage even with my first degree. I have applied for several jobs that require first degree level of education, but to none avail.  The challenge is that my first degree is from a third world country, and my job experience is also from a third world country. Most organizations brush it off when they see that the education and the job experience are not from here. Some interviewers will say, I am impressed by your qualifications and your work experience you will hear from us. When I follow up with them after waiting for some time, they will simply say the best candidate has been chosen for the job. Some honest ones will simply say your work experience is not from here.

The question is, will my MBA degree make the difference. I suppose it will, but applying for a job with an MBA degree without corresponding work experience to match is difficult. Most MBA jobs I have seen require a minimum of 2 to 3 years of work experience. Even if it is not an MBA job, I need a reasonable job that will enable me to acquires the experience that I need before I start my business. Please, I am looking forward to your contributions. Your wise thoughts and godly counsels are welcome. “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors, there is safety” (Proverbs 11:14, KJV).
