【作文范文】
首段:图画描述
A simple but enlightening cartoon is given: a master is taking an interview for a job; however, the employer, looking at his resume, responds, “Sorry, kid… Your resume looks good, but you only have a master’s degree … All the other applicants are Ph.D.s!”

二段:图画主题+现象+意义
Evidently, the boss’ attitudes toward degrees can be naturally associated with their blindness in job interviews. Actually, if employers intend to look for ideal applicants, it is significant to consider job-hunters’ authentic competence: professional skills, teamwork spirits and strategic minds. Several examples can be given: professional skills help one to do specific jobs well; teamwork spirits help a team to work efficiently; strategic minds help one to gain a promising future in jobs. It is these qualities that enable employees to contribute a lot to the further development of their firms or organizations. As a matter of fact, intelligent employers in large numbers have come to realize the significance of applicants’ comprehensive qualities. However, in contemporary society, it is common phenomenon for a host of job-hunters to be discriminated in job markets, just because of their lower degrees.

尾段:观点+建议+展望
Employers should bear in mind: degrees do not mean one’s competence. I, as a college student, am convinced that it is of great necessity for youngsters to enhance not only our degrees, but also diverse capabilities.

参考译文
以上图画简单却发人深省:一个大学硕士正在进行工作面试,但是雇主看着他的简历说,“对不起,孩子,你的简历看上去很好,但是你只有硕士学历,其他的应聘者都是博士学历!”
很显然,老板对学历的态度反映了他在面试中的无知。实际上,如果雇主想招到理想的员工,重要的是看应聘者的真实才能:专业技术,团队合作精神和战略思想。举一些例子:专业技术能让一个人做好某种特定的工作,团队合作精神让工作有效率,战略思想让一个人赢得美好的职业前景。这些品质让员工更好地为公司或组织的将来发展而奋斗。实际上,许多聪明的雇主意识到了应聘者的综合能力的重要性。然而,在当今社会,许多应聘者因为低学历而被歧视是普遍现象。
雇主应谨记“学历并不等于能力”。作为一个大学生,我坚信我们年轻人不仅有必要提升学历,还要发展多方面的能力。
