27-Year Old With Doctorate Degree in Business Was Initially Rejected By 25 Universities

Dr. Eli Joseph

Nationwide — Dr. Eli Joseph earned a bachelor’s degree at the age of 20, a master’s degree at age 21, and a doctorate degree while teaching at an Ivy League institution by the age of 24. As a TEDx speaker, he has always had a chip on his shoulder that was cultivated by the amount of failure and rejection that he has endured over the years. For that reason, he has authored a new book called The Perfect Rejection Resume that examines the introspective contrast of success (rejection) while providing unique ways that people can build confidence to overcome their failures.

Dr. Joseph has faced many rejections along the way. He comments, “We have a résumé that highlights our successes throughout our careers. Well recently, I created a rejection résumé which highlights all of my failures.” He cultivated a single-page document, formatted like a résumé that highlights all his major failures through education (rejections from institutions), work experience (rejections from firms), and awards (rejections from organizations).

The book uses his chapter interludes to collaborate with some influential people including Dr. Janice Gassam (Forbes Contributor), Jarry Lee (NYC signed Model/ Former BuzzFeed Deputy Editor), Devyn Simone (Wendy Williams/MTV television host), and many more.

Furthermore, Dr. Joseph uses his insight to explain how time is our biggest competition, the importance of building powerful networks, and the importance of career diversification.

In addition to being an author, Dr. Joseph is a Haitian American researcher and educator who is active in behavioral finance, data analytics, statistics, and quantitative finance. Currently a partner and medical examiner at Quest Diagnostics and a member of the Grammy Recording Academy, Eli also serves as a faculty member at the Columbia University of Professional Studies and Queens College, City University of New York.

In 2015, Eli Joseph obtained a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Queens College, City University of New York. In 2016, he completed his master’s degree in Business Administration from Brooklyn College and then went on to complete his Doctorate in Business Administration from Felician University in 2019. He became the first-ever graduate at the institution to complete the curriculum.

The Perfect Rejection Resume is available on Amazon.
