Desperate Job Snipers


Our educational institutions are churning out hundreds of thousands of desperate job hunters that are ready to carry on the tradition of the nine-to-five, thirty-days-make-a-pay mindset. Nothing wrong with that, except that when it is all that they have been taught, it is dangerous. The labor market only has a few slots that ensures about 5% of them get employed in the first year after graduation; the brightest among them that is; the whole process is so skewed and amoebic that folks end up doing jobs they have absolutely no knowledge about. This means the hiring company would have to spend precious money and time to train and equip with the relevant skill set. Solution, know what you are good at and develop it, then you have something to add to the system.
