I triple majored in 3 different STEM fields, which did nothing for me for getting a job. Face it, we are not a meritocracy.

Yes, clearly the problem is that the system failed to reward your achievements, not that you overestimated their merits.

Or maybe not many people see triple majoring as particularly meritorious. Frankly, getting a degree in any STEM major should improve your odds of getting a job by approximately one billion percent.
