Causes of unemployment
- Programme/course studied at the university: we are in 21st century and its full of information technology (IT),engineering and science. But a lot of people don’t know, most are studying courses which has less employment opportunities or are archaic and are no more needed in the system. For example, study of bones(osteology),what are you using this course for? Will you get employed after college? Can you employed yourself? These are the questions to ask yourself. My advice for you is to choose the right courses which has many job opportunities and can easily get employed after college, either self employed or by organization or government. Right now teaching, nursing, engineering and IT course are the best courses, with IT you can early do short courses that will help you earn a living.
- Reduce your taste for white color job(office job). A lot of graduates had the skills one needs to set up their own business to earn a living but are not willing to do so, why? Because they have developed a high taste for white color job, they want someone or the government to employed them, which is bad ,as a graduate use your skilled that you acquired through formal education to create job ,employed yourself. For instance if you are a teacher you can organized classes for pupils with fee, graphic design graduate can your own a shop/printing house .
- In all dear readers do something for yourself with your skills and your God given talent don’t want till someone or the government employed you and be current too
