"We cant offer you full-time because you're from an average University"
My manager told me this on my last week of my internship. I recorded his ass red-handed when he said this coz he's been having a not-so-acceptable behaviour when he talks to me. I think he has a problem with where I am from. Apparently I will get my green card faster or something and he asks me stuff like "if you're born in Dubai, what passport do u hold ?" during team gatherings infront of everyone. I am from Pakistan and got my undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Cal poly SLO.

How should I proceed ? Have been putting all my hopes in Cisco for a full-time gig, for the last year, working part-time remotely and I am sad as I wasted all that time.

    Meet some SJWs from Vox, or something, and publish it as clickbait journalism. That's about all you can do. I'd take the racist accusations angle, fyi. Sounds more damning than college prestige.

      Cisco is great. I have a feeling it's coz my manager has recently switched roles from a developer role. And he has been at Cisco for decades trying to get his green card perhaps. Tbh I don't want to be too mean to him.

    It’s illegal to record your convo without his consent
