World's cleverest woman can't find a job

A Bulgarian woman rated the world's cleverest wants a British firm to give her a job after spending two years on the dole.

Bulgarian Daniela Simidchieva, a mother of three, has five Masters Degrees and an IQ of almost 200.

She's listed by the country's Mensa office as the world's cleverest but despite sending off hundreds of applications she still hasn't found a job.

Her IQ is the same as that of chemist Marie Curie who was the first person to win the Noble Prize twice but cannot even get a cleaning job.

Daniela said: "I love learning, but I also want to work. In the last 44 years I have studied economics, education and sociology at universities in Bulgaria and Britain.

"I am qualified as an industrial engineer, as an English teacher and as an electrical engineer as well as having my five Masters degrees.

"But in Bulgaria I have found that employers do not want clever employees. Even when I had a job, the largest salary I ever managed was just 90 a month."

Maybe employers are put off by her aptitude and feel she could damage the company with a revolution! ... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

This reminds me of the current situation here in my country, where a person with a short course in programming gets the job over someone with a computer science faculty diploma, just because by law, the more educated employee should have bigger payment http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/violent.gif

But as this is a former socialist country people are just not used to investing much into their business, and the best way of saving money is cutting down employees' payments :( That must be why so few of private companies here succeed, everyone wants the profit but no one's willing to invest in quality :(
