Emeta.com NYC: People with Masters Degrees NEED A SECRETARY. A Narrow Minded & Nasty Perspective
Eileen's comment is very typical of those inidivuals in the Human Resource profession who are very threatened by others on the Masters level. This question was innapropriate and should of NEVER EVER exited her mouth. More information and more education are ALWAYS beneficial to the workplace ESPECIALLY when you're in a management position. The question of having secretarial assistance wasn't the issue that was being discussed.
Her behavior clearly indicates that she's very threatened and has a STEREOTYPE of people with Masters Degrees. This is the same as saying because you live in X neighborhood, you have certain qualities, characteristics or personality traits.
