I recently saw a news post on Facebook that had a photo of youth from an East African country in a public demonstration. The young people were on the street in a protest to highlight growing unemployment among university graduates. One placard read: ‘For every ten applicants only one gets a job. Where should we go?’
Young people find themselves in difficult times with growing unemployment in all continents. And instead of joining everyone around you moaning, what else can you do?
The days of secure, paid employment in government offices or the private sector are over for the majority of the population. There will be more workers offering their services for pay in short or long-term contracts. Prospective customers are no longer those within country boundaries. New opportunities can be accessed in new ways with technological advancement.
Stop moaning about jobs and go after the markets.
