Why does his happen? Test are supposed to prove that this information has successfully entered my head? Why does it feel like a purge? I spill my guts out on the paper and its like i have nothing left.
True, however self tought is not worth as much on your resume as formal education.I want to say you crammed. Studying... what, 30 minutes after a lecture, using deeper questions to encourage application of what you've learned, digging into the whys of which information is useful, etc. Helps bring information into long term memory with better clarity. Loads more study techniques and whatnot.
Let's say that isn't the case: I usually forget things after a test because the subject material itself was rather bland to me. So the purpose of retention is now served and no longer important after a test. "I forget to recall that which has no need to be remembered," kind of thing.
Education sucks. At least, structured, institutionalized education does. Self-education for the win!
I know right? Fuck working for someone else. Work for yourself. But in case your current situation in life does not permit this pursuit because of how risky/unrealistic it is, then yeah, a resume helps.True, however self tought is not worth as much on your resume as formal education.

I do want to share that in my experience, I've never needed a "resume" that has all the formatting and whatnot. Not saying you don't need a good resume, but "who you know vs. what you know" really applies to my life story. Actually, that was a major case of depression for me while I was in college, realizing that I would likely end up dropping out. Took me about two years or so to realize none of that really matters, I'm still alive and doing well for myself.
The shitty part about it all? When you actually get a job, your degree doesn't mean anything. Skill > credentials. Most of your education in the workplace will come from co-workers (mentors), Google, and YouTube. Hiring managers want people with experience, but young people don't have experience, so they need credentials. How do you even gather job experience, if you can't get hired in the first place?
So dumb. The system sucks.
