If you are a graduate and you are looking for job/employment, honestly, there are at some reasons why you will not get a job. So, I will advise you should start building your capacity to start your own business. Below are some reasons why you will not get a job.
1. You Are A Product of a Bad Educational System: Look at the poor funding and management of our educational system in addition to the strikes. This has made our institution products a laughing stock. In fact, the curriculum of some studies in the institutions are not in demand. Failure of school curriculum to place emphasis on practical concepts of entreprenuership and too much emphasis on theoretical education than entreprenuership exposure is a major problem.
2. You Lack The Required Skill. Employers continue to complain about scarcity of skills among graduates. Employers are obviously tired of seeing same set of individuals with same set of qualifications springing up for interviews daily whereas they are in need of someone that will stand out. So ask yourself, what employable skill do I have?
3. You Lack Personal Capability To Deliver: What have you done since you graduate to develop your personal capability? I think many graduates believe in their certificate and not in their individual capability which would make or mar their pursuits of employment. Many lack self-development and I belief you belong to that category.
4. You Can't Meet Employers’ Unrealistic Demands: Employers stating job experiences as much as 3 years for fresh graduates. Age restriction, height, gender, language and many more, under these tense conditions, hardly will you see a graduate that will scale through and qualify for job application requirement except those who want to cross-carpet..
5. Lack of Digital Skills: In this digital age, if you lack the digital skills and creativity to thrive in relation to your profession, you will surely be chasing a ghost if you are looking for a well paying job. You can acquire some digital skills here, if interested.
6. You Want The Pay But Not The Work: Ask yourself... Is it really the work you want or more about the pay to be able to offset some bills. Many Nigerian graduates think of getting employed today and get a car or probably buy a mansion in the next month, based on their salary. You and I know that such only happen in dreams. Success is built over time and with hard work, perseverance, dedication and being focused over the years. Are you willing to make the sacrifice?
So, What Is The Way Forward?
