Allow me to advice fresh graduates who have until yesterday been celebrating their long waited academic success. This is the time of joy and you real need to maintain the happiness through creating jobs.
You are now joining a tougher world that demands a lot of in put not only in terms of competition but also in terms of delivery and scarcity of jobs.
Today, we are not only concerned with paper qualifications, but the capacity to deliver accompanying it. So many people have degrees and these degrees defer; some are high class, satisfaction and pass.
This can be irrelevant if you do not live to expectations. The distinction will however be shown when employers, start giving interviews both written and oral. The right candidates under normal circumstances will be determined.
If you got your distinctions through cram work, be sure that you will get problems in passing job giving interviews. So many serious private employers, do not only look at your qualifications, but want you to prove it on the ground, and this has been a problem to many graduates.
Do not be the next victims. All the above factors remaining constant, you need to be job creators. There is nothing as good as self employment, forget about the common excuse of lack of initial capital.
For getting initial capital is the beginning of creation and if you begin from scratch, be assured of success in future.
I therefore argue all graduates to aim at self employment to day or tomorrow and of course the earlier the better.
