I always felt like a failure on my career.
For real, every day since 2012 when I walked into Credit Suisse as my first employer in investment banking - I felt like I would be fired at any moment. Simply because I don’t like this horrible corporate theater where people play roles to succeed.
Fast forward 10 years and I don’t know if I changed much emotionally. I still have a job (now in a startup) and I still don’t play the game. I pay the price for that though.
This question is for entrepreneurs: I wonder if there’s really this ‘unemployability’ concept (and if I’m in the wrong game) or if the game of entrepreneurship is similar, but the hats change (instead of having bosses and peers you have clients and investors)?
Do people that say that they are ‘unemployable’ hide some sort of immaturity of dealing with the strategic positioning that any professional project (either a job or having a business) requires?
