    Promoting Literary Activities Worldwide

    Sunday, 6 August 2017


    I was motivated to write this having attended  Adekunle Babatunde Samson Business Seminar hosted by Junior Chamber International  Nigeria, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic.

    Nigerians have gotten used to the idea that once you've graduated you begin searching for a job. No one said that isn't right but that ideology is archaic.
    Many great people in life never finished school yet became great entrepreneurs.
    Look at a country whereby at least 50,000 students graduate yearly and all are searching for jobs. Are the job opportunities sufficient for all?
    Many interviews, amidst 100 interviewees just 1 would be employed. What then happens to the rest?
    They become a member of the unemployed class.
    Some engage in fraudulent activities just to survive.
    Opportunities lay waste around us cause of our negligent attitudes. Many possess skills and ideas worth millions of naira.
    If you don't build your dream, someone else will employ you to build theirs.
    Entrepreneurship has proven to be a valid panacea to unemployment. So why wait to get employed when you posses a skill which you can turn to profit.
    Going to school doesn't mean you will get employed or even having a first class result.
    Always have a Plan B when deciding life choices.
    There are Entrepreneurship workshop around where one can partake in and acquire a skill and become self-employed or even set up a business and employ others.
    There are a lot of employable graduate and very few jobs. If we don't have a job we have to create one. We ask ourselves why we get rejected having packaged your CV well.
    It's simple, "If the purpose of a thing is not know, abuse is inevitable".
    Even as students you can acquire a skill so when you graduate you can utilize such into profit.
    There was a recent Entrepreneurship workshop that was held at Moshood Abiola Polytechnic organized by Junior Chamber International Nigeria, Moshood Abiola Polytechnic.
    It was targeted at empowering young individuals with entrepreneurial skill to ensure they don't become jobless in the future. I was fortunate to partake in such workshop and acquired Photography Skills.
    If only youths would acquire skills and turn it into profit, we wouldn't have graduates gallivanting around.
    It is of a truth that everyone isn't wired to be a CEO.
    Education is the best legacy, so they say but it won't always provide jobs or solve unemployment issues.
    On this note, i bid you farewell.
